Sacramento | $875,000
A circa-1911 Craftsman house, with four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, on a 0.6-acre lot
This house is a block away from Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park, where costumed interpreters working on the grounds and in the main adobe structure demonstrate aspects of life in 1840s Sacramento. Today, the area is mostly residential, apart from Sutter General Hospital and the shops and restaurants clustered along the main avenues.
Size: 2,715 square feet
Price per square foot: $322
Indoors: From the street, steps lead up to a covered porch, where the original red door opens into an airy foyer with a bench set under one of the many leaded-glass windows in the home. Here, and throughout, the dark wood paneling typical of Craftsman houses has been painted white, to create a sense of brightness.
To the right is a living room that has light hardwood floors with an inlaid pattern in a contrasting shade and hand-forged light fixtures chosen to complement the style of the house.
Opposite the front door is a dining room with a white-painted coffered ceiling, wainscoting and built-in cabinetry with more leaded glass.
