If you believe that sometimes the best things come in small packages, then the Lakewood midcentury modern home at 7158 Wildgrove Ave. may just have your name on it.

Although this home comes in at just 1,379 square feet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, it has big personality. For starters, it's situated on a corner, interior lot that's full of lush landscaping.

Once inside, the vaulted ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room allow for delicious natural light and a view to all that pretty landscaping.

The kitchen is a nice size, despite the property's mini footprint, and it has thoughtful touches, like a whole wall of storage to make "living small" doable. There's also a nook that is just screaming for a stacked bar. Martini anyone? The dining area, just off the living room, is ideally situated for entertaining.

Both bedrooms feature double closets, and the master boasts a modern en-suite bathroom with a sizeable shower. The two rooms also have windows looking out into the beautiful backyard that serves as the focal point of the home.

Speaking of, this outdoor oasis features a sparkling pool, gas fireplace, dining area, and myriad flowers and plants. There is also a grassy side yard so that kids and pets alike can frolic and play. 

As an added bonus to all this, the property was just reduced to $599,000 after less than a month on the market, which leads us to believe the seller is motivated to sell. This combined with its attractive Lakewood Elementary zoning means it's not going to last in this hot real estate bubble much longer.
