In this post I’m showing you a one of a kind 765 sq. ft.
oceanfront cottage near the beach for sale that was built using plans from The Small House Catalog.
It has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom and sits on a 7,900 sq. ft. lot on the coast of Washington.
One of the bedrooms is downstairs and the other one is upstairs with some extra loft space too.
There’s a covered front porch and a sun deck in the back that faces a small garden with blueberries, flowers, asparagus, and more.
UPDATE: This property is NOT oceanfront as originally stated when I wrote this article. Sorry about the confusion. The house is across the street from the beach on the Georgia Strait and has deeded beach rights and private beach access but it’s not waterfront.
