Have you heard of a Spite House? I can’t say that I had until yesterday. These are houses that are built for one purpose, aside from having a place to live. They are built to make the neighbors mad…and it works most of the time. According to Wikipedia:
“A spite house is a building constructed or substantially modified to irritate neighbors or any party with land stakes. Spite houses may create obstructions, such as blocking out light or blocking access to neighboring buildings, or can be flagrant symbols of defiance. Because long-term occupation is at best a secondary consideration, spite houses frequently sport strange and impractical structures.”
Amazingly there are at least 10 Spite Houses that have come into fame over the years. Here is small list of them with where they can be found.
