Yes there are definitely homes with guest homes available. Some could be as small as a 2 bed 1 bath home with a detached studio apartment in Plaza-Midwood, all the way up to the homes on Bonds Grove Church Rd where one home is about 30,000sf with 2 guest homes - a 3,000sf and a 4,000sf home.

The issue you may have with finding what you're looking for is because there is no specific field in our MLS system that allows you to search by guest home. At the least, an agent would have to do a keyword search through the remarks section. But even then, that's assuming the listing agent mentions it in the limited remarks section.

A good agent should know how to look this type of property up through the public tax records and then cross-reference with the active listings. An even better one would know how to contact the ones that aren't listed for sale to see if they would sell.

I'd love to help you out in any way I can. Call, text or email me anytime.

Good afternoon, Clarence
Local Zoning does not often allow a guest house on a lot - it is considered a second unit. You will usually find this type of situation on an area zoned for multifamily, but built out as single family. Then, zoning may allow of more than 3 or 4 units per acre and more than one unit per lot. If you appreciate an answer, please give thumbs up.

Yes... there are a lot. I'm listing one next week that has a garage with a cute apartment and heated pool! But there is a great house on Shasta that also has a cute guest house. You can have your agent look for you.. If you are not working with an agent let me know... I'll hook you up with a good one.
