New life is given to this 1965 Craig Ellwood house with an exacting exterior restoration and an interior renovation, all while maintaining the integrity of the original design. Needing significant work, the shell of the home is upgraded to preserve the longevity of the structure and to meet contemporary performance standards. Small adjustments to the layout of the bathrooms and kitchen update this home for modern living and comfort.
Only 1,700 square feet, an informed blend of custom contemporary and authentic mid-century furnishings are carefully scaled into the compact, open living area. Throughout the home, natural materials extend the intention of the original detailing. Earth-toned ceramic tile, ribbed glass, brass-plated hardware, dark marbles with golden veining, black granite, and honey-toned teak all enrich the interior.
