London Thin House
The thinnest house in Britain? Quite probably. Image –
  • 'Probably' the thinnest house in England, says the selling agency
  • 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, a rooftop terrace and a private patio
  • Property for sale for around A$1.7M, in west end of London

Built 150 years ago, the former Shepherd’s Bush hat shop in Goldhawk Road is a mere 6 foot wide. That’s less than two metres or an average man’s height, sideways.

Converted into a five-floor residential property in the 1990s, the house is on the market for just under a million pounds, or A$1.7 million.


What will a million quid get you? Two bedrooms, one bathroom and a roof terrace, that’s what. And a private patio garden.

Total area is 96 square metres, across five levels, so there’s not much on each floor. The selling agency, Winkworth, describes it as “quite probably the thinnest house in England.”


The “space works in much the way a luxury yacht does,” continues the advertising material.

One supposes it might very much feel like a luxury yacht, without all that swaying to movements of waves and swell.

London Thin House

Bounded by Hammersmith to the south, Holland Park and trendy Notting Hill to the east, Shepherd’s Bush is a popular west end London district, home to the Queens Park Rangers ground (Loftus Road) and BBC’s Television Centre.

London Thin House

Unique is an underused word, but this property is one of a kind.


The property is offered for sale freehold by Winkworth Shepherds Bush & Acton.
