7ft wide house goes on sale for £1 million


This four-bedroom property in Battersea, London, is 7ft 7in wide and has just gone on the market for £1 million with Savills. It was designed by architects alma-nac and has popped up on various programmes including Grand Designs and George Clarke's Amazing Spaces. Known as 'The Slim House' it actually has a total floor space of just over 1,000sq ft, a 48ft garden, two reception rooms, kitchen breakfast room, 48ft garden, two bedrooms, shower room and a dressing room on the first floor, and two more bedrooms and bathroom on the second floor. Here's what alma-nac says about it (more photos at the link above):
"We were approached by a young couple in order to extend their slim plot on the busy high street of St John’s Hill, Clapham, London. The uniquely narrow proportions, measuring just 2.3m internally throughout, presented certain challenges in terms of organising the spaces. alma-nac managed to construct the Slim House, on budget and within these tight constraints. The characteristic sloped roof greatly reduces the cost of construction, with staggered rooflights providing views out while ensuring light penetrates ot the centre of the property.A light well was introduced and a cranked floor plan provides a lofty double height dining space, and generous storage on each floor."
