Tucked behind a tiny, rickety-looking facade in Ingleside is a compact but nearly perfect little home. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom house is on the market for $399K, making it a very, very desirable member of our Under $500K Club. Don't be fooled by its underwhelming street presence: Inside you'll find loads of cozy-making wood-paneled walls and ceilings, which give the whole place the feel of a modern cottage. The place was built in 1910, but at some point someone gave it a very thoughtful reno. There are dark hardwood floors that set off the lighter wood on the walls, and the bright living room at the front has built-in shelving. There's even a totally sweet stained-glass window in the bath. Architect Barbie would, dare we say, approve.
The bedroom upstairs also makes use of wood touches, although it does look as if the only bathroom is through the bedroom. The home also boasts solar panels and a backyard. It is located only half a block away from Ocean Avenue, one of the city's fastest-evolving commercial corridors.
