Originally built in 1962 during the height of the mid-century modern era, this 1,200 square foot, two bedroom home has been lovingly renovated by the owner, a local architect, bringing modern upgrades, while sticking respectfully to the aesthetic of the architecture. Practical upgrades include a new roof, completely new HVAC system, upgraded electrical service and panel, whole house water filtration, as well as a new water heater. The kitchen and both bathrooms were fully gutted, with all copper plumbing lines replaced with PVC, and all new plumbing fixtures, finishes, appliances and cabinetry. The original light fixtures have all been replaced with energy efficient LED models in recessed, surface mounted, and pendant applications. Existing tile floors were removed to expose the original, pristine terrazzo beneath. New built in wardrobes were added in both bedrooms. The laundry area was brought under air with a new framed wall to separate it from the garage, which allowed space for pantry shelving. A brand new, impact rated front entry door was designed by the owner, using the same motif found in the unique breeze block, and garage door trim. Lush landscaping, and a charming gated courtyard with period mosaic tile floor add privacy from the busy street, a rare feature for this neighborhood. A home with this character and architectural pedigree doesn't come on the market often!
