Another Cute Craftsman Hits the Market in Highland Park

Could it be – A fancy little Craftsman new to the market in Highland Park with a less-than-fancy price-tag? Well hello, old friend.

5675 Ash St – Highland Park, $635,000 3bd, 1.25ba, and 1,352 lovely square feet

Homes of this age come in all shapes and sizes but too frequently are either in major disrepair or have been flipped cheaply with less-than-enticing updates. This one lands somewhere in the middle – I’m not thrilled that much of the wood wainscoting has been painted white (yet, it works well in this home) and that all-white kitchen addition needs a little more character BUT there are also great hardwoods, original windows and tons of built-ins on a lovely private lot with a nicely-sized flat backyard. Did I mention there’s central A/C, a retro-fitted foundation, updated electrical, and a new sewage line?

Tour this home in person before it’s gone – contact me this week for a viewing!

Four Great California Craftsman Homes Under $700k

1025 East Rio Grande Street in Pasadena
3bd, 1.5ba, 1,606 square feet and a 6,853 lot size. Built in 1921, this Craftsman sits on a corner lot and is asking $685,000.

Listing provided courtesy of Cariy Hernandez,  Keller Williams Realty. 

6160 YORK in HIGHLAND PARK
With 3bd, 1.5ba in the main house and an additional bed and full bath (plus a kitchenette) in the guest house, you’ve got plenty of room to spread out. 1,596 square feet and asking $675,000

Ok lets preface this one below by saying yes I am aware it is located on extremely busy York Blvd. That is likely why it is priced the way it is. It sits high up off the street which would hopefully help with some of the noise. Either way – super cute character details, space, and a great neighborhood for the price.

This 1920 Craftsman Bungalow has 1,228 square feet and 2bd and 1ba in the main house, plus an additional bathroom in the detached casita. Sitting on a 6,308 square foot corner lot, this home is asking $629,000.

Run Don’t Skip to This Highland Park Flip

Flips are a dime a dozen these days, but finding a flip under $700k that has managed to retain some character or soul can be a bit of a challenge so its pretty rare that one gets me as excited as 5724 Buchanan St in Highland Park. Great location (2 blocks off York Blvd), good lot size, and decent curb appeal – although the inside of the home is where it really shines. Click through the slideshow below for details:

If you’d like to tour this home in person contact me right away as offers are being reviewed this week and it will be gone gone gone.
