The 10 smallest houses for sale in Seattle right now

From ramblers to bungalows

View as Map

There are a lot of reasons a house could be tiny: The year it was built plays a role, as some some eras value a lot of space more than others. Other homes are tiny because they used fewer building materials, or because of the environment, or because of proximity.

The neighborhood seems to play a role sometimes—we typically see a lot of smaller homes for sale in West Seattle, and this time around they make up four out of ten. Older homes can be a little smaller, too. Sometimes, those spaces are tiny just because whoever built them wanted them to be.

Let’s take a fresh look at the littlest houses on the market in Seattle. Whatever the reason for their itty-bittiness, these ten houses ranging from 500 to 720 square feet are the tiniest currently on the market with Seattle addresses—although there are a lot more not for sale.

4159 22nd Ave SW
Seattle, WA 98106

This itty-bitty one-bedroom house in Delridge by Puget Park is just 500 square feet—but the lot around it is much, much bigger, at 10,000 square feet. An unfinished basement adds a little extra wiggle room. It’s on the market for $625,100.

2. 2450 Delmar Drive E: 600 square feet

2450 Delmar Dr E
Seattle, WA 98102

The little 600-square-foot cabin on this Montlake property is so rustic that the listing clarifies that it’s served by all major utilities—but it is kind of cute with a lofted bed and a little wood stove. It’s not a huge surprise that it’s cash-only; it’s going for $449,000, a $26,000 price drop from when it was first listed.

8127 31st Ave SW
Seattle, WA 98126

This precious 1940s rambler manages to fit two bedrooms into 610 square feet—and still has a decently-sized kitchen. A backyard built into a hillside would look great with some raised beds. It’s listed for $420,000.

Seattle, WA 98125

This weird little fixer in Lake City, listed for $415,950, tries to make use of its small space with a makeshift sleeping nook in addition to the one real bedroom. Common areas are grouped in a long, corridor-like space. There’s a lot to untangle in 630 square feet.

Just a couple of blocks from Roxhill Park in West Seattle, another little two-bedroom, 1942 rambler—similar shape and everything, just ever so slightly bigger—is listed for $484,950, down $5,000 from when it was first listed. A big backyard is lined by a greenbelt and has a brand-new shed.

Near Laurelhurst in the U District, the home tied for biggest of the small is a 720-square-foot Craftsman on a corner lot with vaulted ceilings and a separate studio. Out back, an arrangement of trees and bushes lines a patio. It’s asking $749,950—much spendier than any other home on this list. (Maybe it’s that Laurelhurst proximity.)
