Sure it’s cute – vintage, beachy – shabby-chic even; but I do believe that one of my bathrooms is bigger than this, um, house. (Does it even have a bathroom??)

But you know what they say – location is everything.  And being just a few feet away from the sea in the quaint town of Truro, Massachusetts makes this a desirable property.

(Wouldn’t you desire a little more for $575,000?)

Built in the year 1900, this property is being marketed as:

Part of Truro History! This one bedroom cottage with its twin sister studio were originally trap sheds for the historic cold storage processing industry. Charming only begins to describe this property located directly on the beach with views from Provincetown to Plymouth!

Another selling feature: in the event of a hurricane, just back your pickup truck onto the dunes and load up the house for evacuation!

If you have half a million dollars and want to spend it on a lobster trap storage shed, well, heh-heh, there’s a special place in the real estate hall of fame for you.
