There’s an old adage that advises first-time homebuyers (usually those shopping on the lower end of the price spectrum) to scoop up “the smallest house in the best neighborhood.” For some lucky buyer, this one-bedroom, 604-square-foot bungalow in the LA River-adjacent hills of Silver Lake could be that house.
Built in 1931, the dwelling is private, separated from neighbors and the quiet, sidewalk-less street by a tall fence, hedges, and a patio. Interiors feature original hardwood floors, a free-standing fireplace with a midcentury modern vibe, a charming kitchen with breakfast nook, and one serene bathroom with spring green tile and a clawfoot tub.
The house also has a detached, one-car garage, which could either serve as storage or, with a little work, a studio or home office. The property is a short walk to access to the Coralitas Red Car Trail, which curves around the hill on which the house sits.
