    Default For sale: The world's smallest house

    For sale: The world's smallest house (7ft wide, 47ft long, and going for a mere £110,000)

    At just over seven feet wide and 47 feet long, this tiny building is one of the smallest functioning homes in the world.
    The 312-square foot 'Little House' of Toronto, Canada, has developed a cult following and even has its own website.
    Back on the property market for £110,000, the comfortable home surprisingly comes with three rooms, including a normal sized bathtub.

    With a front drive that parks two family sized cars - even though the house itself is barely big enough to swing a cat round - it still comes with all amenities.

    Sitting on Day Ave in Toronto's Little Italy, the home has been viewed almost 40 times since it went on the market.
    It is described in the estate agents guide as a 'unique home in good condition overall and has been well maintained'.

    Good storage: The 47-foot long house has a wee back garden also



    Just enough room for two (and a bottle of wine): The garden area of the Little House


    As well as its ample 2.36m-high ceilings, the Little House also has a decent sized basement for storage space.
    'The interior of the house seems much more expansive than the small exterior,' said real estate agent Antonio Nardi.
    'It has a full bathroom, a kitchen and a decent sized bedroom with a fold up bed that gives more room when up.
    'This is a great and historic purchase.'

    Built in 1912, the Little Home has become a celebrity in its own right over the past 98 years.
    Talk show host Ellen Degeneres has even expressed an interest in one day owning the Little House.

    i don't know if i could live in this house. 5 steps from the front door to the back door and you're out of the house again. it's really tiny. i recently saw a house that has the same width as this one. but it also had three floors, which i think is a minimum to make it more or less liveable. and a very pretty classical facade.

    the smallest house around here is this one. it was turned into a café. very cozy.

    For sale again already?

    I guess it sucks to live in it just as much as I thought it would.

    And I still want to see the "full size" bathroom. I can't figure out where it is.

    The webiste has pics of the bathroom, but I don't think it's 'full size'; it even says this as a caption on one of the pics:

    "All the conveniences of a full four-piece bathroom, in a compact, but bright and inviting space."

    It would be claustrophobic in there for me. Not only is it too small,but that ghastly,cheap looking electric range really sealed the deal with me. Plus there's no dishwasher,and certainly no room for one. To hell with that.

    The nicest thing I can say about it is: At least it wouldn't take long to clean the whole house. I live in a house where the "today we're doing a whole house clean" is the most dreaded sentence ever.

    i have a tiny apt and i love it. the only reason i couldn't live in this thing is the neighbors are too close.
