I have been wanting to showcase more older small/tiny houses and Lindsey from Portland, Oregon wrote me about a friend of hers who is selling a Vintage Bungalow-style Cottage and I thought it fit into the style of home I was looking to share with you.
I want to thank Lindsey for getting the nice pictures to share with us and I hope this gives you some idea of what you might find in your location of an older small home that might be just what you are looking for.
This bungalow was built in 1925. It has about 500 square feet of finished space: a cozy living room with fireplace, one bedroom, an amazingly compact kitchen (with miniature vintage stove and minifridge) and a surprisingly spacious bathroom (clawfoot tub!). There’s also a mudroom by the driveway that’s perfect for kicking off your boots and parking your bike, and a partially-finished basement (about 200 square feet) that holds the gas furnace as well as washer and dryer (included).
The house is located at 7905 N. Seward Avenue, in a quiet neighborhood, on a roomy corner lot with a big beautiful fir tree and a gazebo. It’s within 5 blocks of 6 bus lines. It’s listed at $175,000 by Vintage Real Estate.
Thank you Lindsey for bringing this to my attention and sending the nice pictures that really showcase this house.
