This cute “cottage” on the edge of Highland Park feels pretty rural for Los Angeles. Partially clad in river rock, it sits on a hilly road without sidewalks (but it is walking distance to the Arroyo Seco). The two-bedroom, one-bathroom dwelling was built in 1905 and measures a cozy 606 square feet. Outdoor space includes a front porch and a side deck with treetop views. Per the listing, the home sits on two lots, leaving room for expansion. The asking price? $649,000.
House-hunters wanting a big city vibe will prefer this 860-foot condo just off historic Broadway in Downtown Los Angeles. Located in the Bartlett Lofts, the 10th-floor unit features an open floor plan and one bedroom and one bath. Outfitted with lots of windows, a contemporary kitchen, and concrete floors, the pad is on the market for $645,000 with monthly HOA dues of $492.
Here’s a classic ranch house in Northridge with three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and 1,931 square feet of living space. Inside, the house features two fireplaces, wood-paneled walls, sliding glass doors, and vintage cabinetry. Behind the house is a swimming pool and a covered concrete patio. In front is a grassy lawn and an attached two-car garage. Sitting on a 9,000-square-foot lot, the home is asking $659,500.
Here’s a charming Craftsman in Exposition Park. It needs a little refresh, but the home, built in 1908, has potential: There’s wide molding, a window seat, original built-ins, and a brick fireplace. Coming in at 1,294 square feet, it’s got four bedrooms and one bath, plus a front porch and small backyard. It’s listed for $650,000.
If you don’t mind freeway noise, here’s a sunny Spanish-style bungalow next to the 10 freeway in Mid-City. Totally remodeled two years ago, it’s returning to the market with a new kitchen, new floors and windows, and new A/C and heating system. Built in 1923, it comes in at 1,016 square feet, with two bedrooms and one bathroom. It’s asking $660,000.
