Location: Clinton, Connecticut
Not quite a tiny house, this simple, gable-roof cottage in Clinton, Connecticut is still as cute as a button and historic, too. Built around 1755, the 1,313-square-foot, two-bedroom-two-bath “antique” home features white wood siding and the rustic ceiling beams of the original structure, but also combines the old with new in a recent renovation that updates it for modern living.
A spacious, bright, and airy kitchen with marble counters and Viking appliance and a living room with what appears to be the original fireplace occupy the first floor. And though the listing photos don’t show it very well, a master suite (which is currently being used as a study and playroom, at least as far as the photos show) and bathroom with clawfoot tub are also on the first floor. On the second (attic) floor are two additional rooms that are currently being used bedrooms but could easily be converted to an office or dressing room. The wide backyard features a pebbled patio, fire pit, and a shed for storage. Located a few minutes from the Metro North and Shoreline east trains at 11 Pearl Street, it’s asking $360,000.
