This “classic” Craftsman house sits on a hill at the end of a cul-de-sac in sought-after Eagle Rock. With its overhanging eaves and front porch and columns, this textbook bungalow is clear-cut example of the style in a neighborhood with many charming early 20th century houses.

The two-bedroom, one-bath residence was built in 1922, and still has its original windows and hardwood floors. Built-ins throughout the house give it an added hint of history.

A standout feature is the kitchen, which is a warm, buttery yellow with orange tile counters and backsplash and a breakfast nook. A sturdy white Wedgewood stove and oven anchors the kitchen.

Both the kitchen and dining room open out to the backyard, a long, grassy space with fruit trees, lavender, bougainvillea, and roses. The backyard also holds a detached one-car garage with laundry hook-ups.

5316 Sierra Villa Drive is close to the 134 and 2 freeways, Colorado Boulevard’s shops, and the Eagle Rock Plaza mall. It’s listed for $749,000 with Eugene Ridenour and Kurt Wisner of Compass.

Hardwood floors, plenty of windows, and a fireplace make this living room a delightful space to gather.
