The two-bedroom fixer has newer electrical and a newer roof, too. There aren't a ton of interior shots, but one of the rare peeks inside shows some nice historic windows and a great view of the surrounding hills. Built in 1921, this bungalow is asking $379,000.

Dating all the way back to 1922, this compact residence sits on a nearly 8,000-square-foot lot, with a little front porch and plenty of space in the back. A basement space offers an opportunity for a workshop or studio. Tucked into the Highland Park hills off Figueroa, the house has a definite cabin-like vibe. The house is listed for $599,000.

Set back on a downward-sloping lot in Glassell Park, this small, cozy house has one bedroom and bathroom, plus a basement and a few outdoor areas. The bedroom backs up to what looks like an office with a wall of big windows and lots of light. The house is listed for $499,000.

926 Maltman Avenue

Copy Link

676 square feet

What a catch—one of the famous Maltman Bungalows! The Silver Lake complex's restoration won an award from the Los Angeles Conservancy in 2008, and one look at those interior shots and it's easy to see why. This 1926 residence is the opposite of a fixer-upper. The one-bedroom house has barrel ceilings and hardwood floors, and is in walking distance to Sunset Junction. It's listed for $655,000.
