Los Angeles County

This once-beautiful Tudor house fell into disrepair under its owner’s hoarding of rubbish and, depending on various accounts, 40 to 80 cats. The original builder’s niece, married at the property in 1972, burst into tears when she saw the extent of its demise. But the home’s outstanding original craftsmanship made it one of CRG’s more notable “before and after” projects and the property sale ended up covering its owner’s living costs.
