I came across this from an email my mom forwarded me. I thought it was pretty interesting. Here it is...Toronto's Smallest House on Sale.
It occupies what used to be a driveway. One bedroom, one bathroom house that sits in between two houses and is just under 300 square feet. Original asking price was a whopping $179,000 (canadian dollars) !! Which at this point is about 1:1 with the US Dollar.
The house was built in 1912. The owner had some offers but they fell through and it was relisted for $173,000 CAD.
Dwarfed between two larger homes, the detached bungalow was bought in the spring of 2006 for $139,000 CAD and totally renovated inside and out, including a new decorative window for its gabled roof, hardwood floors, new cabinetry, appliances, a stone walkway and gardens. This was the owner's "flip" project." Although I personally don't see how he could have made money on this making all of these changes when he bought it for $139,000 to begin with...
The house was originally built by a contractor where he lived in it for 20 years.
Dwarfed by the two homes by it. It's so cute!
Living room - looking towards the back of the house.
Renovated kitchen and new appliances.
Bedroom in the back.
Bedroom with the Murphy bed down. In this space, you
pretty much have to have a Murphy bed. There isn't
even any space to walk around it.
What do you think? Would you live in a house like this?
