An ultra-skinny home on Queen’s Road in London has entered the market for £775k ($1.1million), but despite its misleading exteriors, this home is surprisingly spacious and uniquely stylish.
Situated between Mortlake and Barnes stations in Richmond upon Thames, this unconventional two-bedroom modern home is a light and airy haven that has mastered the art of saving space, in the chicest way possible.
Despite some areas measuring only 2.23 meters, the property showcases eclectic home decor with unrivaled space-saving techniques throughout its exquisitely curated reception, open-plan kitchen, breakfast room, and dining room space. The dining area measures around 3 meters, so there is slightly more room to hold a unique dinner party in a home that the guests will struggle to forget.
The property also showcases a high-level aesthetic bookcase, accompanied by a quaint wheeled library ladder and a basement with an added opportunity for storage, or basement parties, naturally.
Other notable home decor features include a large statement mirror that accentuates the space and a collection of houseplants for an exotic jungle ambiance in the heart of the capital.
Meanwhile, the architectural assets include a charismatic brick wall and a split-level living space that epitomizes small space-contemporary living. This sun-drenched space embodies indoor-outdoor living throughout its large statement windows and patio door. The bi-folding doors lead to a landscaped urban sanctuary – with an unusually large amount of room for outdoor furnishings and lush plantings.
While it may be hard to part from this super-stylish haven, homeowners can indulge in wonders beyond its four walls. Its prestigious SW14 postcode is only a short hop to an exclusive selection of restaurants, bars, and boutiques and sits on the verdant Richmond Park on the fringe of the Themes.
