Seattle's 4.5-Foot-Wide 'Spite House' Up For Sale


In 1925, a spat between two neighbors over a tiny sliver of land resulted in the creation of an 830-square-foot house on the corner of 24th Avenue and Boston in Montlake. The 4.5-foot-wide home built on a pie-shaped lot was literally built out of spite and it's become a neighborhood favorite in the years since. Available for the first time since 2000, the House That Spite Built is going for $397K (sold for $240K last time). Looks like some folks less-driven by hateful vengeance have put some love into the slim abode. Perhaps that's balanced out the original emotions poured in with the concrete.
