Built in the early 1900s, this Highland Park bungalow retains many of its Craftsman-style details. Box-beam ceilings, built-in cabinetry, window details and the extensive use of wood in the interiors maintain a period vibe. The backyard is planted with plum, nectarine, pomegranate and avocado trees.
