Built in 1914 as a worker’s cottage, this Gothic Revival home in Newton’s Waban village is a rare find. The whimsical abode was recently renovated and boasts a covered porch, a south-facing deck, and a sunny living room with a wood stove.

While the place is certainly tiny, there’s plenty of room for both work and play. Upstairs, one of the bedrooms features a lofted studio space, and the home’s basement offers additional room for a workshop or office. A one-car garage on the property is reserved for the unit, though the yard is shared with the adjoining home. An addition to the worker’s cottage was built this year—it’s in the same style as the cottage and is also for sale for $1.5 million.
