This three-bedroom, two-bath Craftsman bungalow underwent a complete renovation in 2009, and it shows. From the color choices to the fireplace treatment in the nursery to the open layout, everything feels very intentional. In 2010, the owners converted the detached garage into living space with help from the crew from DIY Channel's "Mega Dens," which claims to create "over-the-top rec-room sanctuaries" using a "rock 'n roll approach to design." Judge for yourself how rock 'n roll the reclaimed garage is, but the exposed wooden beams, quirky lighting choice and attention-getting barn doors do make it an interesting space. Last sold for $231,700 in 2003, pre-renovations, the 1,970-square-foot home is now asking $449,000.
