Originally built in 1947, this renovated house in Los Angeles has been given a modern farmhouse makeover. The house is set back from the street with mature landscaping, a gated entry, and a large front yard.

The house is listed for sale through Jagger Kroener of The Agency.

Let’s take a look around the home and it’s guest house…

The Exterior

The exterior of this house was inspired by modern farmhouses, however a matte black exterior gives it a contemporary appearance, and a small porch creates a place to relax or take shoes off before going inside.

The Living Room

Stepping inside, there’s an open floor plan with the living room at the front of the house. A vaulted ceiling creates a sense of height, while the furnishings and wide-plank oak floors add warmth to the interior.
