Another Stubby Shotgun House Hits the Market in Brooklyn, This One Asking $999K

This shotgun house in East Bed Stuy (asking $775K last December) needs to move over: there’s another stubby property in town. And by town, we mean the neighborhood of Greenwood Heights, Brooklyn, located just south of Park Slope. The two-story home comes with two bedrooms, one-and-a-half bathroom and the opportunity to expand. The question is, would you pay just under $1 million for it?

The tiny house, which sits on a 25 by 100 foot lot, can be built up to include as much as 5,000 square feet, the listing says. But for now, it’s pretty compact living in here.

The first floor holds an eat-in kitchen, with plenty of cabinet space, and a dining room. Through the kitchen is a bonus room with a half bathroom that could be used either as a living room or additional bedroom.

Then, up a short flight of stairs — you’re not going very high! — there’s another room as well as the master bedroom and a full bathroom. The home may be stubby, but at least it packs in more than one bedroom.

Despite its compactness, there is some extra space to be enjoyed throughout the house. The basement is big and is currently being used as a music recording space. The home also boasts a private and massive backyard that’s been landscaped quite nicely. If you can’t live large inside your house, you may as well take advantage of the ample outdoor space.
