    The exterior of this house is one of the very coolest Craftsman I have ever seen. A little bit of Asian pagoda influence. So I was a bit disappointed by the interior. Still some very nice features like dining room built ins, but nothing as super cool as the outside.

      some of the interior beauty i feel is disguised by the lack of staging and non-period light fixtures. Japanese-influenced craftmsans are one of my favorites, and this is lovely example.

        I live in the suburbs on Mobile, Alabama, and there are parts of the city where you can close your eyes, throw a quarter, and you are guaranteed hit a Craftsman. I tend to pass them by because I’m sort of overly used to them, but the outside of this one is definitely the coolest one I’ve seen. I also agree that the inside is more interesting than it first appears. Some of the built in’s especially caught my attention. This one is a sleeper. In the right hands it could be a knock out. I really kind of love this one.

    Love the bath tub and many of the features hidden by a well lived life by the current owners. The kitchen cabinets are wonderful as well. It’s lovely home indeed and the Japanese pull is strong. Kirei desu ne!
