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.
