The story goes that there were two brothers: One went to fight in the Civil War, while the other remained in Boston. During the war, their father died, and the Boston brother built an expansive home on the land the brothers inherited.

When Civil War brother came home, he found all that was left for him was a measly piece of land, which the Boston brother considered too small for a house. So, out of spite, the Civil War brother built a 10-foot-wide home that reportedly blocked the sunlight and views from the Boston brother’s mansion.

The Spite House sold last back in 2017, but it’s for sale again — for a whopping $1.2 million! The home is more a “small” home than a tiny one, at just about 1,200 square feet. It has four floors, each one long and skinny, kind of like four THOWs stacked on top of each other.
