No expense has been spared in the renovation of this adorable 1922 Craftsman home just a short jaunt to the Marina and Cabrillo Beach.
Located in the quaint Point Fermin neighborhood, this 2 bedroom, 1 bath home has been restored to its original glory! Original wood siding, original windows (many with the original glass), original clawfoot bathtub, interior doors and more! This bright and sunny home shouts “charm” from the moment you arrive. Sit on the spacious front porch and say hello to your neighbors. The floor plan is open and airy with a large living room open to the brand new kitchen. The living room still has the original wainscot and plate rails. The kitchen features rich blue cabinets w/carrara-look quartz counters, farmhouse sink, custom backsplash and stainless appliances. Original built-ins are still present including the ironing board! The bedrooms are good sized with deep closets. The bathroom has been restored in painstaking detail to its original charm.
The home features copper plumbing, new electrical system, new central heat and air, tankless water heater. New roof in 2014. New irrigation system/sod lawn. The “garage”/workshop area has also been restored and has a new carriage style roll-up door and opener. No detail has been overlooked.
Take advantage of this opportunity to live near the ocean and be part of the San Pedro renaissance with the new San Pedro Public Market and waterfront redevelopment. You won’t want to miss this gem!
Post Sale Notes
This home had an extensive restoration/remodel coordinated by Karen Anderson & The Prestige Team. Project design, management and coordination were handled in-house by Karen Anderson, Realtor Broker based out of Rancho Palos Verdes and San Pedro.
Purchased as an investment by a long-term client, we were tasked with restoring the home for a new buyer. Our starting point was a tired old home that had been a long-time rental for the previous owner.
Since the outside of the home was covered in asbestos siding we had no idea what kind of shape the original siding was in. Once it was removed, we were relieved to discover that most of the siding was in excellent shape. Better yet, with plans to open up the front porch and eliminate the back-door enclosure, we had a decent amount of extra siding for any required patch work.
Underneath a very old and dirty carpet were some oak hardwood floors that were too far gone to salvage unfortunately. The kitchen was in remarkably good shape given its age, including the tile counter-top. In the end, we made the tough decision to gut those cabinets, including the built-ins that along the adjoining living room wall. That was one of the tougher decisions that were made on the project, but it definitely paid off!
Removing the cabinets and built-ins in the living room allowed us to open up the wall to join the living room and kitchen/dining area. The end result was a more open floorplan, making the 864 sq. ft. seem larger and brighter.

“Having an emotional moment watching the last of the furniture being removed from this beautiful house in #pointfermin I feel like I’m leaving a piece of my soul behind here after a six month remodel in which everything was painstakingly restored. This was a labor of love for sure and I hope the new owners will love it as much as I do.”
