Superior Home Builders

6569 Cleomoore Avenue, West Hills, CA 91307 

Lush green spaces and stone paths surround the Tuscan yellow walls and terracotta roof of this Mediterranean-style home in Valley Village. Trellised stone-paved patio areas and Spanish tiled steps bridge them to the interior, which gets a lot of light through the broad black-framed windows and French doors. An antique wooden door and a tiered fountain by an arched window add rustic charm to the structure.

President and CEO Ron Azulay leads Superior Home Builders, the team behind this home. The firm has built and remodeled homes throughout the Los Angeles metro area since 2004. Azulay works directly with his team and the client, recommending the best materials and communicating daily progress.

Nico Designs now also builds Net Zero and Passive House energy-efficient buildings. 

The arched details continue in the interior of this modern Tuscan-style home. Classic white pillars hold up these passageways between the first-floor spaces. A traditional fireplace anchors the formal living room, which flows into a five-seater round table dining area lit by a glass chandelier at the center of the coffered ceiling. A more casual family room sits beneath white wood-beamed shiplap ceilings, warmed by a beige marble slab fireplace. Adjacent to the space—through a wider trimmed opening—is the dark wood-cabinet L-shaped kitchen, with a white quartz-top center island and prep spaces. French doors open to the covered deck by the backyard. A gold wrought metal-railed staircase leads up to the second floor, which extends to an open upper deck lounge area with great views of Huntington Beach.

The firm built this two-story modern home with a pristine white façade accentuated by black metal frames around the windows and railings on the second-floor balconies. Inside, the common paces are arranged in a flowing layout. A ribbon fireplace anchors the living room. A similar fireplace is embedded onto the half-wall that marks off the ten-seater dining room and white-cabinet kitchen. Accordion doors open to the trellised patio. Stainless steel cable-railed floating stairs lead up to the second floor, where an open upper deck overlooks the backyard pool. 

Precision Construction Co.

7321 Casaba Avenue, Winnetka, CA 91306 

Artful landscaping lines the paved walkway up the stone-clad arched main entry to this modern farmhouse home. Lamps and spotlights illuminate the rest of the façade, which features tall windows with wooden side-shutters beneath the low-pitched and varied roofline topped by a chimney. 

Construction has been in CEO Ron Bahat’s family for many years. Bahat decided to get his own contractor’s license at an early age after seeing the substandard, poor-quality work of others in the industry delivered at exorbitant prices. He then founded Precision Construction, the firm behind this home, in 2001. The firm has since built over 250 projects large and small throughout the San Fernando Valley. Precision provides new construction, additions, and kitchen and bath remodel projects, as well as masonry, electrical, plumbing, flooring, and roofing work.

The sprawling backyard area is as much a part of this home as its main structure. Teal-framed sliding doors connect the interior to the covered deck. Spanish tiles line the steps down to the open space, where there are spots to lounge and get some fresh air. The trellised and metal-railed second-floor balcony looks out upon a space that enjoys beautiful views. It’s easy to see that Executive Design and Construction specializes in hillside construction.

Vahik Tatoosi has led the firm since its establishment in 2000, and the firm has earned a strong reputation among clients in the Los Angeles area for the spot-on work the team delivers via good communication, honesty, and professionalism.

Rich details continue behind the white-walled and stone-clad façade of this Woodland Hills home. The geometric accent light hanging from the porch finds its counterpart right behind the sidelight door in a spherical chandelier illuminating the entryway. A herringbone pattern on the floor leads you inside. A similar pattern appears in the walls of the quartz-top double vanity master bath. Wooden drawers and cabinets offer storage room below the undermount sinks next to the knee walls that support the glass door of the rainshower, where blue tiling lines a shower niche on the other side.

This contemporary Craftsman home opens to a bright wood-beamed great room. A limestone fireplace wall anchors the living room, with the flat screen mounted atop the wooden mantel. Blue and white tile backsplash lines the wall behind the range and the gray wood cabinets. A black quartz-top island offers some eat-in space, while more space to dine sits towards the right in the form of the corner breakfast nook.
