My husband and I purchased a "fixer upper" in the Cliff May Rancho Estates in 2009. Looking at the 'Before' photos now, I can't believe we took on this project – It was a mess!

As an interior designer and heritage conservationist, I knew what it could be. We restored many original features, carefully considered materials and finishes such as the VCT flooring that would have originally been in the home and rehabbed the kitchen and baths with Heath Tile. Almost six years later, I'm proud to share the results.

Thanks, Sarah!
