Tiniest homes on the San Francisco market

Do good things come in small packages? They may well, if Curbed SF is to be believed. The site has compiled a list of the 10 smallest homes currently on the market, using PropertyShark and Point2Homes to source their information.

So what’s the range? It runs from a 282-square-foot home at Cubix to a 600-square-foot two-bedroom cottage in Noe Valley. Let’s look at a few of these in greater detail, shall we?

The smallest home is located at Cubix #604, 766 Harrison Street. The asking price for this tiny studio is $375,000, making the price per square foot a whopping $1,401. It’s billed as “smart and ingenious living with clever built-in/fold-out features”, meaning this is modular to the max. It’s got wood finishes, a built-in full-size Murphy bed that doubles as a closet, dresser and nightstand, and a “generous” bathroom with a shower over the tub. Other building amenities include a barbecue area, landscaped roof deck, and glass-enclosed outdoor picnic area.

Squarely at the middle of the list is 601 Van Ness Avenue #248, a 442-square-foot Civic Center studio. At an asking price of $368,000, the price per square foot is $833. This Opera Plaza place has new “wood look” floors and fresh paint (whoo-hoo!), and is close to Hayes Valley. Other Opera Plaza amenities include pool, spa and gym.

Finally, let’s look at the biggest place on the list: the Noe Valley two-bedroom at 543 30th Street. Billed as a “diamond in the rough” and a “good investment opportunity at an ideal location”, this place is going for $859,000 at a price per square foot of $1,433. This two-story place has stainless steel appliances, hardwood floors and views. At 600 square feet, it’s also got more room than the rest on the list.
