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?
