Would you fork out £235,000 for a house just over 83 inches wide?

Looking to hop on the property ladder but got a bit of a thin wallet? How about getting your hands on a house in Harringay for £235,000? Bargain! Just a slight catch though, it’s a tiny 83 inches wide.

This ‘house’ was once a driveway between the two neighbouring homes, but was transformed into an abode in 1996 and now features a reception room, kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor, two bedrooms upstairs and a loft. Sheesh, it must be like an iceberg.

After years as a £1,300 per-month rental property, three months ago a property developer bought the place and it’s being auctioned off on October 1.

Believe it or not, this isn’t actually London’s thinnest house. Apparently that award goes to a property on Goldhawk Road, Shepherd’s Bush, which measures in at a slight 65 inches wide at its skinniest point and has an estimated value of around £950,000. Wow, so we guess £235,000 is a bargain in comparison? (Further proof that London’s property market is ridiculous.) FYI up north you can get a four-bed detached house for near the same price.
