Chip and Joanna Gaines have transformed numerous primary dwellings into luxurious dream homes over the previous four seasons of HGTV’s “Project,” incorporating everything from beautifully tiled doggie bathrooms to alfresco lounge areas. It is no wonder that one of the properties featured in the series is currently on the market for roughly $1 million. It’s incredible that the owners of that particular home only paid $28,000 for it. According to Realtor.com, Cameron and Jessie Bell, the couple who purchased the 700-square-foot shotgun-style house featured in a March 2016 scene of “Project,” are currently listing it for $950,000 with Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s — but, realtors are divided on whether or not it’s fantastic.
City bungalow, California, USA: $1 million
In Sunnyside, San Francisco, this modest Victorian house sold for just over $1 million in February 2021. The excellent location of this pocket-sized property, which is close to Glen Park Village, award-winning schools, and the city’s Muni Metro system, justifies its hefty selling price. There are only two rooms, one restroom, a lounge space, a family room, a kitchen, and a parlour on the inside. There’s a 3,000-square-foot patio, a large carport, and a private carport. They might have contributed to the price increase. The 719-square-foot house was built in 1906 and was in excellent condition when it was sold. However, it appears to have been constructed recently, unlike some of the other million-dollar homes on our list. Each room is spacious and light-filled, with good details such as inlet windows, high roofs, and adorning sconces.
A narrow house, London, UK: $1.1 million
Even though London is one of the world’s most expensive property markets, this tiny house in the East Dulwich district reveals how out-of-control house prices are in the British metropolis. The simple house, which is only 10 feet wide, sold for $1.1 million in 2016. The super-restricted farmhouse dubbed the “Thin House” was built on what was most likely an ancient contemporary site and is sandwiched between two traditional (and much larger) estates. Only 800 square feet of the living area are available north of two lower stories in the cook room layout home.
900-square-foot Victorian home, California, USA: $1.3 million
Have you ever wondered how much a 900 square foot room costs in San Francisco’s exorbitantly priced city? Given the circumstances, it’s no surprise that this Victorian home sold in 2019 for a cool $1.3 million. While the beauty of this North Slope property is undeniable, its current size and unfinished inside are strange to be at the top of everyone’s wish list. The modest house, which dates from 1887 and is located in Bernal Heights, has only one room and one bathroom. If you go through the front door, you’ll see a little doorway, a parlour, a lounge area, and space for a kitchen – even though the house didn’t have one at the time of publication!
Tiny beach cabins, Massachusetts, USA: $1.8 million
When you think of oceanside cottages or waterfront lodges, natural wood shacks with simple interiors and necessities come to mind more often than not. As a result, it created quite a stir when this listing went on the market in November 2021. A basic 405 square foot room along the coast of Provincetown, Massachusetts, may be yours for just under $1.8 million. Three small wood huts overlooking the sea are part of the posting located on pursued Union Wharf. This is most likely why the lodges’ prices are so high, even though this waterside convenience is far from extravagant. Built in 1930, the cabins require some attention, and the new owner may decide to demolish them and start from scratch.
High-rise apartment, Happy Valley, Hong Kong: $3.7 million
Hong Kong has become the world’s most expensive city due to overcrowding and overvaluation. With over 7,000,000 people living in a 1,100-square-kilometer area, getting your foot on the property stepping stool is an astronomically costly proposition. From luxury micro condominiums to co-lodging arrangements, the city has a plethora of seemingly ordinary residences that are far from typical occupants – as this loft in the city’s Happy Valley area reveals. The discreet loft spans 1,185 square feet and is located inside a very ordinary towering tower block. Three rooms, two bathrooms, and a light-filled parlour with a small eating area are featured. A current and bright facility would appeal to young professionals and families — assuming they have enough money.
Hamptons home, New York, USA: $8.5 million
Assuming you’re a real estate specialist, you’re well aware that The Hamptons in Long Island, New York, is one of the fancy places to buy in the United States, rivalling even Beverly Hills and Palm Beach. Glade Lane in Southampton has earned the moniker ‘Extremely Rich Person Lane,’ so it’s no surprise that this unusual tiny home will sell for a staggering $9.5 million in September 2021. Regardless, the price has now been reduced to a more reasonable $8.5 million. Unlike other over-stuffed residences, this one practically comes with land — four pieces, to be exact. It also benefits from a sought-after location in private Northampton Shores, which sits above Morton Nature Reserve and may have aided the price. There are other three structures on the property, some of which date back over a century, which may have contributed to the home’s value.
