Charming 1956 home in sought-after location

It's Micro Week at Curbed, and we're peeking into some small places and the people who love them. This bungalow certainly qualifies, although its price is out of compliance with the affordability that most advocates view as a necessary component of micro-living.

Exteriors of the shingled bungalow look to be in good shape if not particularly exciting—although the pergola in front probably adds quite a bit of curb appeal when it's covered with green vines and leaves (which it isn't in the photos). The interior, with its white walls and bright, aquamarine cabinets and counters, looks completely redesigned; it also features polished concrete floors, some vaulted ceilings, and a significant breakfast-bar chandelier.

The home measures 768 square feet and has two bedrooms and one bathroom, as well as a generous back deck, fenced yard, vegetable garden beds, and new landscaping in front. Its Clarksville location puts it close to happening restaurants, the neighborhood grocery store, and downtown, so the buyer might not need a car. Still, is that enough to offset the steep price of this compact, simple home?
