One complaint you sometimes hear people make about Craftsman homes is that they’re “dark” or “gloomy.” No one could ever say that about this 1907 bungalow in Highland Park—it’s a little package of sunshine.

Located high atop an arroyo-stone-bordered stairway, the cottage does offer some shade on its deep front porch. But inside, the copious leaded-glass windows let plenty of light in, offsetting the oak floors, box beam ceilings, paneled walls, and built-in cabinetry.

Along with its open-plan living/dining room, the 1,239-square-foot bungalow has three bedrooms, one bath, and a bright galley-style kitchen. Per the listing, there’s also a basement space for laundry and storage. As for the home’s exterior, in its sizable backyard, you’ll find an art studio/workshop as well as a variety of fruit-bearing trees, including plum, nectarine, pomegranate, and avocado.

Last sold in 2002 for $195,000, it’s now asking $629,000. Open house is scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
