    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…
