Don’t Be Narrow-Minded! 84-Inch Wide House Up For Sale


You would rightly imagine that £235,000 would get you a substantially sized home with many different amenities in most parts of the country. Not in the London though after a property in Harringay measuring a mere 84-inches (7-foot wide) has been put up for sale on Rightmove, thought to be one of the narrowest homes in Britain.

The building actually sits where there used to be a driveway between two households and surprisingly contains a reception room, loft, kitchen and bathroom on the ground floor and two bedrooms upstairs. It also has a roof terrace and untested gas-fired central heating system.

A spokesman for the agents responsible for its sale said: “It’s a very unique house, to say the least, in a great location. The property would certainly appeal to an owner-occupier or rental investor.”

It will go up for auction in October and £235,000 is the guide price so it could realistically sell for more, presumably bought by someone slim in stature.

The owner believes that someone will want it but has contingency plans otherwise: “My friends said I was mad to buy it. But I knew I had to. I’m confident there are quirky people who will want to buy it — as it’s cheaper than many one-bedroom homes in this area. You can get £1,300 rent from a place like this. If I don’t sell it I’ll hang on to it.”

If you feel closed in and cramped for space when spending time inside your home then why not look into extending it with a conservatory or orangery from Permaframe.

Each of our designs are extremely spacious and provide a generous amount of floor space that you can utilise in all manner of ways.
