Inside the London townhouse that's skinnier than a Tube carriage
A LONDON townhouse which is skinnier than a Tube carriage has gone on sale for £275,000.
The ultra-compact one-bedroom house in Wanstead, East London, is just 8ft 5in wide.
It has 333sq ft of living space spread over two floors and manages to squeeze in a living room, kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor.
Upstairs there is a double bedroom and outside it boasts front patio space and off-street parking.
It is a short walk from Wanstead High Street and just 0.5 miles from Wanstead Station.
But despite its slender stature, this property is not the skinniest house in the capital.
A townhouse in Shepherd’s Bush, West London, was judged to be just 5ft 5ins wide.
They say good things come in small packages and this quirky home is certainly eye-catchingly tiny."
Some parts of the five-storey property aren't wide enough to lie in – but its price tag of £995,000 is more than a CASTLE in Wales.
At just 24ft long, the former hat shop is shorter than half a tennis court.
Rightmove property expert Tim Bannister said the house in Wanstead is one of the narrowest homes they have ever listed.
He said: “They say good things come in small packages and this quirky home is certainly eye-catchingly tiny.
“At just over two and a half metres wide, this property is definitely one of the narrowest houses we’ve ever listed on Rightmove.
“But it would be a cosy starter home for a first-time buyer looking to get on the property ladder in London.”
This property is listed for sale for £275,000 with Petty Son & Prestwich Ltd.
