Scooping up a little pink house by the sea for under $300,000 sounds almost too good to be true—and in a way, it is. This two-bedroom for sale in Hull is steps from the sandy stretches of Nantasket Beach. It’s indeed little, pink, and moderately affordable. But the catch? The house doesn’t have heat.

A heating system, of course, is the most glaring of the updates needed. And yet, the extremely adorable 1900s cottage has a lot going for it. While its fixtures and finishes aren’t new or sparkling, they give the place character. The home’s hardwood floors are in good shape, as are the original doors and exposed beams. A stained glass window in the bathroom adds vintage charm, and a sizable pantry off the kitchen makes plenty of room for all of the summer barbecue essentials.

Outside, there’s a small wraparound porch that offers glimpses of the ocean, and around back, a small backyard complete with a clothes line teems with potential. Though there’s work to be done, recent updates include a two-year-old water heater, a three-year-old roof, and 100 amp electrical service.
