According to Graham Hill, the man behind LifeEdited, “we’ve essentially become …America the big: big trucks, big cars, big houses.” And, even though we live in almost three times the space than we did back in the 50s, our tendency to consume led to a lifestyle filled with more stuff but lacking joy. His solution echoes a modernist ethos that less equals more.
In a quest to live a life filled with more happiness instead of stuff, it’s no wonder why many of us, like Hill, are discovering the benefits of living in smaller spaces.
When the current owners purchased this modern home sited on a compact lot it measured a mere 495 square feet. To give them a tad more space they completed an addition in 2016-17 that stayed true to the home’s midcentury modern vibe.
Now measuring 921 square feet, the interior maintains its open-living concept with original details – including vaulted ceilings and jalousie windows – and extends into the small backyard with sitting areas and raised gardens.
Eye-catching details include powder blue cabinetry with stylish brass hardware, stone counters, subway tile, and stainless appliances in the kitchen. The master bedroom has a private bath with a vintage dual vanity and Herringbone marbled floors. There’s also a second bedroom and bathroom, wide plank flooring, outdoor storage, laundry closets, a two-car covered carport, and a privacy fence that completes the home.
If Hill is right about the benefits of living small, you’re gonna feel ecstatic living here.
Asking price is $829,000.
