This one-bedroom cottage in Jefferson Park is cute as a button, inside and out. The compact, 619-square-foot home is bright and inviting, with vivid wallpaper accents, gleaming wood floors, and stylish new additions.
The house was built in 1924, and has its original wood floors and lovely front door, which includes a colorful panel of stained glass. Coved living room ceilings boost the vintage look of the place, but there are plenty of new additions, too—marble counters and a farmhouse sink in the kitchen; a built-in bar area in the living room. There’s also new copper plumbing and electrical wiring.
The house is fronted by drought-tolerant plants, and the modest 1,575-square-foot lot means that upkeep on the yard shouldn’t be too difficult.
Less than a mile from the Expo Line’s Expo/Western stop, the house last sold in 2015 for $223,500. It’s now listed for $525,000.
