Texas-Style Tiny Living in This Adorable Marfa Home

The home's exterior.

Looking for a Texas hideaway in an art oasis? This 450-square-foot home located deep in the high desert town of Marfa, TX, might be your answer. There’s nothing flashy in its adobe walls and simple construction, but it’s a beautiful home with historic appeal.

“It’s simple, clean, and modern, but has maintained the original Marfa adobe,” says Meghan Gerety, a sales associate at listing brokerage firm Livingston Real Estate.

Listed for $ 185,000, the one-bedroom home is ideal for a first-time home buyer, or for savvy buyers looking to invest in rental property. “Marfa has a strong vacation rental market, and I think it would easily pay for itself,” Gerety says.

Don’t let the home’s tiny size deter you: The home is easily livable full time. The floor plan offers separate (and even roomy!) spaces for sitting, eating, and sleeping—all filled with light from their large windows. You won’t find any rooms squashed together to serve multipurpose uses.

You can relax in the living room, with its restored wood floors from its 1930s construction. You can enjoy your meals in the surprisingly large kitchen, where butcher block counters top open-air cabinets along two walls. The kitchen even has space for a dining nook.

But why would you need unused space inside when the backyard is so inviting? In Marfa, where average high temperatures are at least 60 degrees Fahrenheit, even in the winter, having outdoor space for barbecues and parties is essential. When the sun gets too hot, you can sit in the shade on the front porch or the back porch.

The front yard is landscaped with gravel and native plants and trees, and prickly pear cacti line the quirky iron fence circling the property.

There’s even a small aluminum shed in the back that’s perfectly situated for a pub-shed conversion.

“It’s hard to find a Marfa home in this price range that’s move-in ready,” Gerety says. The owners recently finished a number of upgrades, including a complete electrical modernization, on-demand water heater, and new Mid-Century Modern–inspired light fixtures.

The home’s white adobe interiors are a blank canvas, perfect for building personality. Currently, the home is peppered with pops of dusty orange color and modernist art, but you can go as bold or minimalist as you like—either would suit this tiny home well.

However, this being Marfa, there’s a bit of artsy built-in color inside. The bathroom sports a “very cute” peppy pink floor, which Gerety says visitors have gone gaga for.
