This 1925 Arts and Crafts house is wonderfully preserved and, in a few places, carefully updated.
Fronted by a spacious L-shaped porch and a handsome brick facade, the Monrovia house holds its original oak floors, original molding, French doors, a Batchelder fireplace, nine-foot-tall coved ceilings, and leaded glass lamps.
New electrical, copper plumbing, and ductwork for the air conditioning have been added. The house’s two bathrooms have also been thoroughly remodeled.
The house also holds a large, carpeted basement with a sink. The space is currently in use as a craft room, but could be transformed into an additional living space, as the listing notes.
The roughly 2,100-square-foot house sits on a 10,491-square-foot lot. The ample grounds include fruit trees, a covered rear patio, and a detached garage.
