The Happy House

Our featured project in Southbay HOME’s April 2018 Issue is a 1964 ranch-style property in the Hill Section of Manhattan Beach that we completely remodeled down to the studs. By reworking the entire layout, we created an open floor plan that flows seamlessly to the private backyard through custom pocketing doors. Adding skylights, bay windows, dormers and vaulted ceilings created beautiful light throughout the home.

Waterleaf’s quintessential style touches every detail including the French white oakfloors, grasscloth wallpaper, custom built-ins, wainscotting, lighting, tile and other luxury finishes. Waterleaf also furnished and styled the entire home to complement the new aesthetics of the renovation. The new home owners nicknamed it “the happy house” because everything about it brings them joy.
