A charming two-bedroom home in Long Beach, Calif. has now reached the end of a three-year revamp and is ready to welcome its new owners.
The 1920s Spanish bungalow has tens of thousands of followers on Instagram...
who have followed its transformation since Laura Genevieve and husband Jonathan Stradler bought the property in 2018.
Jonathan Strader (the restaurateur behind Hatchet Hall and Old Man Bar) and his jewelry designer wife, Laura Genevieve, paid only $555,000 for the property in 2018.
They fully revamped it, documenting every step of the process on Instagram, where the Blanco Bungalow garnered well over 40,000 followers.
The two-bedroom, one-bath retreat was extensively renovated to feature the home’s original redwood flooring, archways, hacienda bookshelves, and Spanish charm.
Inspired by the ocean and the desert, the residence now boasts muted tones, soft and comfortable furnishings, and a neutral palette hand-selected by Laura.
The kitchen is particularly inviting, and features custom shelves throughout.
But Laura Genevieve didn’t stop at transforming the property’s interiors.
She also worked her magic on the home’s lovely backyard, where she added maintenance-free turf, a fire pit, and a built-in sectional.
She also transformed the 2-car garage into a space meant for "mindful moments, artfulness, and afternoon chill.
But the space can be easily converted to fit its newest owner’s needs.
Combined, these wonderful additions make the property a picture-perfect home, one that’s fully earned its $1 million+ selling price.
