A price of $198,500 sounds like a condo in Seattle, or just a 20 percent down payment on many King County homes. In Everett, it gets you a two bedroom, one bathroom, 592 square foot tiny house. How does that fit with your commute?
Cute happens, and so do the opportunities to remodel or live retro. From the street, the house is tidy and includes details that many pay extra for on a new house. The small covered porch may not fit a hammock, but a chair or two may squeeze in. At least you and your front door are dry. A pair of modest sized windows seem at home in a house built in 1925. Check out the top window. Is that an attic, crawlspace, or a tiny bonus room for a tiny house.
It would be hard to ignore the carpet. The mottled wall-to-wall was designed that way. Maybe you’ll find it’s just right. Maybe you’ll decide to dig underneath and see if there’s more appealing flooring undercover.
The same’s true in the kitchen, ready to use, and large for a tiny house. And yet, an opportunity to either join the stainless steel/granite counter crowd or define your own style.
Tiny houses have always required efficiency. One of the two bedrooms has built-in storage that is a great example that has survived decades, probably because it has worked. The bathroom is like the rest, serviceable, and ready for an upgrade.
Included in the price is a 3,920 square foot lot with a fenced yard and a garage. Small, but luxurious compared to a condo. Tiny house fans, is this tiny and cute enough?
