2109 Loma Vista Pl, $532,000
Perched on an Elysian Heights hillside, you can ditch your gym membership because your buns of steel come free with purchase of this 1bd, 1ba, 573 sq ft stair street home. Sure, it’s a little short on square footage (let’s call it “cozy”) and you have to climb a few flights to get there, but finding anything short of a tear-down in this neighborhood anywhere near this price has been impossible for years so this will be a great value for the right person. Hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, a vintage kitchen, pedestal sink and clawfoot tub in the bathroom, xeriscaped front yard, and a tiered backyard with a deck make this a perfect little artsy hideaway.

6178 Springvale Dr, $649,000
There’s so much more than meets the eye in this 2bd, 1ba, 876 sq ft Highland Park craftsman bungalow. Beyond the original oak floors, built-ins, fireplace, and quartz countertops you’ll have options galore with a bonus basement guest studio (complete with kitchenette and bathroom) AND a detached 1bd mother-in-law unit in the converted garage. Make income through Air Bnb, host friends and family from out of town, work from home, or do all three at the same time. Each space has been updated enough to be completely useable as-is but I think part of the fun of this gem would be getting to add personal design touches to each of the 3 spaces. Highland Park is your oyster!

5639 Ash St, $569,000
Gleaming engineered hardwood floors, subway tile, copper plumbing, and a fenced-in yard complete with apple, peach, nectarine, and clementine trees (plus check out that great patio!) aren’t the only delightful offerings in this 2bd, 2ba Highland Park craftsman home. You know what they say; location location location, and if you’ve been paying attention you know that Figueroa is blowing up with new coffee shops, yoga studios, bars and restaurants, and even a new bowling alley. This home puts you right in the middle of the action, not to mention just a couple of blocks off the Metro Gold Line. With a walk score of 83 you’ll be able to ditch your car and use the garage as your home office – oh so modern!
