When Old Sturbridge Village was seeking a small house to add to its collection - they had such a hard time finding one that they ended up building one. This, despite that fact that houses under 800 square feet once made up a quarter of our housing stock in the early 19th century.
|Small House at Old Sturbridge Village, MA|
|Rose covered Sconset cottage|
This home on Harbor Street in Sandwich has a long history and was once used as a dwelling house for workers in the Boston and Sandwich glass factory. Neighborhood folklore hints at an even longer history for this house - it is rumored to have been moved here in the early 18th century. The exposed beams with bark on them in the kitchen suggests an early date for this home. It has much to offer in a great neighborhood, walking distance to ice cream, restaurants, shops and the beach. No doubt - it needs work, but it CAN be saved. And at $130,000, there is room for restoration costs.
