Though it's just under 800 square feet, this renovated 1921 "writer's bungalow" is endowed with a more open, airy feeling than might be expected thanks to its vaulted ceilings, skylights, and French windows. (The light oak floors that run through the interior don't hurt either.) In the long, lean kitchen, the house's custom cabinets and marble counters stand out. Less conspicuous are the cozy cottage's in-wall speakers and central air-conditioning (not always a given in older houses).
Though the lot isn't huge, there's still room in the rear for a bit of grass and a patio table, and it's nice and secluded back there: the house is surrounded by giant, leafy hedges and gated. The only potential disadvantage to this little cottage is that the two-bedroom residences only has one bathroom. Last sold for $307,000 back in 2003, according to public records, its now asking $699,000.
