The owner put up for sale the house standing on the border of USA and Canada
In the building you can enter USA and exit through the back door in Canada.
WASHINGTON, June 14. /Offset. TASS Boris Makarov/. Residential building located right on the us-canadian border, on sale for $109 thousand
One part of it is in the village of Derby line (Vermont), and the other in Stansted (Quebec).
As reported by the newspaper USA Today, the estate is considered to be historical: the building was built in 1787.
The feature of the house is that theoretically it is possible to enter the US and exit through the back door in Canada. In reality, however, such movement is prohibited because the building is under constant observation by the border services of both countries.
“If you come through the us door, and out have through the American. Same thing with canadian,” says the current owner of the house is 71-year-old Brian Dumolin.
Originally, the house was a grocery store that could see the Americans and the Canadians. Subsequently, it was repeatedly repaired and redevelopment, now the building has five rooms on two floors, three of which are on American territory, and two canadian.
In the bedroom on the second floor even drawn a line marking where the official is a state border.
The owner has to pay property tax and the canadian authorities and U.S. authorities.
A few years ago to Domalina the staff came to the border and customs control and demanded to securely close the back gate, to minimize the risk of cross-border violators. “It seems that it is the most vulnerable section of the border, says the owner of the house. They can not control the real estate that is right on their mind”.
Dumolin jokes, unusual house can be a great place of residence for a married couple, “whose love knows no bounds”.
