This two-story in Mar Vista underwent the kind of facelift that suggests more witness protection program than a quick nip and tuck. The transformative renovation resulted in a like-new property with premium amenities and contemporary appeal.
Large modern windows and skylights flood the open-concept interior with natural light. Warming wood floors, modern light fixtures and a staircase with a steel bannister further the sophisticated style.
