Houzz TV: 1960s Teardown Now a Bright and Airy Modern Farmhouse

After their three kids moved away to attend college, Olga and Eric Dean felt that their sprawling ranch house in North Tustin, California, was just too much house. To be closer to their children and the beach, they sold the house, moved into a rental property in nearby Costa Mesa and began looking for a house to fit their pared-down lifestyle. They found a 1960s home that suited their needs but required major attention. So they assembled a design and construction team to make sense of the chopped-up layout that had given the laundry room and powder room the best views in the house.

Architect Denis La Roche reconfigured the floor plan and worked with general contractor Jason Adams to raise the roof and add lots of windows to create a bright and airy modern-farmhouse-style home that feels more connected to its large backyard.

This is my dream home when I retire. Just love the layout and all of the materials used throughout the house. The kitchen and pantry design is amazingly functional. In addition, the best is the inside outside patio door system. Simply wow...last but not least the master bathroom; OMG... love love the materials, the woods, the floors and hardware... the architect and contractor was able to take your vision and made it into a long live reality. Fantastic partnership. Enjoy your home with your loved ones as it’s so inviting and warm.

Beautifully done. Always seems scary to me to take on a big project like this with all the war stories I hear and have experienced with contractors on smaller projects. I guess its all in the "homework"

I would be interested in the cost of the remodel without furniture since there are so many ‘60s ranch houses that haven’t been touched. It would help greatly since I’m looking at houses and that is all I see.

Simplistic beauty. Doesn't look like those ones where they appear to be trying too hard to achieve a look. In this one it just exists, which is really nice. Totally agree with the fellow that the best place to spend money is in the door systems and windows, versus the decor, as they allow you to fulfill the style of living. In this case they bring the outdoors in, which always makes for quality living. Great job.

A bit late to comment on the November post, but for the person interested in where the living room rug is from, it's Pottery Barn.

The house looks beautiful.
I have a couple quick question about the kitchen island pendants. How wide are the pendants? How did you decide the height above countertop?
