In the spring of 2010, I predicted that a 594 square foot cottage for sale on the Balboa Peninsula would be bulldozed to make way for a Mediterranean McMansion. The asking price for the 1957 property was $820K. I am thrilled to say I was wrong! The home at 306 Lindo Ave. has been refurbished and is now for sale for $849K.
Before: I liked the grey exterior with the red front door. But I appreciate how the new look with the cedar shingles and navy door has a nautical vibe. I'm glad the buyers kept the X details in the house's windows.
The kitchen features new Caesarstone countertops, new tile blacksplash, a new gas stovetop, a new stainless steel sink and appliances, new lighting and what appears to be a new stain on the existing cabinets. The footprint is the same. Privacy is increased with the addition of plantation shutters in the kitchen and throughout the house.
Before: The kitchen
Before: The bathroom wasn't horrid, but wasn't great.
