Opis   EN   

Automatic translation thanks to:

You build a skinny house, of course!

At only 12 feet wide, the house is 2,880 square feet with four floors, four bedrooms, and three-and-a-half bathrooms.

In 2003, a builder  purchased the lot on Barton Street and knocked down the small home there. He expected to build two bungalows in its place, but he needed a zoning variance. He wanted to stretch one of the homes five feet wider, from 12 feet to 17 feet.

Two houses down the street were built with the variance, so he didn’t anticipate a problem.

Then he met the neighbors, who were tired of seeing two houses packed in where one used to be.  So they had the Zoning Board block his request.

Instead of being stuck with an open piece of property, he decided to build the skinny house.

As of September 2009, the rent was $4600 / month.


There are plenty of places to park along the street, and even a small lot beside the house.

Of course, the house is private property, so don't mosey onto their property. You can stand on the sidewalk across the street and see everything.


To confirm your visit...

1) Please post a photo of yourself and/or GPS with the house in the background.

2) The Log Password is the ten digit phone number on the blue-white-red sign immediately to the right of the house. No spaces or dashes. As a checksum, if you add all the numbers together, you will get '27'.

I stopped by and did a few caches on my way to a class this evening. I never thought I'd see a house like this. Thanks for showing it to me.

Third OC cache today. A very interesting house. I wonder what it is like on the inside? Thanks for showing it to us. TFTC

Interesting history here, thanks for sharing and bringing me to this unusual structure.  I pass near by here almost weekly, but it's one of those things that you never know about.  Even if you do the history is often lost.

About the picture:  There was someone sititng on the porch across the street, so I didn't want to be too conspicuous.  Plus this gave me a chance to take a picture of the GPS that does a lot of work, but doesn't often get credit in many of my logs.  :-)

I had some cache maintenance to do on one of my hides in Arlington so I made the detour to pick up my third OC of the day.  I was worried about being discrete while I snapped my photo but it turned out to be no problem at all on a quiet Sunday evening.  Nice house, out of my price range but interesting architecture nonetheless.  TFTC

#1 - After donbadabon logged the first find on OpenCaching.us with my Archangel in Brookville cache, I thought I'd return the favor and made the trip down to his cache.

Interesting story around this house.  I've never been in this neighborhood, so wasn't familiar with it, but it sort of stand out.

When I arrived on site, there were some people unloading a car.  Looked like they were moving in.  I didn't want to be obvious about taking my picture, so I sat on the steps of the church across the street and tried to be non-challant about it.

Thanks and glad to be able to record my first OpenCaching find.
