​​​​​​​Updated Vintage Hollywood: Expertise and Passion Make a Difference

​​​​​​​We began working with Stephen and John, the eventual buyers of this property on Creston Dr, about a year after they had relocated from New York City, temporarily residing in a Los Feliz rental. They sought a home in the Hollywood Hills, west to east, with a view, and unlike most buyers, wanted a fixer-upper. This home had been owned by a Hollywood set-designer for about 60 years. It, along with each of its 2 neighbors, were originally built in the late 1920s by one of the studios to serve as “temporary” housing for movie stars. This explains the design of the houses — huge vaulted Living Room, Dining Room for major dinner parties, and just two big Bedrooms upstairs. But plenty of DRAMA!

The house needed a major rehab, which we helped them with. It was a true pleasure, in part, because Stephen and John have impeccable taste. A favorite feature of the house, which we suggested to them, was a tiled pyramidal ceiling in the Kitchen. The whole house was redone — Kitchen, Baths, systems. They are intrepid, and turned a Hollywood antiquity into a grand house fit for today, without ruining any of its original style.

A Note from the Clients

“Craig & David Homes acted as our Buyer’s Agent during the search and purchase of our house, a 1920s Spanish Colonial Revival fixer in the Hollywood Hills. We choose to work with them because of their passion for and market knowledge of historic houses in Los Angeles. They expertly guided us through the process and gleaned important information from listing agents for properties of particular interest. Once we decided to make an offer, Craig and David worked tirelessly to negotiate the deal to our best advantage. The process of inspections was also seamless, and provided additional information with which to secure the best possible price.”

“Since we developed a strong rapport during the search for our property, it seemed like a natural fit to work with them on the renovation, especially given their experience in this area. Although we had a clear vision for the work we wanted to do, Craig and David guided us through the challenging process with humor and perseverance, and offered brilliant design suggestions. We could not more highly recommend this incredible team to anyone wanting to purchase or renovate a house in L.A.”
