HERMON — The denizens of the tree-shaded Monterey Trailer Park, which dates back to the 1920s, are preparing for the arrival of new neighbors with the installation of a row of tiny, prefab homes on the historic property.
The 400-square-foot homes, complete with porches, were installed on the south end of the park after discussions with preservationists and the city’s Cultural Heritage Commission. The city in 2002 declared the approximately 2-acre park in the 6400 block of Monterey Road a cultural historic landmark, which means any major changes must be reviewed by the commission.
The narrow, one-bedroom homes– some with a sleeping loft, reachable by a narrow stairway — were moved into place this summer and went up for rent last month at $1,800 each.
Real estate agent Claudia Montoya told CBS2 that the tiny homes attracted a lot of interest when they went up for rent. “They have been calling nonstop for applications.”
