701 Hancock, El Cerrito

Our featured home today is another modest 1940s ranch that was overhauled by John Hans Ostwald in the late 50s. This one needs a bit of resuscitation to bring it back to its former glory, but it has loads of potential. Ostwald’s renovation was somewhat more limited here than was the case on Atlas with work restricted to the living room and kitchen, but the spaces he carved out there are beautifully detailed and a welcome improvement to an otherwise fairly standard ranch form.
