Barely bigger than a shed, a 70-year-old cottage on a South End corner lot is for sale for $2 million.

“I can’t believe it,” said Ruth Griffin, a Portsmouth resident since 1938.

The sale is really about the 0.34-acre lot which has frontage on Marcy, Pray and Partridge streets, said broker Liz Levey-Pruyn, from Remax Shoreline. But the little building, which someone now calls home, will have to be reviewed by the Historic District Commission if a buyer plans any change.

“You can’t just take it down, or move it,” Levey-Pruyn said.

Listed locally, as well as in The New York Times and Boston Globe, the property is described as “the last large lot available in Portsmouth’s Historic and highly sought-after South End.” The listing, which went to market last week, notes the property includes, “the infamous candy store cottage.”
