Mint-green, midcentury, and (once) mobile? Yes, please!

This is everything we love combined into one adorable parcel: a converted 1950s vintage trailer “tiny” home—in Palm Springs. But that’s not all. Its main mint-green frame sticks out from a slightly larger concrete body and breaks out into a cheeky grin, behind which is a charming period kitchen with all the pantry space you could ever need.

You can enter the surprisingly roomy home through a retro door off the kitchen or sliding glass doors that open onto a spacious living room and dining area. Beyond this space is an additional lounge—with a freestanding vintage cone fireplace, of course— that opens up via another set of sliding glass doors to a small courtyard.

The property also features a spacious bedroom with ample closet space and two bathrooms. It even includes a carport with laundry room, which makes us highly skeptical of the claim that the residence measures 480 square feet. (Perhaps that square-footage is for the trailer part alone?)

Located in the 55-years-and-up community of Safari Park, which, according to the listing, is known for “throwback” activities like shuffleboard and square dancing, the formerly mobile home at 82 Monica Street is available for $55,000.
