    Default A $518,000 770-Square Ft. Bungalow in Los Angeles

    Gentrifying Frogtown Hits Hipster Flip Stage With Tiny 1924 Cottage Going For $518k

    From the inside, this three-bedroom, roughly 770-square-foot cottage inFrogtown looks much bigger than might be expected. The U-shaped kitchen has been updated with quartz counters and custom cabinets and there's only one bathroom, but it's been upgraded too, with marble countertops and tile around the shower/tub. The spacious yard has entertaining space, a pergola, and one planting bed that subtly hints that many, many more could fit onto the lot. Last sold in January for $340,000, this snazzy flip is now asking$518,000. Yep, looks like Frogtown—which has recently become rather popular with condo developers—has now hit the Millennial-friendly flip stage of gentrification.


































    When I see real estate prices like these, it makes me really want to move back down South!

    LA is always so expensive, but I actually like this little place for a single person.

    I like the red door. Nice spot to kill a weekend.

    It definitely feels and looks bigger than I was expecting, and it's pretty cute. That price tag, though.

    It's not bigger, it's the wide angle lens!

    Shit like this is depressing. I like it here, but damn. Owning anything here is a big joke.

    I have to go look up where Frogtown is, never heard of it.

    yeah, i never heard of frogtown, either.

    places that little are going for >1k/sq ft here, so to me, that is a bargain.

    Just looked it up, it's a newly gentrified area near dodger stadium on the other side of the 5 freeway.

    Rent looks great there. Wonder how rapey it still is...

    I love it, but the size and that price kinda kills it for me. Plus, it's a one or two person house max, so why squeeze 3 bedrooms in there? I'd rather utilize that space in the common areas.

    I'd make it one huge master. But still, too small.

    ^ Or, a bigger master and one small guest room/office. Not three 10 x 9 bedrooms, that's for sure

    770 square feet is way too small. I am definitely not one of these micro-living type people. The place I'm in now is roughly 1300 sq feet and it's perfect for 2 people. I need room to stretch out, dammit.

    I would snap it up and happily live there alone with a ton of cats.
