About the Property
1920's cottage with modern kitchen, bath and new queen bed
The 420-square-foot house at Snow Hill Street is the North End’s tiniest standalone single-family. It’s also one of the 10 tiniest houses in Boston, period.
Despite its diminutive size, Snow Hill certainly packs a lot in. There’s a bedroom loft, for one thing, and a full kitchen. There is also a full bathroom and a living room. There’s even a fireplace and a private patio.
From the cast iron spiral staircase that takes you up to the cozy bedroom loft, to The living room adorned with old world rough pine paneling and a brick fireplace.
Located in the heart of Boston's historic North End, this single cottage, flooded with natural light from the skylights, was originally used as a sculptor's studio in the early 1960's.
For the past 95 years this property has been one of the most charming residences in the North End.
The modern full kitchen is ready to serve a delicious home made meal, that can be eaten either outside on the beautiful flower designed patio or inside on the new glass dining table, either way you choose, you dine in comfort.
The dining area seats four and the living area has a double recliner, and an antique rocking chair, where you can sit back and relax as you watch the Sony 40" smart TV, or listen to our collection of music Cd's, or you can watch a movie on the Blu ray player with the collection of movies we have available.

About: I spent the early part of my youth living in the North End. My family owned a home just up the street from the Cottage on Hull St. I attended Saint Anthony's, Saint Mary's and Christopher Columbus High School all located in the North End. We attended Sunday mass at either Saint Leonard's or Saint Mary's churches, My mother loved the children's Choirs at these churches and we would split our time between them. My family moved to the South Shore in the late sixties due to my fathers job change. I have always loved the North End and returned there to visit my Aunts and walk the neighborhood streets every chance I could.
Why North End, Boston, MA, USA:
The Enchanted Cottage is right off the Freedom Trail and right around the corner from the Old North church, within walking distance to everything that you came to Boston to experience. This cottage is not just a rental but a family home that has been part of my family for over 40 years. It is unique in that it is a single family home and not an apartment, it also has an outside patio and does not require you to climb two or three flights of stairs.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Enchanted Cottage is a single family home with a wonderful patio, where you can sit out side and enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening glass of wine, where you can enjoy a conversation with the friendly residents of the area or the Boston visitors who always stop and ask about the cottage. The 420-square-foot house at 54 Snow Hill Street is the North End’s tiniest standalone single-family. It’s also one of the 10 tiniest houses in Boston, period. Despite its diminutive size, Snow Hill certainly packs a lot in. There’s a bedroom loft, for one thing, and a full kitchen. There is also a full bathroom and a living room. There’s even a fireplace and a private patio.
