Toronto house that's only 12-feet wide is listed for $1.3 million
Here are a couple of things that are 12-feet: an African Elephant, two fridges, a garage door, six Golden Retrievers and this house.
Yeah, 723 Dovercourt is just 12-feet wide, which isn't the narrowest house in Toronto but it's close.
Listed for $1,345,000, the three-storey two-unit semi-detached home has two-bedroom and two-bathrooms.
"When you get in it's not that bad," realtor Forrest Kendlbacher assured blogTO, speaking to the narrow foot print of the house.
Since the home is built to the full lot size it does use the entire potential of the space, he explained.
However, the home is likely in need of some TLC.
The bathrooms also look especially dated and the kitchen could be upgraded.
The home, while originally a single family home back in 2007, was converted in the last few years to be multiple units so it could be used as an Airbnb.
So there might also be a couple of things that have fallen into disrepair as is bound to happen with short-term rentals.
But Kendlbacher is quick to mention other appealing aspects of the home: "It's got a yard, it's got parking, and it's under $1.4 million in Toronto."
Which, to be fair, are all true and do make the 12-foot wide thing a bit easier to swallow.
Additionally, the lot is 132-feet deep, which is nothing to scoff at.
So while you only have 12-feet of width to work with, Kendlbacher writes in the listing that there could be a potential to build a two-storey 800-square-foot laneway house over the back part of the property.
Further, the home is in a great location. It's just south of Bloor Street and close to Ossington Station as well as parks, shopping and everything else Dufferin Grove has to offer.
So as long as you don't have more than six Golden Retrievers standing side by side this could be a solid investment.
