With clumps of brownish snow lining the sidewalks, it’s tough to envision escaping to a cottage on the coast right now. But those with active imaginations might see the genius in buying this adorable little summer home in February. With some elbow grease, the place could be good to go just in time for seasonable temps.

Tucked on a side street in the village of Onset, the home is, in a word, tiny. At 508 square feet, it makes just enough room for a kitchen, a living room, two tiny bedrooms, and a pint-sized sun porch. Around back, a sizable fenced-in backyard is fit for hosting summertime cookouts—or stashing a few kayaks.

A new coat of paint, a revamped bathroom, and a handful of other cosmetic fixes are in order. They’re a small price to pay, though, for being a few minutes’ walk from the Broad Cove and the shops and restaurants of downtown Onset.
