Incredible value in this charming 2 bed, 1 bath cottage in the hills of El Sereno. This private, quiet location offers beautiful views of the surrounding greenery from nearly every window in the home, and the front deck is the perfect place to sip your morning cup of coffee while taking it all in. The bright and airy living room features a bay window and an abundance of natural light. The adjacent dining room has a built-in sideboard and the kitchen boasts beautiful butcher block countertops, high-end appliances, and plenty of storage. Both bedrooms are located upstairs and feature original hardwood floors while the full bathroom includes a large bathtub, white penny tile floors, and an open-shelving linen built-in. The spacious rear yard includes multiple seating areas for entertaining, space to garden, and an upper viewing area with even more spectacular hillside views. The top of the property has gated access to Ascot Hills Park, a local hidden gem with hiking trails full of wildflowers and incredible views of DTLA and the San Gabriel Valley. Recent owner upgrades include a 220V electrical panel, double-paned windows throughout, and high-end range. There's a large, convenient storage area located underneath the house, big enough for a potential conversion to a home office or studio space. Located just minutes away from shops, restaurants, parks, & transportation, and with Craftsman details, stunning views, and inviting living spaces, this is the perfect place to call home.
