Here's a solid example of how to update a Craftsman tastefully. This big, beautiful 1906 specimen in South Pasadena has a great, modern kitchen with granite counters and a huge farmhouse sink, and a luxurious new master bathroom with a large soaking tub. Yet all the cool turn-of-the-century charm—built-in bookshelves and sideboard, that trademark generous porch—is still there, as homey and charming as ever. Just shy of 2,500 square feet, the residence has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a two-car garage in the spacious backyard. The asking price is $1.399 million.
