One of the tiny workers' cottages built as an experiment in affordable housing by philanthropist Alfred Tredway White in 1878 is on the market for a less-affordable $1.4 million. The two-plus bedroom home is built in the Romanesque Revival style and has hardwood floors, exposed brick, beamed ceilings, and a private garden. The 1,104-square-foot home at 8 Warren Place is one of 34 cottages on a block-through stretch between Warren and Baltic streets in Cobble Hill known as the Warren Place Mews.
In September 2013 a similar, but renovated, workers cottage in the Warren Place Mews appeared on the market for $1.4 million. Before that, a different cottage sold for $1.3 million after just three weeks on the market in June 2013.
