Description: This 1929 English cottage was designated a historic landmark in 2004. The house itself is not only gorgeous, it has a storybook look that gives the impression that Little Red Riding Hood could come skipping round the corner.

Inside, the home is all leaded glass, subway tile baths, and built-in knick-knack shelves. But it has also been modernized and updated with a Viking range, Sub-Zero refrigerator and granite counters.

And the garden, oh my! The house sits on barely a tenth of an acre, but what color and form is packed into that small space. There's a wonderful English garden of foxgloves, Icelandic poppies, delphiniums and other bright bloomers, a flagstone patio and paths, scented herbs, thick shrubs and vine-covered fences. Topping it all off, almost literally, is a thick fig vine that forms dense conical canopies over the front of the house.

Best of all, the home is located outside San Diego, which has some of the best weather in the country. That means the residents can enjoy the fabulous outdoor setting all year round.
