A tiny green Montauk cottage with a simple though charming approach to curb appeal has recently listed in south-of-the-highway Hither Hills for $895,000. Though neutral exteriors are often preferred, we love how this home’s brick walkway, front porch, and landscaping complement the mint siding for a cozy vibe.
Though the home is tiny at just 750 square feet, there are three bedrooms inside, so there’s plenty of room for a few guests. For those who don’t need the extra space for visitors, either room could work well as office, playroom, or storage space.
An open floor plan and cathedral ceilings help to maximize the square footage, while light bamboo floors, white walls, and skylights help to attract natural light into the home.
Originally built in 1950, the home looks to be in good shape. The kitchen is a bit outdated and could use a face lift, but for the most part the space seems updated and almost totally move-in ready. The downside is that the tiny 0.12-acre property doesn’t leave much room for a pool or expansion. But sitting south of the highway, the property is just a half-mile from Hither Hills beach and is afforded deeded beach access.
