For those seeking to be part of California’s infrastructure, this affordable one-bedroom home is quite the bargain.
Located on the side of a bridge over a shallow stream in the city of Alhambra, this troll-style abode is among Los Angeles County’s most affordable properties — and would-be deed-holders are clamoring to scoop it up.
“There are 10 properties in LA County under $250,000,” Compass agent Douglas Lee, who holds the $249,950 listing, told The Post of its appeal.
“It is unique and has drawn a lot of attention. This can easily be converted to a modern treehouse and then rented on Airbnb.”
In addition to its relative affordability in a brutal real estate market, the 462-square-foot domicile has also gotten a great deal of interest from those simply seeking a peek inside.
“I decided to just do open houses for an hour Saturday, and an hour Sunday,” Lee told local news outlet KTLA5.
“So even on that we had at least 40 to 50 groups within that hour coming because they were just curious to see.”
As well as having a quirky location and a palatable price tag, the waterfront unit also features a rooftop patio with almost the same square footage of the home, but separated by only a metal fence from the adjacent street.
Buyers beware: The one-bathroom pad has been vacant for nearly 20 years, the current owner having used it mostly for storage after buying it for just $72,000 in 2005, Lee told KTLA5.
“[He] basically was going to try and use it as like kind of a man cave, a place to just chill out, meditate or whatever. But he never really got around to that,” he said.
As a result of the non-use, a number of renovations are in order, including roughly $3,000 worth of mold abatement.
