Originally built in 1940, this remodeled two-bedroom cottage in Los Angeles’s Glassell Park neighborhood perches on an elevated corner lot, enjoying hilltop views as well multiple outdoor spaces.

Recently listed in the Glassell Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, this renovated and expanded 1940s cottage sits on an elevated lot above other homes on the street. Multiple patios surround the L-shaped structure, providing a welcoming entrance.

The sun-drenched interior comprises several living spaces including a central seating area and adjacent multipurpose space. A modern kitchen, dining area, and home office are located in a large, free-flowing space to the right.

The open-concept layout spans 1,457 square feet and situates large living and dining areas at the front of the home, affording directing access to the outdoors. The two bedrooms are tucked toward the rear, getting generous amounts of sunlight.
