Studio Hus, founded by Tatum Kendrick, overhauled a dated traditional-style home in Los Feliz, creating a stylish modern residence with character and verve.
Kendrick approaches each renovation “With the vision of an artist and a mind of an architect, she layers projects with equal measure function and form, pulling inspiration from fashion, art and historical architecture.”
Starting with the exterior, the home’s former beige wood siding and flagstone accents were replaced with creamy white brick, and dormers were reworked to simplify the facade and make room for a dramatic double-height entry.
Inside, the five-bedroom 3,167-square-foot house opens to a Belgian-inspired interior. The entrance hall leads to an open kitchen/dining and living room with sliding doors opening to the travertine paved patio with a heated lounge pool and garden.
The fireplace in the living room, once flanked by built-in bookshelves and a dated wood surround were replaced with smooth white walls and stone. Adjacent to the kitchen dressed with Italian marble countertops is an oversized butler’s pantry and separate laundry room. Completing the first floor is a guest suite with an en-suite bathroom and a custom oak-paneled media room, office, and powder room.
Upstairs you’ll find two guest bedrooms and the primary suite, fitted with a large bathroom and walk-in closet.
In addition to the pool, the drought-tolerant back yard features a sizable detached guest house with its own bathroom and kitchenette, perfect for your guests.
Built in 1950, 2420 Glendower Ave, stands near Griffith Park and the celebrated Greek Theater. Last sold in 2020 for $2,005,000, the residence is now asking a tad under $4,200,000.
