The narrowest home in London – which stands at only 1.67m wide – is now up for grabs, with an eye-popping asking price of $1.81 million (£995,000).
Some parts of the five-storey property in Shepherd’s Bush, West London, aren’t actually wide enough for a grown adult to lie in, TheSun reports.
And at just 7.3m long, the house that was once a hat shop is shorter than half a tennis court.
Even though it is small in size, it will be a tight squeeze on any budding buyers’ budget, having almost doubled in value in a decade.
It was last sold in 2009 for $1.09 million (£595,000) to a lawyer who is now moving abroad.
With an asking price of nearly £1 million, the tiny house costs more than a 16th-century castle in Wales that went up for sale in early September.
The former store, whose external facade is painted in blue, still features a shop front with a bowler-hat-shaped lamp in the window.
Inside, it has a parquet floor, an original art deco bathtub and patterned wallpaper.
A 7m long kitchen on the lower ground floor includes a forest green Aga providing central heating.
Simon Woods, the Pride and Prejudice actor married to Christopher Bailey, Burberry’s former chief executive, previously bought the house for $892,000 (£488,500) in 2006.
The property was also the home of fashion photographer Juergen Teller in the 1990s.
Simon Waller, who is handling the sale of the property at Winkworth, said it is the smallest house in London.
Being under 170cm wide, some parts of the house are not even long enough for a bed or for a person to lie down, with the average height of a man in the UK reportedly 1.75m.
On the lower ground floor, which at 3m has the widest spaces in the building, there is a long dining area with double height glazed doors leading out to a patio and garden.
The reception room on the ground floor measures 3.5m by 2.2m is slightly wider than other parts of the property.
The first floor, which features a terrace with views of west London, is connected to the ground floor by a spiral staircase.
There are two bedrooms on the first floor, with one backing on to the terrace. On the second floor, which is similar in size to the first and third floors, there are a shower room, a bathroom and a dressing room.
One more bedroom can be found on the third floor and has a built-in bed.
The agent told The Sun he once attended a New Year’s Eve party hosted by a casting director at the house in 1994 that went on for four days.
“It was terribly bohemian – you could get lost in the different worlds over the five floors,” Mr Walker said.
“Each owner has sprinkled their own fairy dust on it.
“The current owner likens it to a classic car – she’s tinkering with it constantly.”
For a similar price, you could buy a five-bedroom house around 90 minutes drive away in Kent, which comes with a 10-metre indoor swimming pool, a sauna and a gym.
