A 268-square-foot house in Modjeska Canyon on the market for $ 324,000 has found a buyer.

The micro house, built in 1930, has one bedroom and bathroom, a kitchen and living room, plus an unfinished basement area.

And the buyer? He’s 6 feet, 4 inches tall, according to seller Debra Pardee.

“He can’t fit into the queen sized, built-in bed and barely fits in the shower,” she said.

The house is in escrow, so the deal hasn’t closed yet.

But apparently, the buyer isn’t short on ideas.

“They will either turn the living room into the bedroom and the bedroom into the living room, or else they may sleep downstairs,” Pardee said of the man and his wife. “They already have an outdoor kitchen planned for the back patio area.”

Did we mention that a Sycamore tree juts through the house? Luckily, it doesn’t intrude into any of the liveable square footage.

While the agents, Charles Gilbert and Sam Smith of Beach Cities Real Estate, are accepting backup offers, Pardee remains hopeful.

“Escrow is always promising,” she said. “But it’s still too early to know.”
