Charm abounds in this sweet 2 BD + 1 BA Spanish cottage in a sought-after neighborhood. Located steps away from the incredible restaurants of Little Osaka/Sawtelle Japantown, this gem offers the convenience of city living tucked into the serenity of a lush, magical garden with well-appointed outdoor spaces. Enjoy al fresco meals around the fire pit on the red mahogany deck, as you watch the hummingbirds visit the backyard fountains and enjoy the shaded privacy of the mature California pepper tree. This lovingly cared-for 1926 cottage retains all of its original character, yet has been thoughtfully modernized with a remodeled kitchen with SS appliances, A/C, newer windows, copper plumbing and a high-power EV car charger. The fully-finished garage, with ample windows and large sliding doors open to the deck, makes a spacious home office, studio or guest room. Fenced-in backyard and driveway area makes this ideal home for your four-legged companions. Convenient freeway access, off-street parking, and just a few blocks to the EXPO train line!
