It's the last week of December and thus, time to make up a bunch of awards for the best, worst and most absurd things that happened in Cape & Islands real estate, architecture and neighborhoods. Here now, your 2014 Curbed Awards.
It's time to squeeze into Cape Cod's tiniest listings of 2014. From a wicked wee 162-square-feet to a rather roomy 296-square-feet, here are 10 microhomes that will no doubt cause a shudder amongst claustrophobics, micro-living haters and/or McMansion lovers.
Kicking off in Truro, this cute 296-square-foot cottage condo with expansion potential (boo!) was listed for $249,000.
Currently a lovely little cottage, this Chatham "investment property" has "growth opportunity" to add a two-bedroom rental. The 288-square-footer hit the market asking $299,000 and is now hoping for $274,000.
Water views, access to a private beach on Cape Cod Bay and 272-sq.-ft. were looking for $199,000 in Truro.
Breakfast in bed is available in this wicked tiny, as in 252-sq-ft., West Yarmouth cottage condo for $79,900.
Behold, beachy micro-living overlooking Cape Cod Bay. This adorable 250-sq.-ft. cottage condo at Truro's Sutton Place was asking $299,000
Located next to Truro Vineyards (!!), this 234-sq.-ft. studio condo - with the smallest kitchen sink ever - hit the market in early May for $99,000 and by the end of the month, had sold for $92,000. Cheers!
When we wrote about this Commercial Street condo back in March, the 198-square-footer had been pricechopped down to $219,900. By June, a buyer had squeezed into the place for $196,000.
Built in 1900, this "sweet attached cottage, known as Cormorant offers a piece of increasingly rare old Provincetown charm." The asking price for the 186-square-footer is $245,000.
This 182-sq.-ft. West Yarmouth cottage lacks a full bathroom, but at least there's an outdoor shower with hot and cold. Asking price is now $89,000.
Finally, to the tiniest cottage for sale on Cape Cod. The wee West Yarmouth abode, all 162-sq.-ft., is yours for $69,900.
