- An apartment in London’s “thinnest” house, which is only 6 feet wide at the narrowest point, is for sale.
- It has a price tag of £ 795,000 ($ 1.1 million) and has been listed for two months.
- The eccentric property is located in South Kensington – one of the city’s most prestigious districts.
A two-bedroom apartment in what is described as London’s “thinnest” house is for sale, and MyLondon reported that there are no buyers.
The property, which is on the market for £ 795,000 ($ 1.1 million), is located in the aptly named Thin House. The thin building on Thurloe Square is only 6 feet wide at the narrowest point. That makes it narrower than a standard London double-decker bus, which is usually about 8 feet wide.
It is smaller than other properties that have also claimed the title of London’s narrowest home.
The building is triangular, according to Secret London, meaning it expands to 34 feet at its largest point.
And it’s in one of London’s most coveted areas, South Kensington – just a stone ‘s throw from historical museums, luxury department stores and some of the city’s most prestigious addresses.
There is a small terrace and access to communal gardens.
The building was built in the late 19th century by a local builder who had the vision to fill a small, vacant lot between the London Undergrounds District Line and other houses on the road, according to Secret London.
He filled the thin triangle with seven artist studios and created the thin house, which was eventually converted into apartments.
The 2-bedroom apartment, located in a building, has been listed since early September.
But MyLondon speculates that its proximity to a noisy pipeline, the powerful price tag and the “bizarre” shape can make it difficult to sell.
