Inside the Tiniest Cottage For Sale on Cape Cod

New, 25 comments

No, we haven't started featuring listings for sheds. This wee West Yarmouth abode - which could easily cause a shudder amongst claustrophobics, micro-living haters and/or McMansion lovers - is the tiniest cottage for sale on Cape Cod.

Well, that was quick. Anyway, this 162-square-footer (yes, you read that right) was built in 1950 and is part of a 24-unit complex that's chock full of diminutive digs. Here's how the brokerbabble sums up Unit 16:

Good things come in small packages! Beautifully renovated year round freestanding condo featuring a custom kitchen cabinet with copper sink and French country faucet. New roof, hardwood floors, updated bath, coppered ceiling, loft and many clever details. Fabulous Nantucket Sound Beaches are within 1.5 miles. Shopping and dining are all nearby. Rented weekly during Summer for $600. with rave reviews. Available immediately to begin your escape to the Cape! We know that last sentence has some of you thinking that there are people trying to escape from spaces this size, but we looked it up and it turns out that prison cells are actually much smaller. Either way, while the listing doesn't mention the HOA fee, a larger (as in, a whopping 210-sq.-ft.) neighboring cottage is asking $94,500 with $175 monthlies. As for lil' Unit 16, the asking price is $69,900, shoehorn not included.
