This house, located near the intersection of Dufferin Street and Rogers Road is believed to be Toronto’s smallest house.

The asking price is $179,900.

Nothing wrong with 100 amp service for this size of home. It is so cute. I too would like to know where the bathroom is. Good luck with the sale.

Dear Mr. Devilla,
Would it be possible to get a photo of the bathroom up on the site. I’m not the only one that would like to see!!!
Thanks

I am curious it looks like there could be a small room upstairs judging from the pictures. Is there an attic space or a possible area to make another room in the upper level?

There is a website about the house and has the history as well as lots of pictures, including the “missing” bathroom.

cute, real cute….if i moved into a house like that with wife, we would be fighting everyday…fighting in close quarters like that is very bad.

it’s ridiculous that people have to live like mice in such a big rich country as Canada

they have two satellite dishes they only need a fourth of one. Its cute but why so big for a house so cheap my house is worth less and its a two story in California

I thought it was going to be really small, but it actually stretches pretty far. I would not mind living in it. But it would probably be ideal for a little person or people who are used to living in smaller spaces.
