Built in 1924, this homey storybook-style cottage in Altadena is filled with vintage period-revival personality.
Fronted by a neatly landscaped garden, the two-bedroom home has whimsical, sloping gables and an arched entryway. Interior features include hardwood floors, built-in seating, a brick fireplace, and stained glass windows.
The roomy kitchen appears to have been recently updated and offers newer appliances and a large center island that frames the stove. There’s also a breakfast nook and a bit of extra cabinetry at the end of the room.
The house has 1,058 square feet of floor space and sits on a 5,705-square-foot lot. Behind the home is a large, enclosed backyard with gardens and a concrete patio space. There’s also a detached garage and a separate structure that the listing bills as an “artist’s studio.”
Asking price is $549,000.
