This reimagined Mar Vista house comes with a slick prefab guesthouse

Fronted by a xeriscape garden, this new-look home in Mar Vista offers an update on the bungalow style with Mangaris wood paneling and corrugated steel across the front facade. Central courtyard decking sits between the home and a two-bedroom, pre-fabricated guest home with a full kitchen. A pre-fab module was also added to the main house during a 2009 renovation to create the master suite.
