Inside the home, the living room sits at the front of the south side of the home, overlooking the front patio area.

The updated kitchen sits adjacent to the dining room at the rear of the home, and features smooth-faced white laminate cabinets, composite counters and mosaic backsplashes. A family room addition has been tacked onto the rear of the home, and steps down from the main level of the home, and has been finished with an open beamed wood ceiling similar to that found in the rest of the home.

The backyard consists mainly of a two-level deck maximizing views of Stevenson Canyon. Much of the rear yard area is downward sloping hillside with natural terrain. Clear railings at the edge of the deck help give an open feel to the adjacent canyon, and a small patch of turf sits near the north side of the yard.
