A slice of the Cape for under $130,000.

Since no one summers on Cape Cod to spend time indoors, you might call this cozy Eastham cottage at 62 Hay Road the perfect retreat. While the 348-square-foot spot makes no bones about its tight quarters, it offers a full kitchen with dining nook, a living room, one bedroom, and a full bath (tub not included.) The front door opens to knotty pine floors and a stone patio extends the living space. Most importantly, the clapboard-sided home is listed at $129,900. As part of a condo community of 11 similar homes, a neighborhood association fee of $199 per month is required, but it covers lawn mowing, cable, and trash removal.

“Homes in this neighborhood rarely turn over,” says listing agent Samantha Baronousky-Chin. In this case, the owner, a strong supporter of the small house movement, lives in Oklahoma and is not on the cape as often as she’d like. The cottage is a bike ride away from Eastham town center and Orleans.
