In the Northeast LA neighborhood of Montecito Heights, this approximately 1,000-square-foot house dates to 1923 but looks much younger, thanks to some careful upgrades. The residence features some original light fixtures and molding, coved ceilings, and hardwood floors, as well as an updated kitchen with marble counters and a farmhouse sink.
The two-bedroom dwelling has 1.5 bathrooms, plus a master bedroom that opens out to the rear yard and ample covered patio via a set of French doors. The patio shares the yard with a converted garage that serves as music studio, and it still has enough space for some grass.
This sweet little house last sold in 2012 for $465,000. It’s now listed for $690,000.
