There are “Craftsman” homes on the market at all times it seems, though most are modern reproductions of the Arts and Crafts homes popular in the United States from the late 19th century through the 1930s. This Clarksville home, built in 1920, appears to be the real deal, at least originally. It has been remodeled since then, of course, but it looks as if great pains were taken to preserve original features or replicate them faithfully.
The 1,674-square-foot home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and has a big, welcoming front porch typical of bungalows of the period. Inside is an abundance of period-style wainscoting, trim and baseboards, doors and windows (including transoms), built-ins and wood floors.
A large deck has been added on the back of the one-story home, which overlooks a gently sloped back yard. The fenced yard also has extensive landscaping and boxes for raised garden beds. There is a dedicated parking spot behind the house as well.
A media room has sliding, glass-paned doors, additional period doors and windows, and some boss wallpaper.
The home has a formal dining room as well as a breakfast nook in the remodeled kitchen.
Bedrooms are bright and sunny, and bathrooms mix vintage and contemporary features.
A sunny sitting area between the kitchen and one of the home’s bedrooms opens on to the backyard deck. The fenced yard has drought-friendly landscaping and raised garden beds.
The home also has a 240-square-foot, climate-controlled addition with a laundry room, a gym, and storage space.
