Living small doesn’t necessarily mean living with less. Case in point being this charming cottage in Eagle Rock, which manages to turn a tiny lifestyle into a year-round staycation. A light-filled floor plan sports an eat-in kitchen, living room and two bedrooms, while a detached garage has been reimagined as a creative studio. A tent for glamorous camping and a hammock set among fruit trees and garden beds on an adjacent lot offer the ideal place to unwind.
