Anywhere else in California, this $989,000 home in Miraloma Park might be accused of being an overly ambitious garage. Here, though, it actually packs 4 bedrooms and 2 baths into 1,950 square feet. Could be lens trickery, but that living room looks pretty spacious. And if the exterior's a little bland, you can always pass it off as detached, cool, and contemporary. Just paint it gun-metal gray.
