San Diego, California
2020 Regional CotY Award Winner, Entire House $500,001 to $750,000
A neglected midcentury ranch with good structure was restored to its original purpose as a beautiful family home. Lived in by one owner, the existing home felt like entering a time warp. This home was dramatically transformed while staying within its footprint to retain a sense of place in the neighborhood. The curb appeal was refreshed with an exterior honoring original midcentury ideas but updated for today. Inside, existing disjointed levels were evened out to create an open expanse, extending to a stunning outdoor living space. With a view over a canyon and beyond to the ocean, this modern home is exceptional.
