Four-tenths of an acre might not sound like much, but in the Bungalow District, it’s a veritable kingdom. At 1321 Alta Vista Road—which is about three times the size of its neighbors—that means there’s room for a sweet Craftsman house, a two-bedroom guest house, and a respectable yard. It’s now on the market for $2.4 million.
Bedrooms: Four (main house) and two (guest house).
Bathrooms: Three (main house) and one and a half (guest house).
Size/Acreage: 3.437 square feet / .39 acre.
Price: $2.395 million.
Last sold: for $1.8 million in 2013.
Listing agent: Luke Ebbin of Compass.
Built in 1910, the four-bedroom main house is in excellent shape, with plenty of windows, attractive wainscoting, an impressive fireplace, and a kitchen and bathrooms that don’t need to be touched—a rarity at any price point. The only ground-floor room that doesn’t shine is the dining area, but maybe you’ll be able to dine out on the snazzy new ipe deck, under a towering star pine.
On the far side of the star pine is a two-bedroom guest house. The structure would need some work to get it as nice as the main house, but for now, you could keep renting it to the month-to-month tenant.
