Everyone likes looking at itsy-bitsy homes, but most of them are just too small to really have broad appeal. Not these! Though each is less than 1,000 square feet, you will be surprised at the spaciousness of bedrooms and living space. Porches and lots of windows create indoor/outdoor connections. No sleeping lofts, either: everything’s on one level here.

Suite, Snack Bar, and More

Don't underestimate this 697-square-foot home; it's got some impressive details. The bedroom suite includes a walk-in closet, the kitchen boasts a snack counter to the family room, and the front porch is sure to catch the eye of passers-by. See more images, information, and the floor plan.

Serious Curb Appeal

This stylish 972-square-foot Mediterranean plan offers lots of windows for natural ventilation. The covered outdoor living space provides a shady place to sit. A roof overhang shades the foyer. Inside, a fireplace warms the living room, a snack bar serves up easy meals, and the bedroom has more space than you’d expect. See more images, information, and the floor plan.
