If you blink, you might drive by this teeny tiny one-bedroom house for sale in East York asking $309,000. The single floor home at 270 Linsmore Cres. is perhaps 600 square feet with a lot size of 12.50 x 138 ft. The cute white property has been renovated with $50,000 in upgrades including new windows, kitchen and bathroom. There isn't much to the condo/house alternative with one bathroom and a large backyard. The street already has a few knock-downs so there's potential to redevelop the land, and annual taxes are low at $1,661. Other houses on the street are far pricer (and larger) like this three-bedroom asking $699,000. Surprisingly, there are a handful of small houses in the city for a similar price like this property, resembling a cute school portable near Danforth Avenue and Victoria Park. In the downtown core, you're more likely to get a condo than a single family house. Alternatively, outside of the city a large three-bedroom, two bathroom house in Oshawa with garage and driveway will cost you $324,900. Would you pay $300K for this mini house?
