6-foot wide 'skinniest house' hits the market for $1.3 million


“Living large” just took on a whole new meaning!

A house that hit the market in London is getting a lot of attention for its unique dimensions.

At just six feet wide and five stories high, the house has been dubbed the “skinniest” in London.

The property in Shepherd’s Bush neighborhood is listed for 950,000 pounds, or more than $1.3 million.

So, what do you get for the steep price (aside from five levels)?

David Myers of Winkworth Estate Agents in London said that the home has “superb interior design” that makes the most from the least amount of space.

At 1,034-square feet, the home features two bedrooms and one bathroom and requires “flexible accommodations.”

The kitchen, at over 24 feet long and 5 1/2 feet wide, is located on the lower ground floor and leads to a dining room and garden.

There’s also some great amenities including a Nest central heating system, original deco bathtub, and “double full height glass doors leading from the glazed dining area.”

But you’ll never feel cramped as there’s ample outdoor space with a landscaped patio garden and a roof terrace.

He called the slender property the “ultimate designer house.”

Per the listing, the thin building was previously a hat shop before being turned into a residential property in the 1990s by fashion photographer, Jurgen Teller.

Due to its “unique charm, character and originality,” Myers says he believes the home will appeal to creative types working in the media, designers, or photographers.

“After all, how many of us can say we live in something so eccentric?” he said in a press release.

He emphasized that the home is best suited for a single person or a couple.

And it’s definitely not the right fit for someone who likes “traditional properties.”
