This incredibly cute, under-700-square-foot little cottage is located down the street from the wonderful South Pasadena library. Built in 1926, the little house has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and a "bonus room" that leads out into the unexpectedly roomy backyard. The lot is just over 2,000 square feet, and that space is put to good use—just get a load of that rad hot tub. Inside, hardwood floors run through the house, and there is air conditioning. The kitchen is a little bit cozy, but there's plenty of storage space, so at least things are out of the way. Last sold all the way back in 1991 for just $197,000, it's now asking $488,000.
