Timeless Charm: Three Craftsman-Style Homes

These Craftsman-style homes capture the warm, welcoming spirit of early-20th-century America with their natural materials, hand-wrought details, artisanal character, and organic palettes.

Historic Hollywood Charm

JoAnna Hennessy | Sotheby’s International Realty – Brentwood Brokerage

Dating to 1912 and painstakingly updated and augmented, this five-bedroom Craftsman-style residence provides a reminder of an enchanting bygone era. Its historic character is readily apparent in an iconic façade with storybook detailing, richly hued walnut floors, vintage windows and French doors, and period cabinetry and shelving; while museum-quality lighting, appliances, and baths are stylishly modern. The home is surrounded by lush landscaping, mature fruit trees, garden beds, and a pool on a private corner lot at the base of the Hollywood Hills.

A Piece of Pasadena History

 Mark Ogden | Sotheby’s International Realty – Pasadena Brokerage

Enveloped by lush, flourishing greenery near Brookside Park and the legendary Rose Bowl, this unique three-bedroom Pasadena home combines portions of an 1898 Craftsman residence and a 1950s addition. Eye-catching late-19th-century elements—including a low-pitched roof with exposed beams, a generous front porch, rugged woodwork and stonework, ornate leaded and stained glass, diamond-paned windows, and stately carved and coffered ceilings—harmonize with a pleasingly minimalist midcentury aesthetic. The property also includes inviting patio areas and a pool. 

Southern California Craftsman Compound

 Taryn Martin | Sotheby’s International Realty – Montecito – Coast Village Road Brokerage

In one of Santa Barbara’s most desirable neighborhoods, this gem was built in 1890 and represents a rare opportunity to own a piece of Southern California history. A wide, welcoming front porch; delightfully colorful window trim; warmly hued original hardwood floors; and eye-catching ceiling beams are among the lovely period details. The estate is a legal triplex, consisting of a 1,515-square-foot main residence and two additional one-bedroom apartments or guest quarters with private yards.
