It’s time for another Arts and Crafts-era gem from Pasadena, California. This time, the hot new item on the market is an 1917 residence blending the quaint appeal of an English Cotswold cottage with the detailed, creative expression of Craftsman homes. Designed and built by brothers Arthur and Alfred Heineman for a "wealthy widow, " Lydia C. Edmands, the six-bedroom house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.

From the rolled-roof edges to the arched storybook front door to the interior’s beautiful wood paneling, staircase, and large Batchelder fireplace, the 6,319-square-foot home dazzles with architectural details. Last sold in 2014 for $4,239,500, the house now returns positively refreshed for $4,780,000, and shows off glorious wood flooring in the main living areas instead of the humdrum carpeting seen in old listing photos.

Sitting on 0.62 acres, the property also includes a pool, guesthouse, historic garage, and a deep, lush front lawn.
