Things we love about this property crush:

When you conjure up sunny images of a California bungalow, it’s this home that ticks all the boxes.

The exterior is dreamy with curved windows, a Spanish tiled roof, and bursts of green. There’s a sweet little porch and lots of plants and trees.

Once inside, the front door leads to a light and airy living space bursting with sunlight from beautiful arched windows. Keep walking and you’ll find that the kitchen is a perfect marriage of modern and vintage touches. The updated appliances and Wolf range look incredible next to the restored steel cabinets and custom walnut counters. There’s a spacious dining area on one side and french doors that lead to a covered patio on the other.

The home has two bedrooms—one with a darling reading nook (hello, extra space)—and two full bathrooms. One bedroom boasts an en suite bathroom with stunning blue tiling and a clawfoot tub—overlooking a private deck. Step outside and you feel as if you’re in the poshest adult treehouse. There’s a deck for lounging, a big yard, and pretty landscaping with fig and pomegranate trees.

Even better? The home features a bonus space with a kitchenette, bathroom, and plenty of living space—perfect for all the visitors you’ll be hosting.
