The "thinnest" house in London has gone on the market in Shepherd's Bush for £950,000 — and it sure does cram a lot in.

This tall and skinny house for sale, which is just six feet wide in some parts, is situated between two shops on Goldhawk Road and has 1,034 sq ft of internal modern space. Originally a hat shop, the property was converted into a five-storey property by fashion photographer Jurgen Teller.

It first went on the market in September 2020 for the same asking price, but is now for sale again after struggling to find a buyer. "It's not designed to be a family home," David Myers from estate agent Winkworth told The Metro. "Potential buyers viewing the house are single people and couples — creative types such as media people, designers and photographers."

On the lower ground floor there is a dining room with double height glazed doors which lead to a leafy patio, plus a small kitchen with a dark green AGA and shaker-style cabinets. It has been inspired by a luxury yacht to make the most of its small space, so expect functional and practical nooks throughout.

You'll discover a reception room on the ground floor (the main entrance to the house), plus one bedroom, a study, and a roof terrace on the first floor. On the second floor is a dressing room and shower room, while a second bedroom sits on the third floor. While the home is narrow, it certainly doesn't lack any style; from the Art Deco bath to the parquet flooring, the interiors feel contemporary and on the whole, pared-back.

Simon Waller, manager of Winkworth in Shepherds Bush, adds: "It's quirky and charming and great for entertaining and will appeal to someone who feels there is more to life than two up, two down. It started life as a hat shop, was converted by a fashion photographer and it seems fitting that it is launching as London Fashion Week gets under way – the ultimate designer house."

The garden might not be very large, but it offers a peaceful respite from a busy day in the city. It could do with a little TLC, but has the potential to be a beautiful space.

Tempted? This property is currently on the market for £950,000 via Winkworth.
