Imagine living in a three-bedroom house in Hammersmith… you’d be living the dream.
Well you now can as this unique property has just been put on the market.
It may set you back a few £££ though – £895,000 to be precise.
Oh, and it’s only seven-foot wide.
The property, which was built in the 1850s, is believed to have originally been used as a Victorian laundry house.
And while it was once detached, it is now an end-of-terrace property which has been converted into a home.
Floorplans show that at its widest, the home in seven-feet one-inch wide, yet it still has almost 1,000 sq/ft of space, making it larger than the average newbuild.
This is thanks to accommodation being spread over four floors, with the kitchen and reception room on the ground floor.
Go upstairs and there is a bedroom, toilet, bathroom and roof terrace.
There are two bedrooms on the second floor and two studies and a further terrace on the top floor.
The home in Hammersmith, West London has just been put up for sale with Dexters for an asking price of a mere £895,000.
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 – it’s 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 in a delightfully quiet but prime West London location.’
For the past 13 years it has been the home of Carsten Freisberg, who has fully renovated the property.
He said: ‘It’s a shame to be leaving what has been a wonderful home in a peaceful and friendly neighbourhood.
‘We have made many changes to the house since moving in, including removing some of the walls and doors to open out the space, and have fully renovated the house, adding bright, light interior colours and a minimalistic interior to enhance the sense of space.
‘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 13 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.’
With a £900,000 price-tag, the narrow home is four times the price of the average home in England and Wales, which is currently £220,000 according to the Land Registry.
However, it is one of the cheapest three-bedroom homes for sale in Hammersmith.
According to Rightmove, the average house in Hammersmith and Fulham sold of £950,000 last year.
The majority of the sales were flats, which went for an average of £950,000, but a typical terrace in the affluent area costs a whopping £1.5 million.
Mr Freisberg added: ‘In terms of the interiors, exposed timber staircases, buttresses and pillars give the house a charming almost boat-like feel.
‘The North/South orientation of the house means that it remains warm and sunny throughout the day, adding to the relaxing feel.
‘It is a lovely home in a fantastic location, which would suit a young professional couple looking to buy their first home together.
‘The location is incredibly convenient for getting around London – there are four tube lines accessible nearby, with central London twenty minutes away.’
