Home of the Day: Business in the front, party in the back

From the curb, this modest Midcentury-era home in the Beverly Crest neighborhood offers traditional appeal. The back of the house? Well, that tells a different story.

An open-concept interior seamlessly merges living spaces with a special design focus on a whimsical exterior mural, gas fireplace features and a new swimming pool and spa. Floor-to-ceiling walls and doors of glass further the indoor-outdoor experience.
