Sweet Cherrywood cottage asks $460K

Charming 1950s home with updates

Small home with flat roof, painted yellow-green, small porch, 1950s
1804 East 38-1/2 Street
Via Estately

Some (like, say, a listing agent) might say this frame house is in Wilshire Wood, but that seems like a stretch. Really, its location gives it the best of both worlds: the small but mighty social scene, restaurants, and stores in Cherrywood and the proximity to parks and Mueller you get in Wilshire Wood. Win-win.

Built in 1952, it has a homey charm, with lots of windows, light-colored wood floors, French doors, and opened-up spaces that make it light and bright. The 1,510-square-foot house has two bedrooms and one bathroom and has been renovated and remodeled with AC and electric systems upgrades and kitchen and bathroom updates, as well as quite the infusion of energy-efficiency features, including solar screens, weather stripping, ducts cleaned and sealed, attic insulation, radiant barrier, and an energy-saving washer and dryer. Sure, energy efficiency isn’t necessarily the sexiest thing the house has to offer, but a buyer’s love of such things tends to grow over the years.

The updated kitchen features stainless appliances and a dining counter.

There’s also a formal dining room and a sunny little side room/office/library.

Floors throughout are hardwood, except for the hard tile in the updated bathroom.

The one-story house has a one-car garage, open patio/deck, and a large, fenced backyard.
