This little hillside bungalow in Montecito Heights looks charming as can be, with a friendly exterior and some nice vintage details on the interior.

The house was built in 1934 and still boasts original hardwood floors, casement windows, and a wood-burning fireplace in the living room. The kitchen, meanwhile, has been freshly updated with new countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a farmhouse sink.

The house has just one bedroom and one bathroom (equipped with classic wall tile and a separate bathtub and shower), but the 856 square feet of living space is big enough for a formal dining room and a laundry area.

The home sits on a 5,199-square-foot lot with a large backyard that extends up the hillside, providing nice views around the neighborhood. There’s also a roomy patio space and a tiny detached studio that looks to be in use as an office space. A one-car garage sits beneath the main residence.

The house last sold in 2000 for $114,000. It’s now on the market for $585,000.
