Squeezing Family Life Into 738 Sq Ft: Time To Move On

There’s no room at the inn. Or in this case the cottage. How refreshing to see an owner candidly describe their home as “really little”.

“We have raised our 4 year old daughter here in the plus room; but the cottage is really little! Now with a second baby we need more space. This is perfect home for a single person or a sweet starter home for two people. It is a very special place — we hate to move!”

Such honesty will work in their favor. So will a competitive price ($499,000) and the patent charm of this tiny (738 sq ft) jewel of a home in central Berkeley on Grant Street (@ Virginia). It is situated on a 3,125 sq ft lot and includes large mature garden and a 2-room carriage house.

I know you’re looking at $676/sq ft but I like the tone of this FSBO listing and I like the look of this home. I wish them luck.
