This cozy but sunny bungalow in the Westside neighborhood of Sawtelle is so cute, it’s easy to forgive that it’s tucked up against the 405 and 10 freeway interchange.
Measuring 1,132 square feet, it holds two bedrooms and one bath, a living room with a streamline moderne-style fireplace, a breakfast nook surrounded by windows, and a dining room with French doors that open to a small, grassy backyard. Alas, those rear-yard facing doors and windows also face an overpass.
But if you can get past that view and the noise, we think the yellow abode would make a darling starter home. Built in 1934, it retains its vintage flavor, with arched entryways, coved ceilings, and original and colorful tile.
It’s listed for $799,000.
