If you like original houses, this one might just be for you! It is located in the beautiful city of London, UK and is known as the "narrowest house" in the British capital.
The adorable mansion is located in Shepherd’s Bush. And when we say it narrow, we really mean it! The house is only 2.3 meters wide!
The building is nicknamed “Slim House” and has been popular for a long time. Many owners have lived there over the years, including fashion photographer Juergen Teller who stayed there in the '90s. And in 2006, Simon Woods, "Pride and Prejudice" actor acquired it.
The last owner of the "Slim House" is a lawyer who bought it in 2009 for about $700,000. Now, having to move abroad, he is putting it back on the market for the tidy sum of $1,300,000.
The house catches the eye with its tall façade, which is painted in dark blue. It is nearly impossible not to notice the hanging lamp in the shape of a bowler hat on the storefront. This unusual element is a reminder that the home used to be a hat shop!
The ground floor is also the former reception of the store and leads to the garden level, which has a slight drop. The layout made it possible to create a beautiful living room, between living area, kitchen and dining room. At about 7 meters, it is the longest room in the house, which overlooks a charming little garden.
When you get upstairs, you realize that the house offers significant space. It must be said that it has three floors, which are connected by a spiral staircase. In total, this unusual house has around 100 square meters of living space.
The first floor has two bedrooms. The second can also be used as an office.
The terrace at the far end offers a beautiful view of West London.
On the second floor, there is a bathroom and a shower room as well as a wardrobe space.
Finally, on the third floor is the master bedroom with its large built-in bed. It has been configured as a mezzanine, with an empty space in the bathroom.
In the sale offer, the real estate agency Winkworth, is full of praise for the "Slim House", mentioning that "despite its unusual dimensions, this unique house is very pleasant to live in, with a space that functions as way of a luxury yacht. "
