Skinny House With a Fat Sale Price

Asking price is $2.7 million

How much is too much to pay for a house that's barely wider than your living room sofa -- even if that house is on one of the quaintest blocks in the West Village?

At only nine feet wide and 42 feet long, 75 1/2 Bedford Street is billed as the city's narrowest house.  It's now on the market for a cool asking price of $2.7 million.

The building was built in 1873 and has a storied history -- literally. Poet Edna St. Vincent Millay and anthropologist Margaret Mead once called it home.
The three-story structure boasts plenty of light with large windows in the front and back, and a skylight.
The current owner bought it in 2000 for $1.6 million.
