This beautiful house has gone on sale in London for £700,000 – but the whole property is narrower than a double decker bus.

The two-bedroom house in East Dulwich, south London, is understood to be one of the narrowest in the city.

It was originally a workshop with an apartment above added in 2004 but was converted into one house with 570sq ft of space two years ago.

From the front, the traditional doors still have a warehouse vibe but behind there, they’ve managed to squeeze in two bedrooms, a bathroom and a open-plan kitchen and entertaining area.

Each room is beautifully finished in a modern style and there’s even a small south-facing garden.

The whole building is just over 8 ft wide so you might have to be more creative with your furniture choices.

To put it into perspective, a London double-decker bus is 8ft 3in wide.

The light colours and glass doors to let lots of light in still make it look quite roomy though.

Despite the tight space, it’s still pricey due to the location. It’s 0.8 miles to East Dulwich Station and 1.4 miles to Peckham Rye for travelling into central London but it’s also close to the cafes, bars and restaurants on Lordship Lane, for relaxing at the weekend.

Christopher Burton, head of Knight Frank’s Dulwich office told Homes and Property: ‘This great little house offers a south-facing garden, carefully considered layout and modern design features.

‘It’s ideal for those who have decided to move out of London following lockdown but still want a stylish, low-maintenance pied-à-terre for their [less frequent] trips to the office or central London amenities.’
