London’s thinnest home on the market £795k has been listed for two months

The London property market is known to be extreme at times – from million pound studio apartments to houses with swimming pools on the roof.

But, have you ever wondered what it’s like to live in the capital’s thinnest home?

A two bedroom flat in South Kensington – 5 Thurloe Square – has gone up for sale for a whopping £795,000.

The unusual property is only 6ft wide at its narrowest point meaning a tall person could touch from one side to the other laying down.

The thin house has been on the market for two months and is situated in the basement.

Plus, the flat lies right next to a tube line that runs across the back of the property, reports MyLondon.

The house looks a little like an optical illusion with its wedge shape and unusual set up, but there’s space for a cosy couch, dining table and even a double bed in the boudoir.

Meaning we’ve certainly seen London homes which are more cramped.

Plus, there’s a small but modern kitchen and even some outside space with a long terrace.

Rightmove describes the flat on its website as: “A beautiful two bedroom, two bathroom home in fantastic decorative order in historic former artist studios."

It continued: “Located on one of the best Garden Squares in Kensington and Chelsea with direct access to a South facing Patio / Terrace as well as access to the beautiful and dog-friendly Thurloe Square Gardens."

“Thurloe Square is situated in the heart of the Thurloe/Smith Charity Conervation area and is ideally positioned in the heart of South Kensington to take advantage of the wide variety of shops, restaurants and Cafes of the immediate area in Chelsea and Knightsbridge as well as excellent transport links that include Circle, District and Piccadilly lines.”

The high price for the home is likely caused by the location of the flat which is a desirable and high-end zone.

As part of one of the richest neighbourhoods in the capital the property has great transport links and lots of attractive shops and activities nearby.

And, the traditional square where the flat is located contains a private communal garden for use by the residents.

You can also walk to the Victoria & Albert Museum in just a few minutes – now that’s central!
