Looking up at the hills of Mt. Washington from the east, say, from Highland Park, there are some dwellings that appear to be hanging right off the hillsides. One of those structures is this little, less-than-900-square-foot house, with a perch that affords great views and outdoor spaces (decks, patios) that offer lots of opportunities to enjoy them. The 11,000-square-foot lot dwarfs the wee two-bedroom, two-bathroom residence, which the listing calls out as “the most expensive 813 square foot home in town, and worth every dime.”

The place’s compact kitchen has a fancy Viking stove and custom cabinets; the bathrooms hold high-end fixtures, limestone, and “Wai-kai handmade tile.” The living room has sliding doors that “disappear into the wall” and open up the place, literally, while the three patios are stone paved and include a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen area. Originally built in 1924, the little house on a big lot is asking $1.888 million.
