Los Angeles | $1.875 Million
A storybook house built in 1936, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, on a 0.2-acre lot
This San Fernando Valley house is in Colfax Meadows, a quiet section of the Studio City neighborhood, which was named for the nearby movie lots established in the 1920s by Mack Sennett, the slapstick movie pioneer. Less than half a mile away is a popular stretch of Tujunga Avenue, where cafes are usually bustling with activity. Several schools are also close by, including Carpenter Community Charter School, a public elementary school, and Oakwood School, a private elementary, middle and high school.
With entrances to the 101 and 170 freeways within a five-minute drive, Hollywood and downtown Los Angeles are no more than 20 minutes away.
Size: 2,363 square feet
Price per square foot: $793
Indoors: A wooden gate set into a row of tall hedges opens to the front yard, where paving stones lead across the lawn to a brick porch sheltered by rose bushes.
The front door opens into a living room with hardwood floors, a fireplace framed in white brick and windows facing the front yard. Just off this space is a bright guest room with an en suite bathroom.
