Located in the slim valley between Montecito Heights and Lincoln Heights (technically the small Happy Valley neighborhood), this one-bedroom bungalow is spread out across two lots measuring a combined 8,100 square feet.

From its lush perch on a cul-de-sac, the main residence house appears to offer privacy and the feeling of being in a treehouse.

Coming in at 817 square feet, it sits atop a flight of stairs and offers a spacious, wide porch. Inside, exposed white beams criss-cross the ceiling giving the space an open, lofty look.

The updated kitchen opens onto a large, covered patio via a set of double doors. The bedroom also opens onto the patio, which is always a bonus.

The main house shares the property with a detached studio unit, which the listing suggests could be used as anything from a guest bedroom to a home office.

Built in 1929, the house last sold in 2013 for $351,000. It’s now asking $549,000.
