Squeezy Living! – England’s thinnest house, yours for £950K

Quirky features sprinkled with fairy dust

ENGLAND’S “thinnest house” that measures just 1.6 metre wide at its narrowest point is on sale for £950,000.

The five-floor property, that has a kitchen and dining area, reception area, bathroom and two bedrooms has almost doubled in value over the last decade.

Estate agent David Myers said the former Victorian hat shop in Shepherd’s Bush would appeal to “bohemian” buyers.

At just 24ft long, the property is shorter than half a tennis court.

And it will also be a tight squeeze on your budget after it almost DOUBLED in value in a decade.

It was last sold in 2009 for £595,000 to a lawyer who is now moving abroad.

Simon Woods, the Pride and Prejudice actor married to Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s former chief executive, previously bought the house for £488,500 in 2006.

The property was also the home of fashion photographer Juergen Teller in the 1990s.

Simon Waller, who is handling the sale of the property at Winkworth, said it is the smallest house in London.

Being 5ft 5ins wide, some parts of the house are not even long enough for a person to lie down – as the average height of a man in the UK is 5ft 9in, according to the Office of National Statistics.

On the lower ground floor, which is 9ft 11in and has the widest spaces in the building, there is a long dining area with double height glazed doors leading out to a patio and garden.

The reception room on the ground floor measures 11ft by 7ft and is slightly wider than other parts of the property.

The first floor, which features a terrace with views of west London, is connected to the ground floor by a spiral staircase.

On the second floor, which is similar in size to the first and third floors, there are a shower room, a bathroom and a dressing room.

One more bedroom can be found on the third floor and has a built-in bed.

The agent said he once attended a New Year’s Eve party hosted by a casting director at the house in 1994 that went on for four days.

He said: “It was terribly bohemian – you could get lost in the different worlds over the five floors.”

Mr Walker added: “Each owner has sprinkled their own fairy dust on it.
