A house believed to be London’s narrowest is up for sale in Hammersmith .
Described as “a real piece of Victorian London history”, the property in Kilmarsh Road measures just seven feet across at its widest point.
The three-bedroom house is on the market for £855,000 and is a former laundry, according the estate agents selling the home.
The average house price in the road is £975,926, according to property website, Zoopla.
The house comes on the market at the same time as another unique property in Chelsea, believed to be one of London’s smallest homes .
Simon Triglia, sales manager at the Hammersmith office of Dexters, said: “This property is truly unique; reputed to have been a Victorian laundry house built circa 1855, remarkably the property was originally detached but now forms part of a terrace that was built slightly later.
“The old laundry was fed by a stream that flowed alongside the building and wound its way down to the river Thames – a real piece of Victorian London history.
“Now a private freehold residence in the well-heeled and fashionable Brackenbury Village area, this quirky house offers great value square footage set over four floors in a delightfully quiet but prime West London location.”
Owner Carsten Freisberg said the house is fully renovated, and despite its size, has plenty of rooms and outdoor spaces.
He said: “I have lived in the property for thirteen years and it’s a shame to be leaving what has been a wonderful home in a peaceful and friendly neighbourhood.
“Despite the unusual dimensions of the house, it actually offers great square footage overall; it has eight separate rooms along with three lovely outdoor spaces.
"This enabled me to get on the housing ladder thirteen years ago, as the same square footage in a flat or a more conventional house were going for a lot more money at the time.”
He believes the property would suit a young professional couple looking to buy their first home together.
