Described as the 'the ultimate designer house' by David Myers, of Winkworth estate agents, this 5ft 6in wide property is the 'thinnest house in London'- and you can pick it up for £950,000.
Located in Shepherd's Bush, this former hat store was used to store goods and provide sleeping quarters in the nineteenth- century. Remnants of these elegant retail roots remain visible today, through its feature shop window, which the current owner has dressed with a hat display. The property was then renovated by fashion photographer, Jurgen Teller, who converted the house into a home.
Despite looking particularly thin from the outside, 'London's thinnest house' has a surprising number of amenities, including two bedrooms, a dressing room, landscaped patio garden, and a roof terrace, where you can stand five floors above the vibrant west London neighborhood.
This unique build also has a lower ground floor with a 24 ft 11 inch by 9 ft 11-inch dining area, where we imagine your future party guests will want a full tour of your obscure new home.
The kitchen area is slightly over 24 ft long and 5ft 5 inches wide, but, let's be honest, you'll only need to use this space if you can pull yourself away from the delectable eateries around Shepherds Bush.
Though, perhaps the most stylish features are seen in the heritage of the property, as the house is complete with a striking spiral staircase, beautiful period parquets flooring, and an original deco bathtub. Despite these distinct characteristics, however, the property is entirely equipped with contemporary necessities, such as an Aga powered, Nest controlled central heating system.
This 5-story Victorian maze is currently listed with Winkworth estate agents, who share that 'viewings have never been so highly recommended.'
Estate Agent, David Myers, further explained: 'It's quirky and charming and great for entertaining and will appeal to someone who feels there is more to life than two up, two down. It started life as a hat shop, was converted by a fashion photographer – the ultimate designer house'.
There are even more stunning small modern homes that inspire- take a tour of these tiny houses.
