From the Westwood Park Association website:
"Westwood Park is a neighborhood in the south western area of San Francisco, California. Designed as a “residence park” for middle class residents, it consists of more than 650 bungalow-style homes. Building in Westwood Park began in 1916, with the majority of homes completed in the 1920s.
Exterior ~ Before
A fresh coat of paint, new wood windows and landscaping brought this beauty back to life!
The house still had it's original appliances, linoleum floor and a wall that separated the kitchen from the rest of the house. There was a staircase to the basement that we relocated and added 2 bedrooms + 2 baths to the house.
We wanted the design to reflect a modern, yet, traditional feel. We worked to bring back some dark & warm wood tones with the island and hardwood floor, while opening up walls making the interior brighter and functional for today's families.
The wood on the built-in buffet was in really bad shape, termites and lack of care had ruined its beauty. We cleaned it up, painted the wainscot and woodwork and kept the buffet & mirror in its original location.
The living room features curved, wood windows, the original coved ceiling and the original clay, fireplace tile, and all add to this bungalows historic charm.
