Hidden Potential host Jasmine Roth listed a renovate-and-sell project in Southern California recently. The cachet-wise Roth picked up the 716 sq. ft. one-and-one in the final days of winter. Three months of assessment, planning and execution of a dressy beach cottage concept and the condo unit in Huntington Beach is back on the market with an asking price of $575,000.
As it stands, the residence now features an accumulation of details that align with contemporary tastes and also offer a cohesive living style. Among the higher-end touches is the dramatically figured marble stone backsplash in the galley kitchen; natural-toned, flat-finished wide-plank hardwood in the living areas keeps things on the warm side of neutral. The tilework in the master bath is a highlight; the beige tones bring a bit of desert to the proceedings.
The covered patio is the property’s private exterior living area. Roth finished it with wicker and rattan, and an old blanket chest that looks like it was dragged down from an attic years ago to fill a void and became part and parcel of the laid-back landscape.
