Location: Lakewood, CA
This adorable 1952-built bungalow in the Carson Park neighborhood in Lakewood, California has what you would call maximum curb appeal—and it doesn’t stop there. The avocado- and teal-hued accents on its inviting facade are also found throughout the 1,219-square-foot, three bedroom: On doors and frames, as the backdrop for the boomerang-patterned Formica counters, and on the walls in varying shades.
Other details that make this midcentury home pop include a breakfast nook and original steel cabinets in the bright kitchen, hardwood floors, and plenty of windows. A backyard patio featuring—you guessed it—an avocado tree (as well as several citrus trees) provide space for relaxation and entertaining. It’s asking $549,000. Poke around below.
