This whole home remodel and second story addition located in the Ocean Beach community of San Diego started out as a traditional 858 square foot beach bungalow with two bedrooms and one bathroom. When the owners purchased the home, they knew they immediately wanted to significantly increase their living space and wanted to find a way to maximize the use of their lot without having to go through the extensive Coastal Commission permitting process.
Fans of California Spanish design, the final concept expanded their living space to 3574 square feet including a first and second story addition, 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, and a rooftop patio. The main living area of the first floor features an open concept design and is flooded with natural light through the addition of large windows throughout. A large kitchen with distinctive tile and wood inlay floors and other unique design details perfectly reflect the Spanish theme while top of the line appliances, beautiful stone countertops, and a large island provide the perfect space for family meals and entertaining friends.
Off of the kitchen, a Fleetwood pocket door system spans the length of the wall, opening up completely to the relaxing outdoor living room that features a cozy fireplace and conversation area. Special attention was also paid to the family’s furry friends, with a large custom dog run constructed along the side of the home. The addition of a pool, outdoor dining area, firepit and beautiful hardscaping completed this dream home by the beach.
