D.C.’s tiniest home has returned, listed for $1,400 per month

This “mini-demi-pseudo-sillyhouse” is back on the market

Lovers of everything itty bitty are sure to fall for this 252-square-foot single-family home in Capitol Hill. Asking $1,400 per month, this is Washington, D.C.’s smallest home, measuring 9.5 feet wide and 28 feet long.

With this in mind, the listing doesn’t hesitate to emphasize just how cramped it is. It describes itself as “THE SMALLEST, TINIEST, DINKIEST, MOST RIDICULOUS, ABSURD, MINI-DEMI-PSEUDO-SILLYHOUSE IN WASHINGTON.”

In 2009, Washington Post columnist and American two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gene Weingarten took a tour of the home. He wrote that the structure was built around 1920, was once "some sort of shop," and "[stood] out from the other houses on the block like a Barbie doll in a police lineup."

Inside, there is surprisingly a washer and dryer, a renovated bathroom, security system, and a kitchen with new tile, a microwave, stove, fridge, and a sink. There is also off-street parking and a deep backyard.

The tenant pays for all utilities, except for water/sewer and yard service. No pets are allowed.

The current listing doesn’t have any photos available, but readers can find the photos from the previous Craigslist listing below.
