Lovely English Cottage for sale in L.A.

The fabulous L.A. real estate blog Soulful Abode recently highlighted a vintage house on the market in Glendale, California (a Los Angeles Eastside neighborhood).

For all you cottage lovers, this place is about as close as they come to perfection…

Technically, it’s not actually English, since it was built in California, but have a look inside – you may as well be in the English countryside in this home! It is so quaint!

Features include original fireplace, moldings, built-ins, a vintage Wedgewood, a modern kitchen and a 463 sq. ft. sun room/guest room/office in the attic. The kitchen opens up to an inviting, blooming backyard that almost steals the whole show.

What can I say? The sloped ceilings, mossy green on the walls, the skylight… I’m crazy about this cottage!

The garden out back is a little slice of heaven right here on terra firma…

Did you notice the outdoor chandelier hanging from the large branch over the bistro table?

Blissful, divine (and all of those other dainty blogger words).

Although… at that price ($539k) you could buy a palace in most other areas of the US!

    oooooh, I love this cottage!! From the red door to the spiral staircase to the fabulous kitchen, it’s adorable. I would have thought in LA area that it would be priced even higher?? Seems like a steal at that price for CA. Wish I could buy it and move there! Thanks for posting :)

      I guess that market in LA took a real hit over the last couple of years – but I hear it’s on the rebound now!

    But true, if I had that kind of money, I’d probably just buy a palace in MN…lol :)
