Most importantly, the tiny homes for sale at The Hamlet are available in a variety of different floor plans designed to meet the individual needs of each homebuyer. These beautiful cottages feature modern finishes and functional, comfortable layouts.  The Seabreeze – a one bed, one bath cottage – is a popular option for tiny home living at The Hamlet for this reason.

Tiny Home Living at Its Finest – the Seabreeze Model

Built by Clayton Homes, the Seabreeze is a Lakeside Park Model home with a farmhouse-inspired design. As you enter, you’ll pass through a spacious 11’4” x 9’10” front porch into the main living area. The front porch is like the prologue to your tiny home and can be decorated in various ways to create a charming, inviting space. The porch can also been screened-in if desired.

If you opt for a Seabreeze with a loft, you will immediately notice a full staircase leading up to the private 160 square-foot floor above. Tiny home living emphasizes making efficient use of space, so a loft can serve as an excellent storage option. With thoughtful furniture composition and creative use of space, you could even transform your loft into a charming retreat that is both practical and inviting, such as a compact library/reading nook or guest bedroom.

The living area of the Seabreeze features a built-in entertainment center with a faux fireplace and beautiful oversized windows. It’s always a good idea to consider the use of color and light when living in a tiny home, since both elements can be used to make a space appear bigger. The vaulted ceilings also extend the vertical space, lending to a spacious, open feel of the home. The Seabreeze features beautiful clerestory windows for the same reason.

The Seabreeze is the Perfect Blend of Practicality and Style

You’ll also notice this model sports a modern, U-shaped kitchen. This gives plenty of counter space while doubling as a bar for guests. There are a multitude of other sleek contemporary finishes in this tiny kitchen, such as the gooseneck faucet and oil-rubbed bronze pulls. As is the case with most homes at The Hamlet, stainless steel appliances are included: a refrigerator, microwave, and oven.

Since your square footage is limited, tiny home living often requires clever storage solutions. Thus, the Seabreeze bedroom comes with a built-in recessed wood dresser designed to fit seamlessly into the space. By eliminating the need for a free-standing dresser, it also allows for a more streamlined and organized bedroom layout. Additional storage includes a set of his/hers closets accented with rustic sliding barn doors.

The bathroom is equally lovely and practical, featuring a walk-in shower and plenty of cabinet space. Take a look at the Seabreeze floorplan.

Why You Should Choose A Simple Life Community For Tiny Home Living

The unique circumstance of offering the Seabreeze model in our community allows us to provide add-ons to the floor plan that aren’t usually available. For instance, this home is manufactured as a 1-bed, 1-bath home. This is excellent for individuals or couples. If you need a bit more space for a guest room, office space, or art studio, then a 2-bedroom Seabreeze might suit you best. This 2-bedroom Seabreeze is exclusively available at The Hamlet. You can take a virtual tour of the 2-bedroom Seabreeze here:

Overall, the Seabreeze is a gorgeous combination of farmhouse and modern aesthetics while still being comfortable and space efficient. Clayton Homes is the manufacturer of this beautiful cottage, and we offer several other models of theirs at The Hamlet. This includes the Alexander, Sedona, and the Sunset Retreat.
