A super-skinny townhouse in Battersea, southwest London—known as The Slim House, for very apparent reasons—has been listed with a £1 million (US$1.41 million) price tag.
At just over seven-and-a-half-feet wide, the three-story home is thought to be one of the narrowest properties in the capital, according to a news release from Savills, the brokerage that has the listing, which was posted last week.
“Its unique proportions make The Slim House a really rare find and one of just a handful in London,” said Jasper Colliver, head of Savills Wandsworth in the news release. “Having been extended by its former owners, the property has been cleverly designed with well-placed storage and bespoke fittings to maximise the 1,058-square-feet of living accommodation.”
In 2013, London-based architects Alma-nac were drafted by the property’s then owners to draw up plans for an extension to the rear of each floor which increased the home’s size by almost a third, the news release said.
It now has two reception rooms on the ground floor along with a kitchen, a second floor master bedroom with a dressing room and shower room, while three further bedrooms and a bathroom are found across the second and third floors.
The slender property has been featured on British property shows “Grand Designs” and “George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces.”
The current owner, advertising executive Aimee Luther, purchased The Slim House in 2014, according to the release.
“This house has a slice of everything but on a slightly slimmer scale and no downsides of having neighbours above or below,” Ms. Luther said in the news release. “I’ve no doubt that the next owner will have equal pride in owning this piece of architectural brilliance.” Ms. Luther could not be reached for further comment.
