815 Newell Front

Boy do I have a sweet-tooth when it comes to homes (and chocolate, of course!). I like them cozy and cute with tons of great decor! So when I saw this adorable listing from David Bush Realtor Joe Kacynski, I made an appointment with my dentist because this house is so sweet I got a toothache!

Hollywood Heights is hot, hot, hot, as you know, and most homes are on the market no longer than a month before they’re snatched up, usually for more than asking! That’s why we’re so glad we get to feature a home that is super fresh to the market and priced competitively at $299,000.

There are so many great details on this 1938 Tudor at 815 Newell, which is super close to the amazing duplex on this year’s Hollywood/Santa Monica Home Tour, including an entire bank of oversized stained glass windows, built-ins, a beautiful bath with original tile — super rare in this neighborhood and super cute to boot! — and a lovely backyard that is a gardener’s dream!

This home is cozy at 1,144 square feet, but there’s plenty of room in this backyard for an addition, if you so desire. But really, I envision some empty nesters loving this home, making it a beautiful place to retire to, and considering the historic preservation district this home is in, as well as the super-active neighborhood association, it’s perfect for someone who is switching gears in life.

This home is still well-appointed, though, with two bedrooms, one and a half baths, and a lovely living and dining room with built-ins. It has gorgeous hardwood floors and a super cute front porch that will be perfect for an umbrella and a bistro set! Inside you’ll find some awesome original light fixtures, too. 815 Newell Kitchen

The only thing I would do in this home is perhaps update the kitchen a little. Maybe reface the cabinets and put in a different countertop, something that jives a little more with the character throughout the rest of the house.

What you will love no matter what is the master bedroom, which has a full-size door off the room that leads to the backyard, which is a wonderful spot to test your garden know-how. And it’s fully fenced in, perfect for loving dog owners!

Seriously, check this home out while you can, because it’ll be gone in a flash!
