One Of London's Thinnest Houses Is Up For Sale For £800k

·2-min read

A London flat which is so narrow it looks like you could barely live inside it, is up for sale. The West London property - which is just 13 feet wide - is on the market in Kensington and Chelsea.

But, despite its slim exterior, the Thurloe Square home will set you back £795,000. From the side, the home looks so narrow it appears almost like a prop on a film set. But inside the Tardis-style flat, the space is far bigger than visitors might believe.

The lucky new owner will spot plenty of tricks to make the rooms look more generous. The walls are a clean white, with pale wood floors and bay windows. There are two double bedrooms, a big living room, a shower room and a toilet. The property even has its own terraced garden - a rarity in the city.

A description of the property on Purple Bricks reads: "Located on one of the best Garden Squares in Kensington and Chelsea with direct access to a south-facing patio/terrace as well as access to the beautiful and dog-friendly Thurloe Square Gardens. "Thurloe Square is situated in the heart of the Thurloe/Smith Charity Conservation area and is ideally positioned in the heart of South Kensington to take advantage of the wide variety of shops, restaurants and cafes of the immediate area in Chelsea and Knightsbridge as well as excellent transport links that include Circle, District and Piccadilly lines."

The former art studio was built on land that was left over after houses were demolished to make way for the London Underground at the end of the nineteenth century. The government of the time stopped the Metropolitan Railway Company from building an entrance to South Kensington tube station in Thurloe Square, leaving space for the so-called "Thin House".
