In the Shepherds Bush neighborhood of London, an unusual five-storey building is up for sale (£950,000, about USD $1.3 mil). And while AFP reports that it's just 5'6" wide at its narrowest point, British realty company Winkworth, which is handling the sale, has rounded it up in the description.
"…Despite its surface oddness [the building] is actually very easy to live with. Six-foot-wide and arranged over five floors this astonishing house offers flexible accommodation. Some worry that they would feel compressed in a six-foot-wide house but counter-intuitively this is a space that works in much the way a luxury yacht does.
"There are almost too many features to mention but here are a few as a taster - Aga powered, Nest controlled central heating system, beautiful period parquets flooring, original deco bath tub, roof terrace and double full height glass doors leading from the glazed dining area out onto the recently and brilliantly planted private patio garden."
It took a bit of scrutinizing before I realized how they'd squeezed five floors into what we can clearly see has a three-storey façade. In addition to the basement level, the second and third floors in the floorplan (which is what we Americans would call the third and fourth floors) essentially bisect the uppermost façade window.
There's a fun, if somewhat clunky-to-navigate, 360-degree virtual tour available for viewing here.
