Returning to the market in Highland Park is this sweet, 113-year-old bungalow that won a preservation award from the Highland Park Heritage Trust in 2009.

The seller purchased the home 14 years ago from the Takano family, for whom the dwelling is named. According to real estate agent Anna Morrissey, the Takano family was interned in Arizona during WWII, but was able to keep the house because a friend looked after it and ensured the property taxes were paid.

When the Takanos were released, “they were able to come back here,” she says. “And because so many of their family members and relatives were not able to keep their homes, the Takanos were able to give them a place to stay while they were getting back on their feet.”

In its 1,432 square feet, the 1905-built home holds three bedrooms and one bath. A blend of Victorian and Craftsman styles, it features charming original details, including Douglas fir floors, double-hung windows, a built-in china cabinet with leaded glass detail, built-in window seating, and pocket doors.

The Mills Act property, last sold for $375,000 in 2004, is now asking $750,000.
