A tiny cottage on stilts, one of Australia’s smallest and most unusual houses, has found a buyer.
The blue one-bedroom property at 8 Pelican Street in Innisfail, Queensland, is now under offer at $95,000, after being listed by Raine & Horne for $99,000.
It’s quite possibly Australia’s littlest permanent home – as opposed to tiny houses not on foundations, moveable studios, pods on wheels and granny flats – with about 110-square-metres of internal space.
Situated on a level 1067-square-metre block, the wee weatherboard home is perched on top of concrete piers and is need of a renovation with the interiors uninhabitable.
The agent told Nine that the house is “on stilts” as it was moved from another local block. The owner initially had plans to build on to the property, but these fell through.
The agent was complimentary of the listing, describing it as a “potential gold mine” that can be transformed into a weekender or a “downsizer’s permanent home”, after a restoration.
Wooden palings from one side of the house have come loose and the interiors feature holes in the walls with exposed electrical cords. There’s just a shell of a kitchen left.
A fridge, oven and mattress remain, as well as a lone basin on the floor of one room.
The space underneath the main house can be transformed into a studio, with a second shower.
