Only 766 square feet, but cute as a button!

One of the city’s earliest co-op buildings, Koreatown’s elegant Miramonte Terrace was built in 1922 for a collective of 18 families who pooled their resources to fund its construction. Along with the three-story main building, the gated complex at 3400 San Marino Street contains a detached carriage house (originally the caretaker’s lodge), which is now up for grabs.

Set behind the main building, the two-story unit is quite petite—766 square feet, to be exact. In the positive column, it’s bright and sunny, and full of period charm. Features include hardwood floors, crown moldings, built-in bookcases and seating, original tile, and a clawfoot tub.

The unit comes with two parking spaces and access to the community’s billiards room, sunroom, barbecue area, and garden with fruit trees. It’s listed with Lisa Paperno of Deasy Penner Podley at an asking price of $595,000, plus monthly HOA fees of $363.

Hardwood floors and crown moldings are found throughout.
Built-in bookshelves frame a window into the super-compact-but-functional kitchen, while the countertop in between provides a perfect space to set down your various Postmates/GrubHub delivery orders.

Benches in the dining nook provide additional storage.
The cottage gets plenty of natural sunlight.
Thankfully, the bathroom still has its beautiful original tile.
