BOSTON (AP) – Boston’s famous Skinny House sold for a good price.
The home in the city’s North End went on the market in August for $ 1.2 million, and the deal closed Thursday for $ 1.25 million, according to Zillow.
the home “I received multiple offers and they agreed to a higher list price in less than a week,” real estate agency CL Properties posted on Facebook.
The four-story house built in 1862, according to a plaque on the facade, measures approximately 108 square meters (1,165 square feet), although it is about 3 meters wide at its widest point and tapers at the back to approximately 9.25 feet (2.8 meters).
It has two bedrooms and one bathroom and includes a private deck with views of Boston Harbor. The house has no front door. Instead, residents enter through a side door.
It was last sold in 2017 for $ 900,000.
It is also known as the Grudge House, according to the plaque. According to local tradition, two brothers inherited some lands. When one of them joined the Army, the other built a large house that took up most of the land. When the soldier brother returned, he built the Flaca House to block his brother’s view and sunlight.
