One of London‘s narrowest homes which is just 7ft 9in wide at its narrowest point has gone on sale for £1.9million.

The Victorian cottage in Kensington, West London, still has space for two bedrooms, two bathrooms and even a tiny study – with estate agents saying a ‘meticulous Scandinavian design’ has created the space. 

The corner property has windows on three sides and is capped by a giant skylight which allows sunlight to travel down to the ground floor. The property’s footprint is roughly triangular, with the front much wider than the rear.

Visitors arrive on the ground floor which has a bedroom, bathroom and study. Downstairs on the lower ground floor there is a bedroom, bathroom, outdoor space and a utility room.

The first floor is home to a reception and dining room and a kitchen, and there are further steps up to the 13ft by 30ft roof terrace. The average property value on the road, Redfield Lane, is £1.8million. 

‘The lower ground and ground floor have been executed in such a way that this house lends itself to sharing, both the bottom floors are self-contained suites, extremely private, no crossing paths in the night.’

Mr Stone said he believes the house’s configuration would suit sharers, a couple or a small family and also believes the new owners will buy as much for the area as the property. The nearest Underground station is Earl’s Court.
