Here’s another little gem from the Crown City, a.k.a. Pasadena. Located in the San Rafael Hills at 462 Redwood Drive, this fairytale charmer was built in 1930. According to county records, the one-bedroom, one-bath home officially measures a compact 1,053 square feet. Per its listing, however, it’s also got an unpermitted 227-square-foot bonus room, plus a basement “with existing plumbing.”

Notable original features include hardwood floors, Gothic arches, exposed beams, wrought iron work, leaded glass windows, a fireplace, and built-in niches and hutches. The cottage does not come equipped with the standard stainless appliances, but its plumbing, electrical panel, sewer system, and roof have all been upgraded.

On the market for the first time in three decades, the property is listed with Shida Adams of Compass at an asking price of $749,000.

The living room features beamed ceilings, an arched fireplace, and leaded-glass doors and windows.
An archway with plaster niches leads to the formal dining room.
While the galley-style kitchen comes sans appliances, it does have a separate pantry for storage.
Located upstairs, the bedroom has coved ceilings and hardwood floors.
The bathroom features colorful tile and built-in storage.
The property occupies a 4,500-square-foot lot.
