DC's Small Homes: How Low Do They Now Go?: Figure 1
1121 24th Street NW

Back in 2009, UrbanTurf highlighted one of the smallest homes listed on the market in DC at the time -- a studio in Dupont Circle.

A continued fascination about living spaces this small, coupled with the solutions to living space limitations offered in Dwell magazine's latest issue, made us want to highlight diminutive dwellings currently on the market in DC.

The Chastleton in Dupont Circle has a 320 square-foot studio up for sale. The historic building is home to at least one of DC's hip young staffers and comes with a fitness room and rooftop lounge. For those that don't need that much space, a 307 square-foot studio is available in the West End at 1121 24th Street NW. Currently a second home, the studio comes with luxurious amenities and an extra deep bathtub to settle into when you're feeling claustrophobic.

Taking DC's smallest living space honors, however, is a 266 square-foot studio just east of Union Station, which "needs some love", according to the listing. It is on the market for $260,000.

If you are currently living in less than 375 square feet and staying sane, UrbanTurf would love to hear from you for an upcoming piece. Drop us a line at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

    The Chastleton studio is adorable! Anyone know where the furniture is from?

    $260k for a tiny studio near union station that needs love is OUTRAGEOUS. There are so many better options at lower price points. I bought a 1BR condo last year in SW -- totally redone in the $230s.

    I thought my 500 sq ft counts as a small space. Guess not. Jeez!

    Why is it that my studio in SW cost $60K less and its twice the size?
