L.A. real estate prices are known for their general insanity, so the odds of finding a great property at an incredible value are about the same as the odds of hitting the lottery. That's what makes this two-bedroom, two-bathroom restored bungalow with a bonus studio space such a winner.

Things we love about this Property Crush:
This turnkey bungalow in Los Angeles isn't your average flip, void of personality and character. From the moment you pull up to the house, you're struck by the curb appeal of the white house with black trim and a punchy mint green door, plus the giant front window.
The thoughtfully restored residence includes an ensuite bathroom off the front bedroom, which features a penny-tile floor and a clawfoot tub – a fitting nod to the history of this 1915 home. The second bathroom, which has a standup shower, is located off the back bedroom, and includes two doors, so guests don't have to walk through the bedroom to use it.
This home was made for indoor-outdoor living and enjoying L.A.'s gorgeous year-round weather: French doors lead out on to a wooden deck with a pergola and privacy shades – ideal for entertaining or sipping coffee in the morning. But perhaps the most appealing backyard feature is the detached studio space/converted garage, which can serve as an office, she shed, man retreat, party space or even a crash pad for guests.
