Sponsored Post: ReInhabit restores vintage Atwater home for the present

Open House: Saturday & Sunday, Oct. 19 & 20 from 2 pm – 5 pm

New from ReInhabit: a look from the past, restored for the present. The design+build firm acquired this traditional style home, which was built in 1941, on a quiet street in Atwater Village. Offering classic L.A. charm in a great location, it was the kind of house that someone might slap some paint onto for a quick flip. But ReInhabit has never taken the easy route. The team found that the original kitchen, bathroom and fixtures of 3147 Atwater Avenue were virtually untouched, altered only by 70-plus years of wear. It was like a time capsule, down to the wallpaper, built-in ironing board, even the original draperies.

For ReInhabit this presented both a challenge and an opportunity, not to dramatically alter this home but to rejuvenate it. Paying every respect to this beautiful relic of L.A.’s past, ReInhabit is proud to present the result of their painstaking effort, offered for sale exclusively by Tracy Do Real Estate.

To the home’s original pristine cabinetry, bathroom tile, and pocket doors, ReInhabit has applied their magic. Everything works to the point where it feels “like new.” The biggest alteration to the residence is the second bathroom that has been added, along with a walk-in closet off the Master Bedroom and “secret” laundry nook that’s as ingenious as it is practical. The garage has been re-purposed to become a versatile space for work, play or entertaining. It flows beautifully to a back yard complete with two decks and drought-tolerant landscaping, an ideal environment for socializing or quiet time.

ReInhabit has built a reputation for creativity, craftsmanship, and also for the use of salvage pieces that are their signature. Here the imported vintage elements include reclaimed doors, windows and lighting fixtures, which mesh perfectly with new flooring surfaces of wood and Marmoleum. Upgrades include plumbing, electrical, and a new heating and air conditioning system. 3147 Atwater Avenue: a functional modern residence that feels lifted from another place and time.
