Though an under-900-square-foot Atwater Village house may sound small, this one packs a lot of features inside its cozy interior. It has two ample bedrooms, including one (currently in use as an office, the listing photos suggest) that opens right into the shady yard. The long, lean kitchen, which has candy-apple red cabinets, is accented with Caesarstone counters and stainless steel appliances. (There's only one bathroom here, though.) While the little place is obviously updated, it still retains some of the features hoped for in a little house from 1930, thanks to coved ceilings, hardwood floors, and its ornamental fireplace. Last sold in 2010 for $442,500, it's now listed for $645,000.
