A small house on a big lot? That works for minimalists that are gardeners, or for people who don't want to take care of much and want some space between them and their neighbors. There's a 650 square foot 1944 house for sale that comes with 0.31 acres and a $285,000 price tag. That's enough to provide 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, and an acoustic buffer. And, it is done with a pragmatic style. The heat may be electric, but there's a woodstove that's actually designed to be a stove, not just a luminary bit of ambiance; and it's the room divide between the kitchen and the living room. A handy way to have a backup heat and cooking source that is distinctive enough to be decorative in its own fashion. You also get to tend the fruit trees outside, and maybe cut back a few of the bushes that seem to be encroaching on the back patio. Or, leave them where they are because their leaves may be an added privacy screen.
