To say it’s a cozy space would be an understatement. A home listed for sale in Prince Albert is so small, it made a national list of the top 10 tiniest homes for sale in the country.
At 384 square feet, the property located at 498 River St. is ranked fourth on the list compiled by real estate portal Point2 Homes and featured on the Business News Networks website.
The listing agent, Michael Lypchuk of P.A. Remax Realty, said the entire home would probably fit within the main floor living space of a standard home.
“It is a pretty sweet bachelor pad for someone looking to buy,” Lypchuk said. “It is completely redone and is one of a handful of properties in Prince Albert that actually extends down to the river. You could fish out your back door if you wanted to.”
The smallest house on the list is in Medicine Hat, Alberta, and is just shy of 300 square feet; about seven times smaller than the size of the average home in Canada. Half of the top 10 properties are in Saskatchewan.
A residential property between 101 and 500 square feet is considered a ‘Tiny House.’ The trend to downsize is gaining popularity in Canada as affordable housing prices continue to soar out of reach for many. The property in Prince Albert is listed at $144,900. According to Tiny Home Alliance Canada, other factors driving the trend include environmental considerations and a desire by people to simplify their lives.
