Location: Big Sur, California
Though not quite a tiny house in the technical sense, this 684-square-foot octagonal cottage is no ordinary compact dwelling. Located above Pfeiffer Beach in one of the most picturesque regions in California (that would be Big Sur), it sits on approximately 10 acres of potential-full land with breathtaking views of the ocean and surrounding mountains.
Inside, three large windows in the bright and cheery living room frame the water, and wood lines the floors and panels the vaulted and beamed ceilings. There’s also a full bathroom, kitchenette, wood burning stove, and some closet space. Right outside the landscaped house is a narrow graveled patio and outdoor shower for easy post-beach rinsing off, while further down the way is a larger raised patio from which to take in the expansive ocean vistas.
Located on Sycamore Canyon, it’s asking $1,349,000, which is certainly pricey for such a small home, but the views, and the acreage—and, of course, the location—are easily worth a million dollars. Take a look.
