A historic 1912 Spanish bungalow in Historic Old Torrance was added onto, creating a open and livable space for the new owners. The design followed historical guidelines set by the City and the small 725 square foot home literally still exists within the walls of the renovated 1650 square foot addition/ remodel.
Following a traditional yet pure Californian vibe, the interior was given a fresh update using warm and happy colors of grey, yellow, creams and shades of turquoise. Art and accents include inherited family heirlooms, California impressionist oil paintings and custom artwork by Sharon Goddard, the homeowner’s mother. A tiny dysfunctional kitchen was turned into a working space suitable for a chef with double ovens, Wolf range top, multiple sinks, beverage and 42” sub-zero refrigerators. The short coved ceilings in the living and dining room were opened up to a grand 13 ft and all the original architectural coving was re-used in the guest bedroom. Custom lighting design and fixtures are placed throughout the home. The guest bath downstairs remained original complete with it’s cast iron built in tub and wood medicine cabinet — it received a new pedestal sink, toilet, soft airy blue paint and white marble floor and wall tiles.
The Master Suite second story addition includes a roomy space with his and hers closets,laundry closet and ensuite restroom with his and her vanities, freestanding soaking and walk in shower. White subway tiles are complimented by marble octagon backsplashes to keep with the homes historic charm.
