I’m excited to give Take Sunset readers a sneak peek into another stunning transformation by ModOp Design. This Spanish architectural was built in 1928 and has only had two prior owners. Conveniently located in West Hollywood and close to the restaurants and shops of Melrose and Fairfax, this 1,480 square foot home features many original details along with modern updates for the discerning buyer.
Known for their thoughtful renovations of mid-century modern and bungalow homes on the east side, a Spanish style house in West Hollywood is a change of pace for ModOp’s Greg Steinberg and Alexandra Becket. But this was a project they couldn’t pass up: “The minute we stepped inside the front door of this home, we fell in love with its original character,” Alexandra says. “The wood beams took our breath away, and we saw tremendous potential in restoring its original charm.” Greg agrees, adding, “We had been looking in the neighborhood and passed up a few, but this one stood out.”
The West Hollywood neighborhood is an area that the couple knows well. Their own home, which Greg has lived in for over 20 years, is located only a few blocks away. ”I’ve always liked that the neighborhood is so centrally located and walkable,” Alexandra says. “And since the Grove opened, the neighborhood has improved tremendously. So many great businesses, restaurants and stores have opened. We never have to drive, if we don’t feel like it!”
Some of Greg and Alexandra’s favorite places to go in the neighborhood? “The Melrose Place Farmers Market on Sundays, walking to Whole Foods, the Coffee Commissary, Lindy & Grundy, or grabbing lunch at The Golden State, V Cafe or Froma,” Alexandra says. “Favorites neighborhood activities are Thai massages at the new PaliHotel, City Yoga, Runyon Canyon, and the new West Hollywood library. In the evening I love to walk to the Fairfax Farmers Market for dinner at Short Order and see a movie at the Grove!”
Cook for family and friends in the brand-new kitchen featuring Viking appliances, and dine in the light-filled breakfast nook or in the large dining room.
Three large bedrooms offer numerous possibilities, including options for a home office and guest space.
Upgrades include brand-new air conditioning and heat, upgraded electrical and plumbing, reinforced chimney, 2-car garage, and new oak hardwood floors.
Both baths feature lovely Granada floor tiles. The master bath offers a claw foot bathtub and double vanity sinks with Caesarstone counter tops. In fact, Alexandra says one of her and Greg’s favorite features about the house is this master bath. “We dream of soaking in the claw foot tub!” she says.
There is a fully enclosed backyard where you can relax in the sun.
The yard is fully hedged and gated and includes a video intercom system for an even greater sense of privacy.
As always with ModOp Designs, no detail was missed. This home is a true treasure and will certainly be appreciated and loved by its lucky new owner! Be sure to see it now before it’s too late.
As always, email me or call me at 323-775-6305 to set up a showing.
