This cheery City Island cottage may look tiny, and while it’s definitely not big, it manages to fit two bedrooms, a bonus loft space, several closets, and a high-end kitchen into its petite frame. Plus, it has a large backyard and is just blocks from a private beach. First spotted by Curbed, who notes that the yellow-shingled charmer is on “one of the heavily-residential side streets” of the Bronx island, the house is asking $385,000.
Built in 1940, the house measures 761 square feet. In addition to its two bedrooms, both of which seem to have ample closet space and feature cute barn-style doors, there’s a lofted area that can be used for storage, a home office, or a guest room. There’s an unfinished basement for even more storage.
The front-facing living room gets lots of light. Throughout the home are hardwood floors, picture moldings, and central AC.
In addition to a fully renovated bathroom, the kitchen is also brand new. It has quartz counters, a glass-tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, and a cozy built-in banquette for dining.
Off the kitchen is the 50-foot deep backyard, which has plenty of room for a post-beach-day BBQ.
