Located in the Kentwood area of Westchester, Los Angeles, this 2800 S.F. traditional home serves as a launch pad for a busy family of five. The home is designed to embrace the pool centric back yard while allowing quiet nooks for studying and reading to populate the first and second floor. Technically an “addition”, the design salvages the existing wood burning fireplace of the original home. Upon entry, a formal living room is linked to a guest bedroom/study that can be opened up by means of multiple pocket doors. Clerestory windows above eye level and glazed doors surround the living and dining areas providing access to natural light and wide views to the backyard which feature a covered flagstone deck with fire pit and swimming pool. The home utilizes Cape Cod details like lap siding, arched openings, and architectural columns to add the sophistication of this home. Completed in 2015.
