Before & After: c.1927 Tudor Revival Home in Beverly Hills, CA Transformed in Complete Modernization
703 N Palm Drive, Beverly Hills, California, United States, 90210
After selling in 2016 for $9,300,000, this c.1927 Tudor Revival home in Beverly Hills, California is back on the market for $14,995,000. The increase in price isn’t the only change. Following the sale, the entire 7,200 square foot home was modernized top to bottom. Changes included removing the original hardwood floors from the formal dining & living rooms to replace with European French White Oak flooring, painting over the beams and woodwork in the formal entrance, switching the spindle railing with an iron railing, updating the kitchen and bathrooms and softening the colour of the exterior brick. An old listing praised it as being lovingly restored with original details and woodwork crafted in a bygone era, while the current listing describes it as having a balance of classic and contemporary design. The change, shocking to historic home lovers, was likely an effort to attract a broader range of buyers. It’s currently on the market for $14,995,000.
