London house that’s just 7ft 8in wide goes on sale for £650,000 – but there are surprises inside

If you’re up for getting creative with some uh, spatial challenges, a super-narrow house might be the way to go.

There are plenty to choose from, after all – from England’s ‘thinnest house’ that’s just 5ft 5in wide (listed for close to £1million) to a snazzy London property that measures 4metres across.

The latest skinny property to land on the market is a two-bedroom terraced home in Twickenham, London.

It may only be 7ft 8in (2.4metres) across, but inside, the house hides some surprises.

What it may lack in width, the home makes up for in length, extending 10 metres back.

It’s a bit Tardis-like, as when you enter through the front door you’ll find a large kitchen and diner extension that offers more than enough space for a couple of small family.

It’s skinny, yes, but smart styling makes the most of the space (Picture: Jam Press/Purplebricks)

The living room is skinny, yes, but there’s enough room for a row of armchairs and a sofa.

Meanwhile, the ground floor bathroom – situated between the lounge and the kitchen – comfortably fits a full size bath and shower despite its tiny 1.35metre width.

Double doors take you out to the garden, in case you feel a bit cramped.

And out here is where you’ll find a secret feature: a one-bedroom outbuilding with its own kitchen and bathroom.

Along with the main house, there’s a one-bedroom annex (Picture: Jam Press/Purplebricks)

This annex is 15ft 7in wide – massive, compared to the main house.

You could use this as a very fancy garden office, or rent it out.

Back in the house, upstairs, there’s a double bedroom and a smaller second bedroom, which is currently used as a home office.

Every room in the property has underfloor heating, as a nice bonus.

If you’re keen to put in an offer on the house, which was built in 2017, you can get in touch through the Rightmove listing.

Perhaps have a clear-out of anything particularly wide or bulky first, though.
