Home of the Week: Celebrating a Craftsman classic in Angelino Heights


This Craftsman home in Angelino Heights dates to 1905 — as Theodore Roosevelt began his first full term as president. Extensively restored, the handsome two-story retains its 115-year-old millwork and an arched brick fireplace that creates a focal point in the living room. Newer updates are seen in the kitchen and bathrooms, where contemporary cabinetry and tilework pair with period fixtures and hardware.
