3 skinny houses for sale in London and New York

Architectural oddities that maximise square footage

Narrow houses are both curious and beguiling. Occupying tiny slivers of ‘leftover’ land in urban locations, these infill dwellings have a shrunken Alice in Wonderland look with rectangular layouts.

Skinny homes present design challenges but offer great creative scope to maximise their diminutive plots. Extensions can add space in any direction and knocking-through walls can dial-up light levels and extend sightlines, while good storage is a must.

Here, we’ve found three whip-thin renovated homes in London and New York, which appear much more spacious than their facades might suggest.
