Small but perfectly formed: pint-sized London townhouse for sale is just 99 inches wide

Does size matter? Not for the owners of this tiny property, which has been dubbed 'London's skinniest house'...

We all know that when it comes to property, space comes at a price. And for buyers in the capital even the smallest patch of land commands a premium.

Enter London’s ‘skinniest house’. Yes this little home, the size zero of townhouses, has shimmied its way in to a corner of south London. Denmark Hill, to be precise.

And we’re quite impressed with what this small one-bedroom property has to offer.

The interior offers a lesson in small-space living – with streamlined
furniture such as a daybed tucked under the stairs – and plenty of
shelving to make the most of vertical storage space.

If ever there was a bijou property, this is it. At just 466 square feet, the house is situated on land that was once a side garden. The kitchen measures just 5ft 2 inches across.

While narrow, the 75ft garden still packs in a small decked area, lawn, borders and even a shed.

Despite its size the estate agents are confident that this pint-sized
property will sell quickly. The compact home is across the road from
Denmark Hill station and ‘excellent for commuters wanting a
pied-à-terre’, according to Warren McCann of Foxtons in East Dulwich.

Yours for £450,000. Well, if you live in London and dream of owning a freehold house instead of a £400k flat, this could just look like a bargain…
