Landowner builds tiny 10ft wide house on his land ‘out of spite’ after millionaire neighbors complain they are using abandoned land as extra garden – as it hits market at exorbitant price .

Despite a neighborhood neighbor, a Florida builder built a tiny, 10-foot-wide, two-story home — now for sale for $619,000.

A 1,547 square foot house was built on empty residual land formerly used as a garden by a neighbor of Jacksonville Beach.

The 140-foot-deep “skinny” property has two bedrooms, three bathrooms and space for a one-car garage.

It also has a built-in dining table made from reclaimed wood from a local pier destroyed by Hurricane Matthew in 2016.

Aside from that, the house also features nine-foot-high ceilings on the main floor and vaulted ceilings of up to 10 feet.

This unique home went viral after listing agent Ryan Wetherhold of Oceanside Real Estate revealed how it came to be.

He explained that he and builder John Atkins first wanted to make the house 15 feet wide, but building codes required the house to have 7.5 feet of space on each side.

When the duo tried to get the rule changed, residents of the upscale neighborhood pushed back and said they wanted the land to remain open.

One resident even planted a garden on the land and persuaded others to attend a public meeting.

“You have that mob mentality where it goes. The members of the board of directors cannot then make their own decision.

“If there are 100 people out there saying no, and there’s no one saying, ‘Yeah, let’s do it,’ those people are carrying it. Those voices are carrying it,” Wetherhold told ClickOrlando.

As a result, he and Atkins were left with only a 10-foot-wide option.

“He got creative within the code and was able to create bay windows and removable seating that really helped and that was the difference.”

“Being able to use your knowledge within the building code to make it, honestly, a very user-friendly, pleasant, practical home for a buyer,” he explained.

Despite the size of the building, the property is attracting a lot of interest from people and even has a potential buyer.

“Normally you get 50 views in the first few days, and this one already had 1,000 to 2,000 views in the first few days.

“So we knew as soon as we released it that it was something special, something unique and something that was definitely eye-opening.

“I put a lot of effort into marketing and you hope to reach people through normal channels just through your marketing.

“But (the buyer) actually saw it through all the publicity he received,” Wetherhold exclaimed.

Wetherhold says the house is perfect for

Wetherhold says the house is perfect for “someone who wants to be in a neighborhood of million dollar homes but doesn’t want the maintenance factor and still wants to be in a nice neighborhood and pay about half price”.

But while the property may seem like an introvert’s dream, the agent warned it could be difficult to store larger vehicles in the garage.

“You can fit a truck in there, but to open the doors and such, it’s a pretty tight fit.

“In our community, though, we sell a lot of one or two garages, and we don’t find anyone in our community who even parks in the garage. What they put in their garage is golf carts, bikes, beach stuff and lawn equipment,” he said.
