Home Sweet Home

One of my favorite Sunday guilty pleasures involves flipping through the Real Estate section in the New York Times. Featured apartments range anywhere from 500K to $5M, and tend to look more like movie sets than a cozy place to curl up on the couch and watch movies all day. And yet, these advertisements are the stuff 20-something fantasies are made of. I like to imagine that instead of coming home to 3 roommates and the smell of cat poo, I live in one of these posh, immaculate, perfectly balanced, professionally designed abodes. 

What I have yet to see in the Times is something like this.

Readers, I bring you the smallest house in Brooklyn. Located near the intersection of Ave T and Van Sicklen, you'll need to watch your head as you duck through the front door. Occupying what used to be a driveway, it's now a one bedroom, one bathroom home that sits on a parcel of land 7.25 feet and 113.67 feet long and has an interior of just under 3oo feet. 

Enter...


The living room, looking toward the front of the house. Notice the slick hardwood floors. 

Living room, looking toward the back of the house. 
The kitchen. Includes a washer and dryer!


Here's the bedroom. It comes with a Murphy bed, which is a necessity in such a small place. This is what it looks like with the Murphy bed down. 
The patio. Big enough for a cookout, though I don't know where you'd put all your neighbors (or your beer?) 


Here are the home's 'Listed Features': 
* Completely redone top-to-bottom, front-to-back! 
* Tumbled stone entrance walk 
* Renovated Bath 
* Renovated Kitchen with new stove, new cabinets and new stacked washer/dryer 
* Bedroom with Murphy Bed + 'Built-ins' ... (doubles as a den)! 
* Walkout to fenced patio 
* 100 Amp service 
* 2 Satellite Dishes and Receiver 
Window Air Conditioner Available

All this for a bargain - only $179,900.000!  

In short, 100 grand in New York can buy you a midget house.

Why Quality Matters
For many girls, prom night is the biggest event of the school year. You want to look - and feel - fabulous! Many cheap dressesjjshouse look great on the hanger, and may even look good in the dressing room, but after an hour on the dance floor, poorly made dresses lace wedding dresses australiawill pinch, bind or become too loose. Poorly constructed embroidery can become loose and fall off. Remember - you need to look great the entire night, and feeling comfortable in your dress without having to constantly adjust it will make your night memorable for all the right reasons - not because of a dress disaster!
