Stepping inside the front door, you can see straight down the hallway and through to the main living area of the home.

At the end of the hallway is the living room that has large floor-to-ceiling black framed windows (and a door) that flood the room with natural light and provide a view of the courtyard.

In the courtyard, a high wall and black fence provide privacy from the neighbors. A built-in bench and a couple of outdoor chairs create spaces to relax, and built-in planters and a wall of potted plants add a touch of nature.

Back inside, the living room opens up to the dining area and kitchen.

A wood shelf lines up with the bench in the courtyard, while a built-in fireplace and with brick details, as well as a void for wood storage sit flush with the cabinets that lead into the kitchen.

The light wood dining table and chairs, combined with the flooring, add a sense of warmth to the mostly white interior.

In the kitchen, minimalist white cabinets and white tiles match the white island, and keep the space bright and airy.

Located off the hallway is a bedroom. Simple cabinets that match the kitchen and blend into the wall have been included, while an original fireplace has been kept as a design element.

There’s also a study that’s been designed to have the desk sit in front of the windows to take advantage of the light.
