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.

Living large: The living area and TV room of the Little House - just seven feet wide

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'.

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.

Ok, I've been looking at that street on google maps trying to find that house... (which is now in 3D :wtf:) anyway, whoever zoned that place was on crack. There are so many weird little houses. It's like they built normal duplexes but then kept building other houses into the ever narrower alleys between them. :huh: It's kinda cool, but really weird.


Yeah, there's just one major problem with that house. It's in Toronto. :tongue: :sneaky:
