Feels great, looks amazing — I don’t know what the home looked like before the House Crashers’ design team got a hold of it, but today it’s the essence of fun and fabulous, outfitted in cool pale tones with unexpected touches.
It’s not every day that you’ll see a large bar that’s faced with decorative hammered metal, with a Spanish flair. The bar is topped with reclaimed wood and above it, hang pendant lights in a modern and very cool design.
The kitchen in this 1960s home has been completely remodeled with light wood flooring, stainless appliances and dark-as-night black granite. The kitchen includes a dishwasher, five-burner cook top, oven, and a decorative range that ties everything together. The kitchen island that also serves as a divide in the middle of the great room, is outfitted in hammered metal beneath the seating area, which mirrors the bar just beyond.
The great room has been completely re-done as well. The fireplace wall is decorated in a textured surface that ads a cool modern vibe, and the design is similar to that of the metal facings in the room. The focal point is the large fireplace that has an oversized hearth that’s topped with travertine. The fireplace itself is topped with a large reclaimed wood beam that pairs rustic with modern — a striking combination. The fireplace is flanked by glass-fronted, waist-high cabinetry — a nod to the 60s era.
Another outstanding modern feature is that the great room wall toward the backyard has been replaced with a large, folding series of glass panels that allow the entire back patio to be part of the living space. The room, as you can imagine, is flooded with light and just feels good.
Head down the hall and you’ll fall in love with the guest bath that has been remodeled, as well. The bath includes an oversized jetted bathtub, and a pedestal sink, also a cool, modern look.
The master is washed in soothing grays, the bath is gray granite tile, the shower a rain-head for maximum relaxation. The master bath has a pedestal sink, and there’s a skylight in the room, as well.
The House Crashers team didn’t have to do anything with the patio and the grounds. An oversized deck, along with a lower patio area offer extensive seating to view the large park-like yard. On nearly an acre, the property is filled with a variety of oak trees and granite outcroppings. The shaded areas of the yard are filled with pink camellia, and the house itself is the traditional white exterior with black trim and black front door with beveled glass insert.
The home is updated, has indoor/outdoor surround sound. It’s modern and has an outstanding floor plan, with an additional garage or storage building on property. The Hidden Valley neighborhood includes a clubhouse, lake access and a horse arena.
