This hillside bungalow, built in 1948, is located on the southern border of Eagle Rock. It squeezes two bedrooms and one bath into its sun-splashed 600 square feet. The 4,878-square-foot property’s biggest draw is its outdoor space: “lush gardens and a patio that is primed for outdoor dining” and a deck that’s an “ideal spot to unwind and watch the sunset over a scenic expanse of city lights and the rolling hills of Griffith Park.” It’s on the market for $549,000.

Over in the San Fernando Valley, this North Hollywood one-bedroom is looking pretty cute. Built in 1923, it still boasts its original hardwood. The bungalow comes in at 934 square feet, but it sits on a spacious lot that spans 6,999 square feet, leaving lots of room for outdoor living. Per the listing, that space includes “mature orange trees, a cobblestone fence and a majestic Deodar Cedar that provides ample shade.” It’s on the market for $550,000.

Among the flips proliferating in Inglewood is this two-bedroom abutting Edward Vincent Jr Park. After selling for $340,000 in November 2016, the 870-square-foot home is returning with new windows, kitchen cabinets, flooring, Nest thermostat, and automated lighting. On a lot measuring 3,596 square feet, it holds a backyard with a fire pit and beds for gardening. The price tag? $549,000.
