The tiny house trend is still going strong and showing no signs of stopping. People continue to wow us by creating stunning homes in everything from renovated campers to converted school buses. But this house takes the trend to the next level. Not only is it a tiny house, but it’s also a skinny house.

The Skinny House—a name it actually goes by—is located at 175 Grand Street in Mamaroneck, NY, about a 45-minute drive north of New York City. The 533-square-foot house is only 10 feet wide, but it makes the most of its limited space. It’s on the market for $275,000.

There’s already a ton of built-in storage space, and with a few extra storage hacks, you’d be all set. Mamaroneck is ideally situated on Long Island Sound, so if you start feeling claustrophobic, it’s just a short walk to get some fresh air on the water.

This is not your average tiny house; it’s somewhat of a local celebrity. According to its listing on Realtor.com, the Skinny House was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 2015. It was built in 1932 by a man named Nathan Seely who was given the 12.5-foot by 100-foot lot by his neighbor, Panfino Santangelo, during the Great Depression after he lost his home and his business. The home has only ever been owned by the Seely and Santangelo families, so the new buyer will be part of a rich local history for decades to come.

The house needs a bit of work, but it’s the perfect little idyllic space for tiny home lovers. We can’t wait to see how someone makes it their own.
