Former U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher lost his longtime seat representing his Orange County district in 2018. After three decades in Congress, the Republican stalwart is also leaving his Costa Mesa, CA, home.

The remodel also changed the floor plan to include a library and an office. The main level features a living room and formal dining room. The updated kitchen has custom cabinetry, granite countertops, and high-end appliances.
