Los Angeles Craftsman Homes for Sale
Search all Craftsman homes for sale in Los Angeles. Craftsman homes are known for their open floor plans and coziness due to a design emphasis on artisanship. The style emanated from the Arts & Crafts movement that began in Britain and took off in the United States between 1880 to 1920.
The movement was a reaction to the ornateness of architectural design during the Victorian Era. The new style would prioritize simplicity in style (clean lines) and naturalness in substance (materials used in construction).

Craftsman Home Interiors
Once inside, visitors and occupants are greeted with an open floor plan on the main level, wood floors, and exposed structural elements such as wood beams, braces, beams, joists, and rafters. Living room walls and the study often have built-in cabinets, bookcases, and benched window seats. Stone or brick are used for the fireplace and hearth.
Craftsman Home Exteriors
Craftsman homes are typically one or two stories. A dead giveaway that you are looking at a Craftsman home is their front or side facing gabled roofs, dormer windows, and overhanging eaves. The main level will have a wide front porch with support columns, either square or taped. The beefed-up chimney and foundation walls are typically stone or brick. Slats and wood shingles are widely used materials for siding, though stone or stucco are also used.
Craftsman Home Grounds
The landscaping around Craftsman homes should match the earth colors used on the exterior walls. Landscapers will often recommend Bowles' golden sedge, coral bells, foxglove, golden creeping Jenny, lilac, pansies, red-leaf Japanese barberry, roses, and spurge. Adding a well-placed koi pond is an especially nice touch, particularly for an Oriental Craftsman home.
