Location: Ogunquit, Maine
Just minutes from the water, this almost-tiny home is another kind of quintessential Maine getaway, and it sure is adorable. It’s located in southern part of the state in the teeny Ogunquit, a resort town meaning “beautiful place by the sea” that was only incorporated in 1980.
And measuring just 736 square feet, Canary Cottage, as it’s known, is just as small. Still, the 1935-built residence has everything you need, starting with a living room with brick fireplace and furnace, a sun room with a vaulted and beamed ceiling, a spacious eat-in kitchen, and not one but two bedrooms, plus a single bathroom.
There are hardwood floors throughout as well as tongue-and-groove paneling on the walls and the ceiling that give the house plenty of rustic charm. Outside, there’s more than enough space in the yard for al fresco dining and lawn activities. And don’t forget those yellow window shutters.
Located at 32 Constance Lane just steps away from Perkins Cove, Oarweed Cove, and all the restaurants, Canary Cottage makes for the ideal beach clubhouse. It’s offered at $425,000. It would sing with the right refresh.
