SEATTLE — A very small house in the Montlake neighborhood of Seattle is on the market — and this one comes with a pretty unique story.

The infamous Spite house is tiny — just 830 square feet — but it’s story is larger than life.

Built in 1925, it’s long been rumored by neighbors that the tiny home was built following a divorce settlement when a judge allegedly gave the husband the house and the wife the front yard. She then reportedly built the tiny home on the small slice of land that comprised the front yard.

The one-story home also has a basement, two bedrooms and 1.75 baths.

The asking price is $396,500.
