There's a lot going on at this nearly-5,000-square-foot lot in gentrifying Elysian Valley. The main house, a colorful 660-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bathroom bungalow, is up front, but behind it is a pool, a guest unit with a full bathroom, a "mini artist studio," parking for three cars, and a garage "for your cafe racers, Vespas, Lambrettas, Puchs or fixees." The listing hits on the proximity to the LA River bike path, but spends zero time addressing why there's a triangular window in the wall between the living area and the kitchen. The property's asking $499,000.
