Boston’s Skinny House is Sold for $1.2 Million

Boston’s Skinny House is sold for more than $1.2 million. The skinny house is one of the narrowest buildings and an iconic structure and must-see tourist attraction. The skinny house was constructed in 1862.Travis Sachs, executive vice president at CL Properties, who worked with the real estate agency’s president Carmela Laurella to sell the home said that people are amazed it was built to be skinny. Sachs also added that the Skinny house might be six feet. So if you stand with your hands spread you can touch both ends.

Boston’s Skinny House is roughly 1,165 sq. ft. over four levels. Sacha also added that some records show that the home was built in 1890. Skinny House dwells with the views of both the water and the city. It stands in Boston’s North End, a largely Italian area home to some of Boston’s most historic buildings and dozens of restaurants.

Tourists pass by the home daily as part of Boston’s Freedom Trail. It is a 2.5-mile path that stops at more than a dozen historic sites, including Copp’s Hill Burying Ground, right across from Boston’s Skinny House. The site, dating back to 1659, was the final resting place for people including activists, artisans, tradesmen as well as two Puritan ministers associated with the Salem witch trials.

Sachs said that when he visited to capture photographs of the house with my photographer,  he noticed nearly 75 tourists come through and just photograph the house as part of their walking tour. The home was last sold in 2017 for $900,000.
