Great Bones, Greater Decorating

We sold a home in this same neighborhood a few years back. These homes were built by S&S and have great bones — nice clean lines and floor plans that just plain work (sometimes with a little tweaking). 

I remember thinking to myself these would make a great base for a cool mid-century ranch — the kind of place that can keep both spouses happy when one wants a sputnik lamp in every room and the other wants to shop at Ethan Allen. It’s the kind of house that can feel cool, and modern, but never feel cold and too committed.

We like what they’ve done with the place: clean white walls and a front door that says “style” without screaming it in your ear. The indoor planter and preserved original stonework there and on the fireplace doesn’t hurt. The kitchen and baths are simple and clean remodels. But the real magic is in the furnishings and staging. Everything is pulled together and it completes the package. Altogther, it’s a turnkey home at a very reasonable price.

What’s cool is that with a property like this you can move right in, but it also gives a lot of home and inspiration. This home is an example, a beacon of light, on what can be done with a home type that is actually quite ubiquitous throughout Southern California: the 1960s ranch. Literally, I think S&S built thousands of them throughout LA and Orange Counties.
