Small House for Sale in Palo Alto, California

This 480-square-foot small house is up for sale in Palo Alto, California.

Built by New Avenue Homes it may just be what a lot of us are looking for in a house.

The design is made to be placed in the backyard of your current home so the price doesn’t include land. What’s for sale is the small house which you see here which would be delivered to your site.

There are a total of 7 rooms: bedroom, bathroom, walk-in closet, sleeping loft, kitchen, living room, and outdoor deck.

The small home features a stackable washer and dryer, compact air conditioning system, and a modern spiral staircase to the loft.

The exterior looks modern and has more than enough windows for natural lighting and ventilation. Let’s look inside:

Small and efficient duct-less air conditioner was installed which is what I recommend for tiny houses as well instead of the window units because you can place this on the tongue of the trailer. They’re more efficient and they look better.

Stackable washer and dryer was used in the walk in closet to conserve space.

    I like windows but this design has no overhang to shade that glass from the hot summer sun and would turn that house into an oven.

    They should have designed a shaded overhang porch on the front to allow only winter and early morning, late evening sun penetration.

    Windows are like having a big open hole in your house in winter. This design might work in moderate and warm climates but would be a mistake in colder climates.

    Proper window sizing is important in any home design!

      You couldn’t be more right! Good quality windows with proper shading is one of the most important aspects of a home’s design.

      I am the designer of the home and the plan is to have a big awning over the bedroom windows and both glass doors. These weren’t completed as this is a modular home that is already as wide as you can possibly ship down the highway.

      When it gets to its final location those awnings (or a trellis) should definitely be added.

      Last year we had the home in San Jose and set it with all the big windows facing north and only two small windows facing south. It stayed cool all summer long in San Jose. But now the home is in Palo Alto with all the glass facing south and there is a noticeable difference in how warm it gets. But – as long as you keep the south facing door and window closed, then the double paned windows with Low E coating keep it cool inside. If you open the door, the sun will roast the wood floors and heat the place up in no time. It’s amazing what good quality glass can do.

        It would be cute with those 1940s bungalow style awnings maybe is grey and red to match the siding. I wonder how this would work in Colorado, up in the mountains?

      Hi, Lamar & Kevin! I would use a black window film pull down shade and use the hot space to dry clothes. (have it face the sun in winter). Smiles, AnnieinKC

    Gorgeous! Just when I think I’ve found the perfect design, I see this one. Good thing I’m not ready to downsize yet. But I am simplifying.
