You can now own what might just be the narrowest house in London. The slender residence is snuggly sandwiched between two storefronts in the city’s vibrant Shepherd’s Bush neighborhood, and is just six feet wide. Embracing its lean configuration, the home arranges itself across five floors, offering a surprising 1,034 square feet of living space.
"Unique is an oft over-used word, especially by real estate agents," notes the listing firm representing the dwelling. "Perhaps this overuse is why it feels so completely inadequate when it comes to describing this genuinely individual property which, despite its surface oddness, is actually very easy to live with."
A flexible layout makes the home more accommodating than one might think. Split into five levels, the residence divides its main living areas by floors. The primary living room is sited on the ground level and is located in the rear of the home. A wide window on the back wall, overlooking the private outdoor garden area, ushers in ample natural light to create a bright and airy aesthetic in the small space.
The kitchen and dining area are located one floor down on the lower ground level. While the kitchen sits toward the front of the home, the dining area is situated in the rear and offers access to the backyard garden.
Two levels up, on the first floor, sits one of the home’s two bedrooms, along with a small study area. It is also on this level where a private roof terrace can be accessed. The bathroom comprises the entire second floor, while the additional bedroom is housed on the third (top) level.
"If you like traditional properties that tick all the boxes, then chances are this space is not for you," notes the firm. "If, however, you don't like boxes and you like to entertain, enjoy the quirky and charming, and feel there is more to life than two-up-two-down, then come and see a truly special home." In addition to an eclectic experience, the residence also offers close proximity to several of London’s highlights, including the Shepherd’s Bush Market. The iconic Bush Theatre and Westfield Shopping Centre are also just a short walk away, along with lively pubs, cafes, and restaurants. Keep scrolling to see inside more of the home.
