Sandwiched between tony Ross and affordable Fairfax sits the quaint hamlet of San Anselmo. And inside this verdant town is a wee circa-1924 home on the market for $599,000.
The cottage at 25 Oak Knoll Avenue measures a compact 738 square feet and holds one bathroom and one bedroom.
The interiors are bare but workable. The small abode could benefit from a nice refresh, especially to highlight the nice archways in the living room. And while you’re at it, pull out that carpeting for something newer, something chicer.
Outside you’ll find a wood-shingled facade that blends in with the aboral surroundings, a stone path leading to the front door, and even one of those stand-alone steel mailboxes with a red flag. Utterly charming.
The home sits on a 4,600-square-foot lot, most of which can be found in the expansive backyard, which includes a storage shed.
Best of all, this home is affordable, comparatively-speaking. (The median home price in San Anselmo, according to Zillow, is $1,231,000.) For those seeking homes bordering on affordability inside the big city, check out these 11 solid starter homes in San Francisco.
