'Skinniest flat in London' goes on sale for £795,000

A London flat which is so narrow it looks like you could barely live inside it, has gone on the market.

From the outside, you’d be forgiven to think the building is just a façade with no one living there – because can you really fit a bed and a sofa in a building so thin?

Turns out, you can. There’s actually a lot more space than you might think.

Behind the door you’ll find a former artist’s studio, which has been turned into a beautiful two-bedroom flat – thought to be one of the narrowest in the city.

At one side, the flat measures just 6ft across and the widest point is 13ft.

Despite the shape, the clever design, white walls and large windows make it feel very spacious.


Inside, the designer has managed to squeeze in two bedrooms, a living room, two shower rooms, a kitchen and there’s even a small south-facing garden at the back.

It also comes with an outbuilding for storage if you’re worried about where you’ll put all your stuff.


The flat is close to South Kensington, Sloane Square and Knightsbridge underground stations, in one of London’s most desirable areas.

The description on Purple Bricks says: ‘Thurloe Square is situated in the heart of the Thurloe/Smith Charity Conservation 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.’

So, even if you’re worried about the lack of space, the quality of the neighbourhood might just pique your interest.
