This Monrovia house built in 1924 last sold in August, and is now nearly unrecognizable. The former definite fixer-upper has received a serious overhaul, transforming it into a Spanish Revival-style dream with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. White walls, Saltillo tiles, and the original hardwood floors are joined by butcher-block countertops, remodeled bathrooms, new cabinets and appliances in the redone kitchen, and a cool barn boor separating the master bedroom from its en suite bathroom. Last sold for $550,000, the 1,285-square-foot house is now listed for $699,000.
