If I am hearing you right, it sounds like you are concerned that the narrow space on the side with the retaining wall might turn off a potential buyer? Since the retaining wall is probably there for a good reason, and I'm thinking that removing or modifying that is not a good option, you might want to consider how to make this stretch of your lot more useable. Is there a portion of fence that could be removed (to widen that portion? You could make this stretch into an attractive walkway. Maybe install gravel with inset stepping stones up that side of your property. I have seen people make this type of long narrow space quite pretty and useful. Picture a pathway with little surprises like wall mount outdoor art or even fountains, small outdoor sculptures, plantings etc. It could be a peaceful transition into your back yard. Hope this was helpful.
Thank you Double Domes,
Thanks for your reply..
yes My question is 'the narrow space on the side with the retaining wall might turn off a potential buyer?'
and from your explanation what I understad is 'its not an big issue having narrow side one side'.
Actually, I'm surprised they got a building permit with such little clearance.
On the other hand, there are parts of Pasadena that are required to be built lot-line to lot-line. But still there must be an approprate path to get to a public right of way from the rear exits.
