Think of Magnolia as a tony neighborhood with large houses and great history. Here’s a twist, a 610 square foot tiny house on a tiny 1,861 square-foot lot has come onto the market at $479,950. Do the math and get a price per square-foot of $786.
It was built in 1953, but inside and outside look new. If the floors are original, they’ve recently been refinished, considering their shine. A simple and classic paint two-tone paint scheme subtly highlights wood framework and trim. Recessed lights are most likely more recent.
As usual, remodels are most obvious in the kitchen. Appliances, counters, fixtures, and back splash all look new. Check to see if they’re under warranty. It is a simple layout that has room for a large fridge and lots of storage. A dining area fits into a bump-out that brings in more light through a exterior door’s window. Small spaces make use of every opportunity.
Second place for obvious changes goes to the bathroom. Here again, modern fixtures fit in well. The same back splash pattern shows up here, too. One strip accents the wide tiles that make up the shower surround. Note the deep storage beside the bath.
The bedroom slots the bed into a notch, adds a sitting area, and closet equipped with a sliding door. No need to make room for swinging doors.
Every square foot outside has been tended with landscaping, fencing, decking, and walkways to create a manicured piece.
The house comes together well as a minimalist package. All of the pieces work well together, and share the valuable space. The fact that it all sits in Magnolia adds that extra touch that means it may not sit on the market for long.
