Tucked along the edge of Lower Pacific Heights and Anza Vista is what must be one of the brightest little cottages in the city. Its cheery red exterior and diminutive facade almost make it look something like a little red schoolhouse, but the property is actually a two-bedroom home. Inside, the ceilings are surprisingly high and oversized windows let in plenty of light. There are built-ins lining the living room, and an open, inviting floorplan throughout. The house, which last sold back in 2010 for $515,000, is currently on the market asking $849,000.
The main bedroom is upstairs, but a much larger bedroom complete with an adjacent sitting area occupies the home's lower level. The entire back of the house opens up onto a back garden. There is no parking available, but the house is practically next to Target and within easy walking distance of Whole Foods. It may also be possible to expand the cottage, although the listing notes that it is up to potential buyers to investigate development opportunities on their own.
