Two design firms team up to turn a crumbling CA Bungalow in Highland Park into a magazine-worthy residence.
After upgrading the core systems of the house (think foundation, installing new HVAC, adding copper plumbing, new electrical plus a 200-amp panel) RESET LA in collaboration with VEIN Design added unique design elements inside and out.
Curbside, the dwelling clad in darkened-pine siding is set behind privacy hedges and surrounded by fresh, drought-tolerant, landscaping.
An 8′ iron entry door opens to a space nearly double its previous size with soaring ceilings throughout the open floor plan, designer light fixtures, and thoughtfully placed skylights that let in tons of natural light.
The 1,410 square feet of living space offers three bedrooms, and two baths and features a kitchen with top-of-the-line AGA Legacy appliances, Brizo fixtures, a deep Kohler Farmhouse sink, custom mint cabinets complemented by butcher block counters, and a bright subway-tile backsplash.
Custom vanities, hex tiles, and a pastel tub add a unique touch to the bathrooms.
The minimally landscaped yard feels like a momentary getaway from all that’s trendy and happening down on York Blvd and takes advantage of the views of the surrounding hills from the upper terrace.
Previously sold for $590K in 2017 the home is now represented by Dominique Madden with a list price of $1.099 million.
