Fixer-Upper Friday: A Tiny House in Revere
A salt marsh is this bungalow's backyard.
48 Flint Street, Revere
Size: 657 square feet
A tiny house by the sea. Summer retreats don’t get more 2018 than that.
Nestled on a side street in Revere’s Oak Island neighborhood, the three-room bungalow is less of a fixer-upper and more of a blank slate. Sure, there are a lot of improvements to be made to the pint-sized home for sale, but at least you don’t have to built it from scratch, like this teen in Brookline is doing. Instead, the interior is completely customizable—the empty kitchen and living area just need a unifying vision.
It doesn’t look like much now, we know. But once the debris is cleared out and some space-saving storage solutions are built in, the house will start shaping up into a home. The property’s rather small yard is pretty cute, too, and the backyard overlooks a salt marsh. Plus, you can stash your beach gear in the rear shed, and maybe set up a hammock for lounging during breezy afternoons. Did we mention Revere Beach (and the sauce-slathered delicacies of Kelly’s Roast Beef) are only a 10-minute walk from the front door?
