When you spot words like “condo alternative” in a real estate listing, you know the house is going to be small. That’s the case of this 1922 cottage at the corner of Grafton Street and Lake Shore Avenue in Echo Park that went up for sale this week at an asking price of $319,000, according to Redfin. The clapboard house has one bedroom, one bath and a small “bonus space.”
The listing does not provide the square footage but a check of online assessors records shows the house has only 440 square-feet of space, which makes it slightly bigger than a traditional, two-car garage.
The house may not offer much interior space, but there is enough room on the 2,500-square foot lot for off-street parking and a “dream yard.”
