This west London property could be the narrowest house up for sale in the city, measuring just six foot wide.

The two-bedroom skinny home is located in Shepherds Bush and occupies an exceptionally thin slice of land between a pair of high street shops. Listed for just under £1m with Winkworths, the infill home is set over five floors, including a dining room that opens onto a leafy back yard.

Square-footage is of course limited, but what it lacks in width, it makes up for vertically and with quirky features, including a bedroom accessible via a trap door and a bathroom that appears to have a mezzanine level. There’s also a surprising amount of storage that has been cleverly built into the property, meaning it works hard for every inch.

And if future owners start to feel claustrophobic, they can always escape to the house’s back garden or roof terrace which, if still tiny, at least has views over the surrounding neighbourhood.
