Key Residential took on a full remodel of a 90-year-old home and the results are fabulous!

We’re back with another look at the creative problem-solving that Candy’s Dirt Approved Builder Key Residential put in to practice for a home built in 1929. The old brick colonial had undergone multiple renovations during its lifetime and had too much of a piecemeal layout after all the disparate projects.

The goal? To create a cohesive living space with modern upgrades on the interior and upgrade the exterior so it meets the same standards as the revamped interior.

The result? A sophisticated airy plan with vintage finishes that honor the 1920s era of the original home.

If you think you’ve seen Stacey Warnix’s home at 6934 Hammond Ave. before, you’re not having deja vu. Our own Cassie Evans featured this home as an off-market listing just weeks ago. This five-bedroom, three-bath renovated Tudor is in one of the mos picturesque areas of Hollywood Heights and has such fabulous finish-out thanks to Warnix’s own superb tastes.

While she absolutely adores this home, Warnix is ready for a fresh start in a new house. After a previous offer fell through due to financing woes, she’s putting this beauty on MLS hoping to get more bites. Surely, buyers will love some of the creative uses of space in this lovely abode, and the second floor, a converted attic, is just so cozy and chic.

In fact, she’s had so much interest in this remodel that Warnix is planning to launch her own firm that will do upscale renovations. To get a sample of her style, don’t miss the Hollywood Santa Monica Neighborhood Association Home Tour April 25-26, where you can tour Warnix’s home as well as several other gorgeous Hollywood Heights houses. Hurry and buy your tickets today!
