Location seals the deal for Birch Harbor tiny house buyers
Most agreed it would take a special buyer to purchase the tiny house — 12 feet-by-12 feet — perched on a corner lot in the village of Birch Harbor.
And then along came Victor and MaryPat Leger, two artists, schoolteachers and independent thinkers who have a passion for the area.
Asked why they bought the house, the Legers replied in unison: “Location, location, location.”
They like being able to walk to Mc’s Marketplace for groceries and the ability to slip inside The Pickled Wrinkle for a brew and burger.
They also like the proximity to Acadia National Park on the Schoodic Peninsula.
“Where we live now in Winchester Center, Connecticut, we can’t walk to anything,” MaryPat said. “It’s a 15-minute drive to get a gallon of milk.”
