BEFORE |Peeling paint, broken windows and scratched floors gave the house a scary vibe.

AFTER |Now there’s an open-plan living-dining-kitchen area and a lush new backyard.

BEFORE | The new owners saved as many of the existing windows and moldings as they could, and installed a Dutch door. They also went to Pasadena Architectural Salvage to source vintage fittings — doorknobs and hinges, drawer pulls, cabinet knobs — close in style to what originals remained.

AFTER | The kitchen has a black-and-white checkered floor and pale gray cabinetry, with some of the original hardware retained.

BEFORE | The property required nine months of extensive work, including reconfiguring the interior space so it now offers three bedroom suites with walk-in closets, including a master with its own sitting area.

AFTER | Inside, the owners wanted a clean and contemporary canvas: Floors are polished wood; walls are white; natural light abounds.

AFTER | The interior space was reconfigured to now offer three bedroom suites with walk-in closets, including a master with its own sitting area. They replaced tinted windows in the master bedroom with clear glass to optimize views.

AFTER | “We wanted it to feel like a period house and not like everything was brand-new,”  says one of the investor. “That would defeat the purpose.”
