Residential : Addition & Remodel

Whalen Residence

Back to project list

This extensive remodel / addition created a new two-story residence from a small early 1960’s one-story tract home in a suburb of Los Angeles. The original house was the Owner’s childhood home, however, with his own newly expanding family, certain life-style changes and dated features and amenities was simply inadequate for his current situation and needed a substantial transformation.

The remodel / addition re-configured the home to include 5-bedrooms and 3-3/4 baths on two levels. The lower floor includes a combined Living / Dining Room, Kitchen w/ Nook and Utility, Family Room, two Bedrooms and two-car Garage. The upper floor includes a Master Bedroom Suite, two Bedrooms and a loft-like Study / Library overlooking the Family Room below.

Two upper level Decks, a generous front Porch and a rear Loggia w/ built-in BBQ allow for ample opportunities to connect the interior of the home w/ the exterior and to capture southern views of the Palos Verdes Peninsula.

Construction was completed in 1990.
