Woman Builds A 55-Inch Wide House To Get Revenge On Her Greedy Ex.
It is only natural for adults to have disagreements. You can’t possibly agree on everything but hopefully years of being a grown-up has given you the skills and tools to deal with a dispute. Some, however, take their contentions a little too far.
There is a particular type of individual who does not know when to back down. These persons are not looking to get back at their nemesis with one slight, they want the pain and insult to be long and everlasting. And what better way to remind an adversary to not cross you than by teaching them a lesson, every single day of their lives.
Spite houses are a mean and cruel way to get back at someone. Spending the money to erect a house to get under someone’s skin may be the ultimate act of revenge. The Montlake Spite House in Seattle is a testament of the hate two individuals had for one another.
This house sits in a quiet street in Montlake, Seattle. The exterior does not reveal much to anyone driving by.
The house was built in 1925. There are three stories surrounding the birth of this construction.
A couple going through a bitter divorce had to split the property they lived in.
The husband managed to get himself the house and give his ex the front yard.
Rather than move out, the wife decided to build her tiny home on the front yard.
The house is 4 foot wide and 850-square-foot, split over two floors.
At its narrowest point, it measures 55 inches wide while at the widest point it is 15 feet wide.
The home went on the market to sell this year for $519,000.
The realtor Kathy Rathvon, admits this may be the most unusual home she ever had to sell.
The home has become a bit of a landmark in Seattle.
