We've all seen the tragedy of a property owner gutting the interior of venerable home to make it more "open" or "modern," and, in the process, stripping out everything that gave it character in the first place.
Not so with this 1921 property for sale in the Monte Vista Historic District for $539,000. The Craftsman-style home is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, which recognized its owners' efforts to preserve the original architectural details.
From pillared built-in bookshelves and a window-side bench seat to gorgeous hardwood floors, those details make this three-bedroom, two-bath house look like something from another era because ... well, it is. The classic charm also extends to the kitchen, including glass-front upper cabinets and gorgeous cobalt blue tile countertops.
