The three-story home located at 75 1/2 Bedford Street is well known in New York City for its size—it's just 990-square-feet. It's off the market once again, recently selling for $3.25 million.

The Greenwich Village home's widest rooms are just 8 feet and 4 inches wide, but that never stopped big names from calling the place home. Pulitzer Prize-winner Edna St. Vincent Millay, who originated the phrase "My candle burns at both ends," lived in the narrow home from 1923 to 1924. Actors John Barrymore and Cary Grant also resided at 75 1/2 Bedford Street.

The home's history has helped its value incraese over the past two decades. It was purchased for $270,000 in 1994 before being sold for $1.6 million in 2000 and $2.175 million in 2010. It reappeared on the market with the asking price doubling to $4.3 million, but that dipped back down to just under $3.5 million.
