↑ This three-bedroom, Spanish-style house in Leimert Park is absolutely delightful. It features arched entryways, hardwood floors, built-ins, a fireplace, and formal dining room, plus two charming tiled bathrooms. The outdoor space is enviable, too. There’s a front porch, a detached garage that has been converted to a studio with wood beamed ceilings, and drought tolerant landscaping. The asking price? $725,000.
↑ Just northwest of the Venice and Sawtelle intersection in Mar Vista lies this bright, one-bedroom house built in 1957. At 1,012 square feet, it’s on the smaller side and it could use some updates, but the $715,000 price tag is moderate for the Westside. The property has been under the same ownership since 1975—when it sold for $26,500.

It features floor-to-ceiling windows, slatted wood screens that warm up the space, and a kitchen with a pretty glass tile back splash. Located in walking distance to Whole Foods, the 1,066-square-foot unit is asking $730,000 with monthly HOA dues of $816.
↑ Over in Boyle Heights, $725,000 will buy you a spacious lot with a charming house that’s been divided into two units, each with two bedrooms and one bath. They share an ample porch and a yard full of potential. One of the units holds a brick fireplace and a kitchen with vintage yellow cabinets.
