A renovated farmhouse in Los Angeles with gorgeous curb appeal

This renovated farmhouse project by JWT Associates entails the complete overhaul and addition of a home constructed in 1938, located in The Oaks, a historic Los Angeles neighborhood. The original front facade remains entirely intact. The interior was reconfigured and modernized while staying true to the spirit of the original house. As the house was taken apart, every item removed was tagged and kept for reuse.

Most of the original windows remain, but the few that were removed are now in new locations — one providing light into the powder room, another placed between the master vanity and shower. Ceiling rafters were reused as tie beams in the living room and master bedroom. Existing door knobs, light fixtures, and sinks were shuffled around until they found a home… Continue below to see the before and after floor plans!

The kitchen was moved to the back of the house and has large windows open to the backyard. The ceiling in the front den was vaulted while walls of bookshelves were added, extending to the ceiling. The living room ceiling was also vaulted.

The rest of the attic was transformed into a new master bedroom suite. The master was designed to look like it was added in stages over the years, with painted wood boarding and a dormer area sheathed in stained beadboard. Another new dormer contains the master shower.

What We Love: This renovated farmhouse offers its inhabitants a complete overhaul of a dilapidated house into a completely refreshed living space. The architects did a fabulous job of enhancing the aesthetics of this home with stylish details and mixing old with new. We are loving the bright and airy living room and the beautifully refreshed kitchen that is now open, spacious, and ready for entertaining.
