Arts and Crafts in Brightwood

Though this four-bedroom Brightwood home has a traditional Arts and Crafts structure, it looks like a recent renovation altered the layout a bit: the main floor is now a wide open space, with room for a living area and dining area bordered by a kitchen. The kitchen looks modern, with a subway tile back splash and an apron sink. Because it’s not a rowhouse, there are windows on all sides and the home is very bright.
