World’s Narrowest House

These homes make a literal joke of the phrase “living large”. The houses below make it in our list of the world’s narrowest homes, and for good reason. Peep them.

Skinny House – Boston, Massachusetts

This four-story, 964-square-foot building at 44 Hull Street is the skinniest house in Boston. The property gets narrower from front to back, with a width that varies slightly between about 9 and 10 feet and floors separating the rooms rather than doors.

A few different legends explain why the historic home was originally constructed — and why in such a weird spot. One story says it was built by a Tory (someone who remained loyal to Britain) who wanted to obstruct his patriot neighbor’s view. Another story says it was built by a Civil War soldier who came home, found out his brothers had built on the land he had inherited and wanted to block their views out of spite. .
