Most people have heard of Cypress but far fewer know where it is. It’s funny, Cypress is a city that many homebuyers forget about — it actually has an amazingly central location that bridges the gap between Westside cities that run along the 405 and Eastside cities that run along the 5. But even more importantly, it’s a treasure trove of larger contemporary homes built in the mid-to-late 1960s. Far too often we have clients who love the homes of the 1950s, but they just need a bit more space.
Often times we’ll see these homes come up (this is a pretty popular model in Cypress) and think, “wow…done right this place could be awesome!” — but rarely do they come up with renovation that accentuate, rather than fighting the homes’ contemporary lines. Until now.
We believe these homes were built by the Deane Brothers, who built some very similar homes in Lake Forest. The bones are great and the floor plans work out of the box, which is a real plus. The living rooms have soaring ceilings and exposed stairs and an interior balcony. Pick the right railings, as they’ve done here, and the effect is stunning and looks like something that could have been built today, not 1968.
The kitchen is big and while I think the surfaces chosen might swing a little too far to the “trendy” side (I wonder how we might feel about some of them in 10-15 years), they’ve done a great job making everything work together, and if you’ve read anything of mine, you know what a big fan I am of cohesiveness.
You could buy a similar home for less and do the renovations yourself — but take it from someone in the middle of a big remodel, it’s a serious lifestyle commitment. Turnkey flips are everywhere. Flips that work right are rare. Don’t hesitate to call us for a private showing.
