A tiny 731-square-foot home in Denver that comes with a giant $1.2 million price tag is the week’s most popular listing.
Why so much money, you ask? It’s all about location, location, location!
Built in 1941, this three-bedroom abode is tucked away in a newer neighborhood surrounded by much larger homes. The listing notes there are “many opportunities for investment/redevelopment,” so it remains to be seen whether the next owner will tear it down or preserve its midcentury roots.
Also grabbing attention this week are a California architectural marvel, a yurt surrounded by wildlife in Washington state, and an award-winning showcase home in Washington, DC.
