W. 30th Avenue, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Laneway houses are extremely popular in Vancouver right now, but how much would you be willing to pay to live in somebody’s backyard? Expect to pay $3,195/month for this one. Roughly 900 permits have been issued & more than 500 lane houses built since the bylaw was passed in 2009.
This 1,000 square foot example in the Dunbar area of Vancouver offers 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and an open room containing the kitchen & living area. As a bonus there is also a small deck. The house comes fully furnished with everything you’d need from cooking utensils, dishes & cutlery, to linens, basic bath essentials and a plasma tv.
It’s new, visually appealing, and perfect for one person or a couple at the very most. The owners will even allow the new tenants to bring in a small dog. You’ll need to sign a lease of at least two months at $3,195/month not including gas or electric bringing your minimum rent to $6,390. Seems a bit excessive for a 1,000 square foot house in somebody’s backyard.
