If you really (really) wanted a covetable Spanish Revival home in Los Angeles' Los Feliz neighborhood, you might have to make some sacrifices to afford one. But if those concessions involved owning a house that had more in common with a landfill than a cozy abode, would you sign on the dotted line?
That's exactly what Hunter Kenihan, of house-flipping real estate firm , found when he walked into this place. A victim of severe neglect and a hoarder homeowner, the space had fallen into a tragic state of disrepair — it was completely covered in garbage, and the structure was so unsound that a bathtub had fallen through the deteriorated floor into the basement.

But thanks to a restoration miracle (or, you know, a really good contractor), this home is now stunning and serene — and totally cleaned up. We know what you're thinking: pictures, or it didn't happen. Luckily, since the home is now , the real estate listing offers tons of stunning visual proof.
The rotted ceilings were restored to their original arched perfection, and look especially airy coated in a crisp white paint. Black and aqua trim highlights the windows' elegant curves, and streamlined mid-century decor puts the home's messy past out of your mind (we're especially smitten with the deep teal kitchen cabinets).
The flippers purchased the house for just $200,000, but now they're asking $929,000 — yowza! Take a look around:
