Design firm Breland-Harper’s first project in Mount Washington is on the market, reminding us how effortlessly the duo turns ugly homes into proverbial swans.
Whether it’s a Spanish-style residence in Frogtown or a mid-century modern home in Mount Washington, each space Breland-Harper overhauls has an exquisite sense of openness and light. And the same goes for this residence built in 1991 on a gently sloping lot, steps away from Elyria Canyon Park.
Simplicity reigns throughout as each room unfold in a series of airy spaces filled with dappling light. Restored steel frame windows and wood doors afford an effortless indoor-outdoor flow within the three-bedroom, three-bath home.
They imported Italian wood floors and laid them throughout the main and upper levels–even in the bathrooms. Hand-poured concrete counters and steel cabinets in the kitchen, brass hardware, and exposed white rafters combine to give this house a minimal yet warm and modern aesthetic.
The upper level holds the bedrooms, including the primary, with vaulted ceilings and an ensuite bathroom. Each bedroom window frames the surrounding views. At street level, there’s a guest suite with cement flooring and a large closet and bathroom.
Outside, there’s a roomy terrace for al fresco dining or lounging by a wood-burning fireplace. A rustic path flows up the gently terraced yard planted with lavender and olive trees. At the top, there’s a flat mesa where you can take in the surrounding views.
The neighborhood surrounding 1732 Bridgeport Drive offers two local coffee shops–Little Barn Coffee House and Loquat Coffee. You can venture into Glassell Park and grab a bite at Lemon Poppy Kitchen, Wife and the Somm, or Dunsmoor. Or head to Eagle Rock for more dining options.
Seeking $1,587,000, there’s a two-car garage and the potential to build an ADU.
