Revisiting The Doory Awards 2012: Best Tiny Home

Image Source: Signature Sotheby's International Realty Located within walking distance to the beach and downtown, this Venice home is all about location. The Cape Cod's rooms feature large windows and a gracious corner lot with a picture-perfect white picket fence.

Just three short weeks until voting begins for The Doory Awards 2013, FrontDoor's celebration of America's most outstanding homes for sale. One of our most popular categories from last year – Tiny Homes – will be in the mix again this year. Since we're not quite ready to reveal this year's set of pint-sized pads just yet, we're taking another look at last year's winner in the meantime.

Found in the gulf-front city of Venice, Fla., this 900-square-foot Cape Cod cottage charmed voters with its quaint style and convenient location. Set within walking distance of the beach and historic downtown Venice, the cheerful yellow home comes with hardwood oak floors, a cozy fireplace in the living room and large windows overlooking a lush corner lot bordered by a picture-perfect white picket fence. Despite its old-fashioned appeal, the home's updated kitchen features new appliances and Corian countertops.

If you like this petite property, be sure to visit us on May 1 when voting opens for this year's Doory Awards. You can come back every day until June 5 to cast your vote for your favorite homes in 20 diverse categories – plus enter to win one of five $2,000 cash prizes.
