This is the most adorable little house in the world. The front of it looks so grand, but as the realtor put it best, it looks like “a wedge of cheese”:
There are two different stories behind the “Seattle Spite House.” One story is that a neighbor lowballed the property owner, saying he couldn’t build on the land — and so the owner built the home out of spite.
But the most popular story is about a couple who got divorced decades ago. According to OregonLive, the husband got the house and gave the small slice of front yard to his ex-wife. However, he told her the yard was too small for her to use, anyway.
Out of spite, she squeezed the pie-shaped home into the lot… and it’s been there ever since.
