Just six feet wide, ‘London’s skinniest house’ is for sale for $1.3 million

A house billed as “possibly the skinniest house in London” is up for sale for 1.3 million dollars.

Just six feet wide and covering 1,034 square feet, the five-story property was once a hat shop, according to real estate agent Winkworth.

The two-bedroom house is located in Shepherd’s Bush, west London. The basement level has a kitchen, a dining room and double-height glass doors leading to a patio garden, while the first floor features a reception room.

Head up the spiral staircase to the second floor, where you will find a study, a bedroom and a roof terrace. The third floor is home to a bathroom, a dressing room and a shower room. At the very top of the house is the main bedroom.

The skinny house may be something of an oddity in London, but extraordinarily narrow houses have long been a fixture in countries where land is taxed by width, such as Vietnam and the Netherlands, and Japan has established itself as a pioneer in the field.
