This adorable Cabbagetown cottage dates back to the 1800s and is one of the neighborhood's original homes, according to the listing. With a single bedroom, bathroom, and just 834 square feet, it could almost qualify as a tiny home, too, but that's not to say it seems cramped.
The opposite, in fact.
The family room soars for two stories and offers a fireplace and the cool, urban touch that exposed beams provide.
The available space has certainly been maximized here, but the resulting upstairs flex space seems a bit wonky for anyone whose head isn't triangular. Calling the master bedroom "spacious" could be a stretch, but the listing agent is right on the money in describing what awaits out back as a "private landscaped backyard oasis."
It sits a block from Carroll Street and therefore carries the "very walkable" Walk Score of 74. Could be a primo buy for a single city dweller or very small couple, especially if they're carless. The price: $225,000.
