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!”
