There is a 9.5 foot wide townhouse in Manhattan at 75 1/2 Bedford Street, that is supposedly the narrowest.

The townhouse with the smallest width I have inspected was 12 feet wide and that seemed pretty tight. Figuring about 1 foot for wall thickness on either side in the house I inspected, the occupant is left with 10 feet to move around in.

Here’s the kicker. A 1 meter wide house in Brazil (2 meters wide in the rear). Claustraphobia comes to mind and a firetrap.

….and a narrow house in Seattle, WA San Francisco, CA.

    What about the ‘triangular’ house on the northeast corner of Greenwich and Reade Streets that also boasts a great deal of it’s square footage is in the underground vaults?

    The house in Seattle WA is actually in San Francisco, in the Glen Park neighborhood.
