Narrow home just 8ft 1in wide on sale for £700,000 after being converted from workshop

A NARROW home that is just 8ft 1in and one inch has hit the London market for £700,000.

The two-storey property in East Dulwich, South London is narrower than a double-decker bus and was converted from a derelict workshop.

A flat was built first above the workshop in 2004 before the ground floor was converted in 2018.

Now the home has two upstairs bedrooms, one bathroom, an open-plan kitchen and living room and even a small outdoor patio garden for entertaining guests.

The kitchen has been fitted with marble counters and the bathroom has a modern tiled finished.

Christopher Burton, head of Knight Frank's Dulwich office, told Homes and Property: "This great little house offers a south-facing garden, carefully considered layout and modern design features.

"It's ideal for those who have decided to move out of London following lockdown but still want a stylish, low-maintenance pied-à-terre for their [less frequent] trips to the office or central London amenities."

The estate agent added that the property is near trendy cafes, bars and restaurants on Lordship Lane as well as direct transport links into central London.

Last month, a narrow house in West London went on sale for £1.9million.

It is just 7ft 9in and still has space for two bedrooms, two bathrooms and even a tiny study thanks to its “meticulous Scandinavian design”.

The Victorian property has windows on three sides and is capped by a giant skylight which allows sunlight to reach the ground floor.

The house’s footprint is roughly triangular with the front much wider than the rear.
