Just thought I'd give you all a look at our latest
completed Project Beautify property.
This little adorableness is nestled in the midtown area of
Ventura, CA. She was built in 1955, is 1204 sq. ft and
was a 3 bedroom 1 bath before we got a hold of her:)
The outside got some fresh paint, landscape, shutters and our signature
window box to cute her up:)
Then we went inside...
So here's the original floor plan. After walking the house,
we noticed that the Master bedroom was so much bigger than the kitchen,
and had this huge beautiful window that looked into the backyard.
It also weirdly had a door going into the laundry room.
So we decided to do a little flip flopping.
We moved the kitchen to the master bedroom and opened up walls
to make a great room.
The red walls are the ones that were removed.
The green wall were the ones that were put in.
End result being this.
Better use of space and we added a master bathroom!
This was the before front room with the doorway to the bedrooms.
Trim trim trim and a fab barn door! And let's just have a moment
over those original hardwood floors!!!
The kitchen before in what is now the master bedroom.
The cabinets were only a few years old so we used them!
My son Ryne who can rock a finish like no other,
We then filled in with custom cabinets where needed,
like the peninsula:)
The hubby made those x doors, because his crazy wife
just had to have a farm sink. Meaning, he had to cut the existing cabinet down
to accommodate the sink and the doors below ended up too tall:(
Soo he made those, and I LOVE them!!!
This is the before hall bath.
And now the after:)
Yes of course there are beautiful hardwood floors under that carpet!
This is just the cutest bedroom ever!
I LOVE that ceiling!!
And here's the master bath. Cute eh?
I ordered that vanity and when I opened it up, the "marble" countertop
was this hideous pinkish color. I stood there staring at it
trying to convince myself that it could work.
It wouldn't. No way:(
So after I cried a bucket of tears,
I went down to Ventura Stone and picked out
of their bone pile and found this beauty!
The master closet is behind that door:)
That sweet house on Arbor street hit the MLS on Friday and
was sold on....Friday!!
Now we're off to the next one!!
The Addison house in Ventura, California.
Built in 1958, featured in Architectural Digest in 1961!
It had never been for sale until now.
And we get to love on it.
How cool is that??!!
