Gardeners delight in a 288 sq ft tiny house

Gardeners can spend all day outside anyway

This isn’t the tiniest tiny house, but at 288 square feet there certainly aren’t many that are smaller. You can fit a lot of detailed design in a tiny house, but it looks like the owners of this property put almost all of the effort into what’s growing on the land.

Where others see a confusion of foliage, horticulturists can see an abundance of rare plants, including rare trees—we assume. The growth is organic, varied, over-flowing, and colorful. You may need to compile a catalog of the population of the 2.35 acres. Don’t be surprised if they already created one. Expect lots of pollinators, fragrances, and opportunities for flower arrangements.

Also, expect a lot of effort, trimming, pruning, weeding, and battling invasive plants and bugs. It looks like they’ve done so, and created a destination for Master Gardeners. It wouldn’t be a surprise to learn that the seller has such a title. Supporting all of those efforts are a series of sheds, fences, and probably a compost pile or three.

Throughout the property are places to relax and enjoy the result. Patios, walkways, decks, and trellises frame the foliage. At least one deck leads to a dock for one of the ponds, a natural place for a swim.

We won’t ignore the house, which has one bedroom and one bathroom and yet has a second story (or at least an upstairs window), and a couple of side wings. One wing could be a semi-sunroom. With a property like this, a mudroom is a must.

Inside are the basics, and possibly not much more. It won’t be a property for every gardener, but for some the house is inconsequential. The cabin’s exterior has a rustic appeal, which may be designed as a backdrop to the garden more than home sweet home. Will a fan of foliage buy it at the listing price of $375,000?
