Is this the narrowest house in the UK?

If you enjoy a morning stretch when you get out of bed you’ll have to do it very precisely at this London townhouse – because it’s only 6ft wide!

The two-bedroom terraced house in Shepherds Bush is said to be the narrowest house in the capital, with the living spaces stacked on top of each other inside the property’s five floors.

We don’t know for sure if this place is the narrowest home in the country, but it’s certainly a contender!

The former hat shop is up for sale for almost £1million, but despite its size, this gem of a property boasts a wonderful roof terrace that offers incredible views over West London.

The house offers deceptively flexible living accommodation and manages to squeeze plenty of character into all its intriguing nooks and crannies.

However, the main bedroom is accessed via a loft hatch of sorts, so you’ll need to be extra careful when climbing into bed after a few weekend cocktails.

And what’s so interesting about this property is that it doesn’t feel at all claustrophobic.

The double height glass doors leading from the glazed dining area out onto the peaceful, private patio garden are a wonderful feature that make this house feel more spacious than it really is.

Elsewhere in the house you’ll find beautiful period parquet flooring, an original deco bathtub, and a 24ft long kitchen on the lower ground floor with a charming Aga to boot.

This property is listed for sale with Winkworth.
