One advantage of a tiny house: privacy, or at least a better chance at it. A tiny house takes up less room on the lot, which is handy because there's more room for foliage that can wrap around the house. Let them grow for a while and be surrounded by garden views, regardless of the neighborhood. Grow your own view.
A bungalow in South Delridge has just that setting. It is a 720 square foot house on a 5,160 square foot lot. Instead of being surrounded by lawn, it is surrounded by a tended and planned landscape of shrubs, bushes, and trees woven with a flagstone hardscape. From the front, people walking by have to look up a tall set of steps and through well-established bushes to see the house.
Well-established describes the house. It was built in 1918, which makes it a iconic Craftsman with a broad and useful porch, details like nice millwork around some of the windows and doors, and a classically simple layout for 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. They're asking $315,000 for the historic property. It is up to you to find out which stories are in that history.
What's probably more appealing is simply relaxing on either the front porch, the back porch, or the back patio - a surprising number of choices considering the size of the house, or actually, maybe because of the size of the house.
