Want the skinny on the latest proof that London’s property market is bonkers?
Cast your gaze over this 10ft-wide house, now on the market for £800,000 in leafy South London.
Nestled between two larger and - let’s face it - proper houses on Barry Road in trendy East Dulwich, the ‘skinny home’ barely extends beyond 120-inches throughout the two floors, yet manages to cajole in two floors, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, gallery-style kitchen, living room and back garden - ‘private rear garden’ in estate agent speak.
It also comes with some off-street parking, which these days tends to be quite the coup itself. Particularly in such a popular area as Dulwich.
According to Evening Standard’s Homes & Property, prices in the area have skyrocketed by 53 per cent in the last three years alone, partly thanks to good schools and impressive transport links including a nine minute train journey to Victoria and 22 minute train to King’s Cross.
Though working out to over £1,000 per square foot, any prospective owners might be worth advising to think about moving up to Manchester, where for the same price you could buy a sprawling castle and be next door neighbours with Alex Ferguson. Probably.
