“Home as Art” is an expression that is a bit overused, I think. But if there’s ever been a company whose remodeled homes can be described this way, it’s Re-Inhabit.

Built in 1925, this Spanish style home in Beachwood Canyon features all the great elements that are true to its heritage, such as coved ceilings, wrought iron, terra cotta tiles and beautiful terraces.
