Why we have a crush on this property
The mid-century home was built in 1964. Henderson writes that when she bought it, the place retained unsavory details, like “gross ‘original’ carpet, outdated everything and a lot of painted brown ceilings.” She spent the next three years restoring and renovating her first-ever home, and chronicled those updates on her blog. Luckily for this home’s new owners, Henderson’s stylish touches remain.
The main living room boasts a step-down seating area with a soaring stone fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows that drench the place in sunlight. The walls of glass lead to a renovated balcony, where you can glimpse the Hollywood sign, the Griffith Observatory, and some killer sunsets.
Henderson transformed the kitchen into a breezy in-home oasis, converting the bottom cabinets to a deep blue color. She also brightened the family room and several bedrooms by painting the beamed ceilings white, and completely overhauled a bathroom with brass fixtures and scalloped tiling. The playful wall coverings in her son’s room, meanwhile, still remain.
