​Why we have a crush on this property:

With multiple-offer situations taking place all over the country and interest rates flying high, it’s a struggle to buy even one house. But if you land this single-family for sale in Los Angeles, you get two bonus buildings with it. One is a Quonset hut, an arched single-room structure made of corrugated galvanized steel. Two sets of glass doors fill the space with light, making for a sweet yoga studio, writer’s den, or standalone living room. Right next to it, a few steps lead up to a darling blue wooden cabin with its own front porch. Inside, calming pine-colored walls and a vaulted ceiling make for a quaint home office (with the world’s quickest commute).

The three-in-one deal is a huge draw, to be sure, but the main single-family home is lovely enough for a closer look. The bathroom, with a clawfoot tub, subway tiled walls, and geometric blue-and-white flooring is a highlight — with a shower window looking out into the palm tree-blessed backyard to boot. And the kitchen, filled with sunlight sparkling stainless appliances and a farmhouse sink, makes me want to cook up a big brunch and lay it out in the adjacent breakfast room.

Of course, California living means plenty of time spent outside. This home’s backyard, complete with a pergola-covered patio, tons of lush plantings, and a stone path leading from the front yard to the cabin in the back, is all the motivation I’d need to get outside
