Located in the Berkeley Hills near Tilden Park, this downright delightful home is sure to sell fast. Why, just look at it—brick facade, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, Dutch front door, indoor fireplace, outdoor fireplace, French windows, and even a loft that the realtor’s listing describes as “the perfect cozy hideaway for a writing room, guest room, or den.”

Swoon, indeed.

As SFGate similarly points out, this pied-à-terre really is the ideal setting for writing, say, the next great American novel or, more realistically, your next first-person piece of content to go viral.

Featuring one bed, one bath, and 940 square feet, 60 Latham Lane is, at the risk of hyperbole, one of the cutest homes we’ve seen in years. Even the dual brick (red on the exterior, painted on the interior) works beautifully here.

Sure, some of it could use a gentle refresh (the bathroom and kitchen, while serviceable, might benefit from a remodel), but this circa-1938 home is a bargain at a six-figure price point.

Asking is $795,000. Open house this Sunday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
