Late last year, this house in Fairfax had a different address and a shroud of palm trees surrounding it, hiding who knows what. Previously listed as 451 S. Crescent Heights, the house sold for $920,000 in December—$55,000 below asking. Now it's back and it's been completely overhauled. Not only has the property emerged from it's cloak of trees, it's got new appliances throughout, dual master bedrooms with their own patios, double-paned windows, and a "large creative work/play" studio over the two-car garage. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom residence/former ugly duckling is asking $1.495 million.
