You Can Purchase The Narrowest Home In London, Measuring At Just 5 ft 5 in Across For $1.3M

The crazy real estate listings in London are not a surprise anymore. Someone recently tried to sell a 79 sq ft (7.3 sq m) apartment for $255 K. An incredibly narrow home in the Shepherd’s Bush district recently went up for sale in the city. It’s the narrowest house in London, maybe in the whole of England, it’s just 5 ft 5 in across. Even though the house is small its price certainly isn’t, it’s currently up for sale for £950,000 ($1.3M).

The building is like a hat shop as there was a hat-shaped lamp still present in the window.

The house’s price was doubled since the last time it was sold

Even though the house might be narrow, every inch of the house is used to maximize the space you wouldn’t even hardly notice it. All rooms in the home are arranged over five floors and there are two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen, and a terrace.

The building was purchased by a lawyer for $700,000 in 2009.

There’s a dining area with a glass ceiling and an exit to the garden on the lower ground floor.

There’s an exit to the beautiful roof terrace where you can sip tea on sunny days on the first floor (the second floor if you’re using American standards.)

There’s a bathroom, complete with a beautiful bathtub on the second floor.

The house comes with an “original deco bathtub” according to the listing. But it’s pretty surprising for such a narrow home.

There’s even a little indoor balcony above it.

You’ll find a cozy bedroom with a built-in bed on the top floor.

The home’s listing says, “Some worry that they would feel compressed in a six-foot-wide house but counter-intuitively this is a space that works – in much the way a luxury yacht does. There are almost too many features to mention but here are a few as a taster – Aga powered, Nest controlled central heating system, beautiful period parquets flooring, original deco bathtub, roof terrace, and double full height glass doors leading from the glazed dining area out onto the recently and brilliantly planted private patio garden.”

“If you like traditional properties that ‘tick all the boxes’ then the chances are this is not for you. If, however, you don’t like boxes and you like to entertain, enjoy the quirky and charming and feel there is more to life than two up, two down then come and see a truly special home.”

The home’s real estate listing says “Viewings have never been so highly recommended.”

The owner of the house was fashion photographer Juergen Teller back in the 90s. It was purchased by Pride and Prejudice star Simon Woods in 2006 before being sold again in 2009.

Here’s a floor plan to give you a better idea of how the house is arranged.
