If you are searching for a Craftsman dream home in move-in condition, get ready to pay top dollar. Even low-priced Craftsman fixer uppers are getting hard to find, with home buyers competing against flippers and contractors. At $380,000, this 102-year-old Craftsman-style cottage in the flats of Lincoln Heights is not cheap. But while it appears that three-bedroom house at 2814 Darwin will need some work, the shingled home has managed to avoid being “stuccoed” as have many of the neighboring properties. Inside, there are original paneled doors, wood trim, built-in cabinets, columns and, under the teal green carpet, hardwood flooring, according to the Redfin listing. The sellers are playing up the home’s potential and location:
Close to school, transportation and USC Medical Center. This is perfect for a potential buyer who is creative and likes to get their personal touch.
