NORTH PARK WITH A VIEW

A blend of strong color, Craftsman influence and clean, Contemporary lines give this North Park “tear-down and remodel” a prominent stance and new western view. The home is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath with galley kitchen, office, fireplace, wrap-around porch and 2 balconies – all on a 700 SF footprint. Much of the house is designed to maximize space and utilize the property’s square footage limits. A clever pop-out in the master bedroom creates more room for the bed; two second floor balconies offer quick escape to the outdoors; floor-to-ceiling built-ins wrap the Living Room fireplace and provide both formality and functionality, and the space beneath the stair sees additional use as an office “cove.” Finally, clever “Smart Technology” permits the owner to “buzz” the front gate open from a remote location – which comes in handy when enjoying views from the upper balcony of North Park, University Heights, Mission Hills and points both east and west.
