Attention Tiny Home Lovers, welcome to the most adorable home in Boxborough! Lovingly renovated, this one bedroom home is the perfect condo alternative for anyone wanting an efficient space yet their own private land to enjoy. Improvements over recent years include a complete structural rehab, new roof, windows, electrical and plumbing systems, flooring in the main body of the house (Douglas Fir floors remain in the bedroom and bath!), plus they updated the kitchen and bathroom. Don’t be afraid of the electric heat, the home is super-insulated and Littleton Electric has the lowest rates in the state. All appliances convey, there really isn’t anything to do but move in! Excellent location, it’s a short walk to West Acton Village on a nice day, and all major commuting routes are in easy driving distance.

    Lovely TH cabin in a gorgeous setting. Looks so big on the inside comparing to outside. I would say that ceramic tiles would be a whole lot better for the bathroom floor. When the wood gets wet, mold sets in and it is not good for health.
    Anyhow, another great TH that I wouldn’t mind living in.

      I am in love with this house 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team

      Totally disagree with the slate floor comment for the bathroom. Wood is perfectly fine if it is sealed. And most certainly looks like that from the photos.

      And… sealing the wood is way, way cheaper than putting slate down. Besides, slate ALWAYS feels cold… brrrr to that in the middle of winter.

    Nice, but waaay too close to the house behind it. If I’m going to live in a cottage in the woods, I don’t want to be looking at my neighbor’s house…especially through my bedroom window.

      Ya this house is only about 20 minutes from my in-laws and is an amazing price for a Massachusetts home in such good condition, but I wish it wasn’t so close to neighbors! — Tiny House Talk Team

    Sweet cabin—so old-fashioned on the outside and modern on the inside. The only thing I would change would be to put in a free-standing fireplace in the living room, a full deck off the dining room, and ramp access to both doors. Other than that, I love everything about this cabin.

    I am 70-years-old and when I was a young girl, I was a Camp Fire Girl. The summer I attended camp in New England, our cabins looked so much like these. It would have been nice, though, if they had been so modern inside, especially with an indoor bathroom. It would have saved us those scary trips to the bathroom cabin in the middle of the night. 🙂

      Those sound like perfect additions to make 🙂 And I love that you were a Camp Fire Girl! — Tiny House Talk Team

    3/4 acre lot, house, and within easy commute of Lowell and occasional commute to Boston. $175K is a very good price.

    Plus, I see a crawlspace/basement, which is good for storage or storm shelter.

      Yes if I had the money for the down payment and was moving back to the area soon, I would have purchased it on the spot! Such a great price. — Tiny House Talk Team

    Ah well, just went and had a look at the listing and it has been delisted, just 31 minutes prior. I suppose in the States that’s jargon for it’s been sold.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie November 30, 2016, 10:18 am

      🙁 So sad! No surprise. At that price it was perfect. — Tiny House Talk Team

    I think this house is beautiful, love the wood. I also think I am the only person in the entire country who is not into the open concept design. I love wood, real wood in cabins and separate rooms. Ah well, guess I’d better go back to the 50’s where I belong! LOL

      Hahaha this comment was great 🙂 — Tiny House Talk Team
