As ridiculously overheated and competitive as the Los Angeles real estate market is, it still can't be all that easy to find a buyer willing to fork over almost half a million simoleons for a 360-square-foot cottage. But it's perhaps even more rare to come across a listing description that really stands out from the crowd. So hats off to the romantic soul who penned the copy for this itty-bitty 1920s bungalow in Elysian Heights, presented in full below:
Aug. 15th, 1999 NYC is where my life truly began. That's when and where I met the love of my life and the mother of my children. We all have those magical places and moments that define who we are and who we will become. 2374 Landa has that magic, that aura, that energy. It hits you the moment you step through its vibrant orange gate. You haven't even reached the front door, but you're home. It's the oasis you've been searching for: lush, quiet. You can see your future: friends old & new filling the garden with laughter, spreading across Landa's generous deck and meandering in and out of her french doors. Flash! They're gone. It's just you and that person that will be the love of your life, laughing in the kitchen, talking over dinner, huddling together on the deck on a perfect LA night whispering your hopes and dreams to the lights that sparkle in the distant hills. 2374 Landa is your magical place, your moment, your home. Who will you become? For those obsessed with prosaic, quotidian details, the one-bedroom, one-bath cottage is situated on a 2,200-square-foot lot on a staircase-accessed street and is listed with an asking price of $449,000.
