• From a small non-descript 1950s bungalow has sprung an exuberant beachside Cottage. Seemingly standing in this place for decades on end, this residence is a clever marriage of contemporary living and a classic beach lifestyle.
  • Warm and welcoming, the ambiance for this home is communicated the moment one steps through the front gate.
  • A longstanding tradition in Old Town Seal Beach is the front patio—the perfect place to greet the day, as well as one’s neighbors.
  • Upon entering the house one is immediately welcomed into the heart of the home, as square footage is efficiently utilized via the creation of a new Great Room area to make the most of a tight footprint.
  • An underperforming kitchen that had been completely walled off from the rest of the house is expanded and incorporated into the new great room area.
  • The beach cottage feel is enhanced through architectural details like wainscoting, tongue & groove ceiling and classic fireplace in the Great Room area.
  • Providing a striking architectural focal point, as well as much needed natural light to the interior of the home, the stairwell provides a beautiful visual connection to the new family room upstairs, as well as an impressive double height space for the dining area.
  • The view into the Great Room area from the stairwell.
  • The stairwell serves to flood the interior of the home with light.
