Just north of Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area in centrally-located Baldwin Hills, this pristine Traditional-style home is delightful inside and out.

The 1940s residence at 3822 Hauser starts off with blue clapboard siding, a sunny yellow door, a petite porch, and a garden stuffed with succulents. Inside, find wood floors, a wood-burning brick fireplace, and an arched entryway. Newly remodeled, the kitchen brandishes an apron sink, teal cabinets, stainless steel appliances, subway tile, and floors in a herringbone pattern.

In all, the dwelling measures 1,202 square feet and contains one bathroom and three bedrooms, including one with whimsical tree wall art.

But as the listing rightly notes, the “most irresistible feature of this home is the backyard.” The sizable space is shaded by mature trees and is blanketed in a grassy lawn with garden beds.

Looking much sweeter than it did when it last sold in 2014 for $466,000, the 7,035-square-foot property is listed with Lorin Ruttenberg and Erica Lockhart of Compass at an asking price of $899,000.

The fireplace is original.

The kitchen is on-trend.

In the backyard, there’s room to dine, garden, somersault, or expand the home’s footprint.
