    Beautiful woodwork!

  • Avatar vee January 20, 2017, 7:01 pm

    Lots of charm — love the wood and the locatio — perfect “getaway”!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 23, 2017, 8:30 am

      So true!

  • Avatar jm January 21, 2017, 11:13 am

    Great small house, great location (privacy, waterfront). You see examples of fine workmanship everywhere. And that’s important. To me, that means the same consideration (pretty good chance) took place behind the walls and under the house.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 23, 2017, 8:24 am

      Yes! Which is hugely important.

  • Avatar Laurie January 21, 2017, 11:17 am

    Beautiful! I’d love to live there

    Beautiful little home! And the location is idyllic.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 23, 2017, 8:18 am

      Seriously! Great locale.

  • Avatar Barbar January 21, 2017, 2:31 pm

    LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!! Unfortunately I do not have that kind of money avail. . . Perhaps, if the property were a bit bigger, you could invite a tiny house property renter in and the cost would not be so bad, eh?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 23, 2017, 8:18 am

      That’s certainly a thought!

  • Avatar Louise January 21, 2017, 2:41 pm

    640 sq feet certainly not a tiny home ! and $255,000. Is this site becoming a source for realtors to sell thru?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 23, 2017, 8:17 am

      No we just want to include homes for families as well — or people downsizing from HUGE homes. It’s all about living with less, but that looks different for everyone 🙂

  • Avatar ZACHARY E MOHRMANN January 21, 2017, 2:43 pm

    I’m not even going to waste my time explaining why I am not in favor of ad’s like this om the site, as I have done that already and it falls on deaf ears,,,!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 23, 2017, 8:17 am

      Not on deaf ears 🙂 I just hear just as many comments from people who love that we post them. We are trying to cater to as many tastes as possible! 🙂

  • Avatar ZACHARY E MOHRMANN January 21, 2017, 2:44 pm

    Don’t get me wrong it is a beautiful house….

  • Avatar Susanne January 21, 2017, 2:55 pm

    It’s also about going ” small” also since people may go to 600 sq ft from over 2,000 or more, it’s downsizing still, a great deal. I saw a guy in New York who DOWNSIZED from a 600 sq ft apartment to a 400 sq ft since the price was $1,000 per sq ft……:( Still saving money all around when going smaller. 🙂

  • Avatar Jayne Capane January 21, 2017, 3:49 pm

    I think this post was confusing. It showed a small home and stated the 600 some square feet, then there were pictures that clearly WERE NOT this home? It is difficult to compare and get ideas when they are scattered shots of various homes on wheels, homes and way different square footage. Disappointing

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 23, 2017, 8:06 am

      Hi Jayne, These are all pictures of the same house, rest assured. 🙂 No homes on wheels or with different square footage.

    • Avatar oxide January 23, 2017, 9:37 am

      Jayne, are you referring to the column of pictures on the right side of the screen? Those are not pictures of this property. Those are pictures of other houses that were featured on the blog. If you click on those other pictures it will take you to the blog post featuring that other home.

      • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 24, 2017, 6:50 am

        Oh thanks Oxide! I didn’t even think about those pictures too.

  • Avatar Jayne Capane January 21, 2017, 3:50 pm

    Oh and yes the $$$$ is SO OVERPRICED! Since when was scaling back gonna cost as much as a normal size home. If someone spends this on this home they just plain have more money than brains

    • Avatar Michael L January 21, 2017, 9:40 pm

      How rude!

      • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 23, 2017, 7:50 am

        Yes it is important to remember that housing prices differ all over the country. So what might be “way too much” where you live, might not even purchase a one bedroom home where I live. If other homes in the area are selling for $50K, then yes, it’s overpriced. But if other homes sell for $300K, it’s a deal 🙂

      • Avatar oxide January 23, 2017, 9:56 am

        It’s easy to do a little research. Go to Zillow and look at the history of this house, and the comparable properties nearby. For this house, somebody bought the land — 1/2 acre — for $60K in 2006, at the peak of the housing bubble. They then built the house in 2008. Now they’re trying to sell it all for $240K.

        Other properties on the waterfront: ~2300+ sq ft for sale for $320K-$370K (three of these), and a 350 sq ft mobile home sold for $105K in 2015. Waterfront land is about $50K per 1/2 acre lot. Prices drop once you get away from the water.

        In other words, this house appears to be VERY overpriced! You could pay 1/3 more you could get a $300K house that’s quadruple the size. Or, you could buy/build a $70K tiny house and park it on a $50K lot, for $120K total.

        Yes, the woodwork is nice, but not THAT nice.

  • Avatar Michael L January 21, 2017, 9:36 pm

    Actually… look closely, it appears to be a 3 room house. And if you’re someone going from $600k, 3k sq ft house… this is downsizing! Unless you know what the comps are in this neighborhood, I’m curious how you know it’s “overprised?” Or did you mean it’s not in your budget?

  • Avatar ROSEE January 23, 2017, 11:42 am

    Absolutely gorgeous! Though this doesn’t look like a tiny house, love the all around workmanship. Beautiful!

  • Avatar nadiya byelyakova January 23, 2017, 2:00 pm

    Boa tarde! Eu tenho oportunidade comprar uma casa pequenina, para vier em Portugal?


  • Avatar Ynot January 23, 2017, 4:51 pm

    I love how people try to dictate what should and should not be on someone else’s website. Thanks for your negative comments, you really brightened my day.

    PS, I really do enjoy seeing all the various sizes and price ranges. Thank you, Alex and Natalie.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 24, 2017, 6:27 am

      Thank you Ynot 🙂

  • Avatar Carol Perry January 24, 2017, 9:23 pm

    Wow! What a gorgeous home! Beautiful scenery surrounding it!?

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie January 25, 2017, 8:25 am

      It’s stunning. I want the land hehe.

  • Avatar Carol February 6, 2017, 12:15 pm

    Love it! Looks like my ideal home and in a great location!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie C. McKee February 7, 2017, 7:37 am

      Yes 🙂 Stunning!
