The famous “Skinny House” in Boston has sold for $1.73 NZ million.
The house is located at at 44 Hull St and has become a tourist attraction in Boston.
The house is 108 square meters big and has two bedrooms, one bathroom, a private garden and roof deck. The widest part of the house is 3m and its narrowest point is 1.8m.
Legend has it that the house was built after a family argument.
A soldier after returning home from the Civil War found that his brother had built a property on their inherited land from their deceased father. He was left with only a small section of land.
So the soldier built the “Skinny House,” also nicknamed a “Spite House,” to block sunlight from his brother’s home.
