Open House Obsession: Sweet Altadena Cottage, $649KAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 3262 Laurice Avenue, Altadena
When: Sunday, May 10 from 2:00pm-4:00pm
What: One of the best remodels we’ve seen in a while, this classic postwar, 3-bed, 2-bath board-and-batten cottage now has a low-key, simple vibe.
We were especially impressed with the tightly-organized kitchen (and graphic Moroccan tile floor) that’s open to both the dining area and the yard.
Like the uncluttered master bath (below) the house wins with a well-orchestrated collection of (mostly) off-the-shelf choices.
Front and back, no lawn to water or mow. The garage currently serves as a cabana/party room, string up a few lanterns and we could easily see this backyard holding a crowd on a warm evening.
