This picture-perfect Airplane Craftsman bungalow sits on nearly half an acre on a tree-lined street in Mar Vista. Built in 1915, the residence is distinguished by a low-pitched gable roof, a pop-up second floor and overhanging eaves that give the impression of airplane wings. The period charm continues inside with hardwood floors, large picture windows and handsome box beam ceilings.
