Price: $299,900
Size: 1,314 square feet
Bedrooms: 3
Baths: 1

Picture this: Instead of carrying groceries to your fifth-floor walk-up in Allston, you unload them from your car and into your pondside cottage in Weymouth. Sure, there’s no screeching Green Line in the ‘burbs, but on a good day (or a really good day, we suppose) the drive from Weymouth to Boston takes about 30 minutes.

This cabin for sale on Weymouth’s Whitman Pond could be the cottage Rat City dwellers dream about. It just needs a little TLC.

Situated on a dead-end street, the circa 1908 Cape is listed for $228 per square foot—not bad for a waterfront property just outside of Boston. Inside, there are two fireplaces—one with a mantel and built-ins—as well as three bedrooms and a good-sized kitchen. Sliding glass doors in the living room open to the back deck overlooking the pond.

The home is indeed small at 1,314 square feet, but that saves time on those necessary extensive renovations, right? Plus, the property offers wide-open space in the form of a pond, where the cottage’s new owners can swim, boat, or canoe just feet from the back deck.
