It’s off the market now, but this little gem was on for sale as recently as this summer for $1,199,000.

Sure it has a stellar location in Montecito, California with over and acre of property. And it even has a historic pedigree – being hand-built and originally owned by members of the Bohemian Mountain Drive Artist Colony. But $1.2 million for a brick hut?

Heck ya, look at this sweet thing!

The stonework and the elfin nature of it reminds me of those wonderful Earl Young homes in northern Michigan.

Built in 1970, this tiny abode still has a very strong hippie vibe courtesy of the local bohemian artists.

Look at the rustic bathroom:

Keep in mind just how tiny this place is – 510 square feet!

I hear the real estate market in Santa Barbara is red hot – so maybe $1.2 million is not so bad after all.

Plus, the listing touts: “Very friendly neighbors, Many are artists, professors, actors or doctors.

My kind of ‘hood!  🙂
