This cute Van Nuys residence may not be turnkey, but there sure is a lot of potential inside the bright, two-bedroom house.
On a corner lot alongside a cul-de-sac, the 1,465-square-foot house has a very little-house-in-the-suburbs look from the curb (appropriate!). Pass through the front door to enter the sunny living room, with large windows and a brick fireplace.
The wood floors need to be restored, but once they are, you’ll be treated to gleaming floors throughout, as they’re featured in much of the house, including both bedrooms.
Next to the living room is a galley-style kitchen with an eat-in area and a dining room with ceilings that appear to be shiplap or tongue and groove wood.
The house holds two bathrooms that could use some updating, as well as a spacious bonus room that may or may not be permitted.
Beyond the bonus room, there’s a large, blank-slate backyard that could use a landscaping update but has plenty of space for parties. (The lot measures 6,535 square feet in total.)
The house is listed for $499,000.
