If your life mantra is “less is more,” a tiny home in Pigtown might be just right for you.
The three-story home at 510 Parkin St. in South Baltimore is on the market for $190,000. It packs two bedrooms and two full baths into approximately 672 square feet. And at an open house Saturday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., you could get a feel of the size for yourself.
Other features include hickory floors, exposed brick walls and built-in storage options. If small spaces concern you, there’s also plenty of outdoor space with a rooftop deck and patio. Recently renovated by Baltimore-based Renewable Rowhomes, the home also has a security system, central air and heating, and a laundry room equipped with a washer and dryer.
The tiny house movement has gained traction nationwide, in part thanks to shows such as HGTV's "Tiny House Hunter,” which follows people looking to downsize into homes under 600 square feet. But in Baltimore, city building codes restrict people from living in such spaces — with the exception of older rowhouses that have been grandfathered in.
So if you dream of living in a tiny home in Baltimore, this may be your best chance.
