Built in 1926, this charming English-style cottage on a cul-de-sac near Occidental College has, per the listing agent, been owned by the same family for the last seven decades.
The Eagle Rock residence sits on a 6,902-square-foot lot with a well-manicured front lawn. Its tall gable, arched front door, and red brick chimney give it a slightly whimsical, storybook appearance from the street.
Inside are two bedrooms and one bathroom spread across 1,258 square feet of living space, with wood floors, arched entryways, and diamond-grilled casement windows. The breezy living room has vaulted ceilings and a fireplace; it opens via sliding glass door to a small balcony overlooking the front yard.
Behind the home are terraced gardens, stone walls, and a grassy sitting area with views of the nearby mountains.
Equipped with fresh paint and a newer HVAC system, the home is asking $699,000.
