To be considered a tiny home, a home usually has to be around 500 square feet or less—but in the Hamptons where estates seem more common than cottages, we usually set our definition of tiny at around 1,000 square feet. So when we saw that a North Sea home standing just 576 square feet in size came on the market, we got excited to talk about it.
Originally built in 1977, the home has been totally renovated and now hosts reclaimed hardwood floors from sustainable pine farms, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, and a wood-burning stove in the living room.
But the hardwood floors aren’t the only reclaimed detail in this tiny Southampton home—there’s also a 100-year-old barn door in one of the bedrooms, decorative wood details from a Sag Harbor home built 150 years ago, a bathroom light that came from a Florida ship, and an outdoor window feature that was originally in a Sagaponack house.
The open floorplan maximizes the little square footage that’s available, while two bedrooms and one full bathroom make the tiny home perfect for a single person or couple expecting the occasional guest.
Back in 2006, the property was purchased for $242,050. Considering the market value increase and the renovations done, the current price isn’t too bad. Located at 38 Lincoln Avenue in the North Sea neighborhood of Southampton, the 0.36-acre property is about a mile from the Conscience Point National Wildlife Refuge, and about four and a half miles from village shops and restaurants.
The property is represented by listing agent Julie Crowley of Saunders Real Estate.
