Exceptionally charming are the first two words that come to mind after catching a glimpse of this tiny New England cottage. Located in the sparsely populated town of Monroe, Maine, the 424-square-foot dollhouse lookalike is now on the market for $125,000.
The two-story, Victorian-style, single-family home was built in 1986 and sits on four acres. The home’s exterior is a muted combination of light blue siding accentuated by white trim. A stone walkway leads to the cottage entryway.
Inside, the first level contains a living room, kitchen, and bathroom; the second level holds the home’s only bedroom. The white interior and large windows invite natural light to illuminate the space while granting views of the surrounding grounds, which are filled with flower gardens, fruit trees, and stone walls. Further enhancing the tranquil surroundings is a nearby waterfall that borders the property. As the listing notes, the stream is owned by the town, which frees the owner up from any related tax obligations.
The cottage has wood framing and siding, private water service, and its own private sewer system. There’s also a separate cottage on the premises. The listing highlights its wood-clad interior, a composting toilet, and an outdoor shower. With a little bit of TLC, the bonus space would be suitable as an office, studio, or a simple spot for a single guest to crash.
Also, an interesting note: This cute, woodsy cottage happens to be located in Waldo County, the same place we spotted this rom-com-inspiring one-of-a-kind retreat for sale earlier this spring.
Over the past several years, the popularity of cottages has grown rapidly with potential buyers showing an increased interest in making holiday residences out of the cozy homes.
