Betty Way, a very short side street just south of Sunset Boulevard, is lined with circa 1930 Spanish bungalows that were originally built for railroad workers.

What I admire most about this project is how well it maintains the integrity of the street’s character while simultaneously incorporating the very best of today’s construction materials and technology into its design.

 The windows used throughout the home are high efficiency Marvin fiberglass/wood frames with argon-glazed glass. And both the top and bottom windows pop out for easy cleaning.

 Two of the three bathrooms offer spa showers with rain heads and body sprays. The third bathroom offers a soaking tub with rain head shower. I particularly love the Grigio Limestone sink by Laura Kirar.

 Circular staircases are often narrow and clumsy to climb. This one, which leads to a finished lower level, is amply wide and beautifully crafted.
