Near the Del Rey and Mar Vista neighborhoods in Los Angeles, this 1937 Craftsman-style bungalow has been revamped with a decidedly modern facade and a concrete addition at the rear. Inside, the communal spaces have been joined to create a massive great room.

Located near Santa Monica and Venice Beach, this reimagined Craftsman home features a concrete front porch, accented by contrasting wood cladding along the front facade and porch overhang.

A great room greets you just behind the front door. Wide-plank hardwood floors and a pitched ceiling lead the eye across the unencumbered space.

The great room provides a single open space for living and entertaining, while the modern addition holds the home’s three bedrooms and two bedrooms, linked by a single hallway. Outside, a yard wraps around the home, complete with raised vegetable beds and a garden shed in the rear corner. A deck also provides an area for outdoor seating in addition to the front porch.

The living, dining, and kitchen areas flow into one another.

The kitchen features ample wood cabinetry, hexagonal tile flooring in a saturated blue, and a vintage-style range.

French doors open to the deck and yard, while a long hallway connects the great room to the home’s bedrooms.

In total, the home offers nearly 1,700 square feet of interior space, along with a one-car garage and gated driveway. The location is within walking distance to many popular neighborhood spots and just a few miles from Santa Monica and Venice Beach.

The deck features space for outdoor dining and built-in seating to one side. The original home transitions into a rectangular, modern addition that extends from the rear.

Olive trees line the perimeter of the side yard, which also features space for seating and a swing set in the back corner.

Near the swing set, several raised vegetable beds are located alongside a storage shed.

A built-in office nook sits opposite the kitchen island.

A sunlit principal suite is located at the end of the hallway.
