The 1929 Lombardi House underwent a interior remodel in 2009 and is now a blend of historic design and modern trends.
The home, owned by husband and wife Robert Farkas and Jeri Jones, is one of four in northwest Glendale on the 53rd annual Hoover Tour of Homes. The tour is presented by the Hoover High School Parent Teacher Student Assn. and proceeds provide scholarship funds for Hoover students.
Farkas and Jones worked with interior designer Michael Berman, who has his own line of limestone and furniture, and designer Laurie Haefele assisted on the kitchen.
"Michael brought in art deco furnishing because that's the time the house was built — in 1929," Farkas said. "The home is a Spanish Colonial Revival. It's a historical property, and the original owner was Angela Lombardi."
The cork floor in the kitchen was replaced with a stained oak similar to the cabinetry throughout the house, Farkas said. They also changed the location of several doors to create a succession of arched doors that allows a view from one end of the house to the other.
