The house featured in the video, built in an unusual place, soon became a welcoming home with a refined and elegant ambience that would meet all the desires of a family.
The Spite House, as this two-story dwelling is called, is located in Alexandria, Virginia, among other, more imposing buildings. It has a width of only 2.13 meters and an area of only 29 square meters. Jack Sammis, the owner of the house, decided to build it on the site of an alley used quite intensely by neighbors, as he wanted to stop “pedestrian traffic.”
Structurally, the dwelling is more like a closed aisle than a house, and the brick walls of the two neighboring houses serve as its walls. The current owner of the house, Jack Sammis, told Oprah Winfrey that furnishing the house was somewhat a challenge, as he wanted to install a kitchen with a freezer, a fridge, a stove and a microwave. He also created enough storage space under the kitchen sofa and in the suspended or corner cabinets.
In the video, you can see that the microwave was hidden on a shelf under the stairs. There is also a bathroom in the house, a beautiful terrace with lots of greenery, and one upstairs bedroom, the perfect space for a few moments of relaxation.
