This cottage is on the market in Søndervig, a beach town on the west coast of Jutland (mainland Denmark). It is a stone’s throw from the North Sea, right behind the first row of coastal dunes.

The small house was built in 1937 with brick walls and a thatched roof. It might look like the sand dune has been slowly overtaking the cottage, but the dune was actually notched to provide a flat and stable building site.

The cottage has a compact floor plan of 70 m2 (753 ft2). The interior was renovated in 1986, turning the ground floor into an open plan living/dining/kitchen space except for the back corner behind the stairs, where the bathroom is located. The washing machine is also in the bathroom.

The bedrooms are all upstairs, tucked into the roof space. Although the cottage is being marketed as having three bedrooms, you can only reach the smallest one by passing through another. Given their small sizes, most people would combine those two into a decent-sized master bedroom or just use the smallest room as a study, nursery, or walk-in closet.
