Slender yet functional tiny home

Tiny homes are not something new to densely-populated global cities like Hong Kong, but one could hardly see anything like this tiny home in London — a “skinny” yet stylish multi-storey home that even comes with a roof terrace and your own landscaped garden.

This uniquely designed house is located in Goldhawk Road, Shepherd’s Bush in London. The six-foot-wide house, which claims to be the thinnest house in London, may change most general perceptions of tiny homes — cramped space with poor air ventilation and minimal sunlight.

Listed for sale by London-based Winkworth Shepherd’s Bush and Acton Estate Agents, the house which is painted in blue has a price tag of £950,000 (RM5.17 million).

Despite looking very tiny from outside, the house is actually not that small as it spreads to five floors with a total built-up area of 1,034 sq ft, where the lower ground floor serves as dining area, garden room, kitchen and a private garden.

The ground floor is where the main entrance and reception is located. The first floor consists of two bedrooms and a roof terrace. The entire second floor is designed to be a bathroom and dressing room, and finally, the third floor is where the master bedroom is located.

According to the property brochure available on London’s property listing website Winkworth, some of the special features of this property are an AGA-powered, nest-controlled central heating system, beautiful period parquet flooring, original deco bathtub, roof terrace and double full-height glass doors leading from the glazed dining area out onto the recently and brilliantly planted private patio garden.

The company describes the house like this: “Unique is an oft overused word, especially by estate agents. Perhaps this overuse is why it feels so completely inadequate when it comes to describing this genuinely individual property which, despite its surface oddness, is actually very easy to live with. 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”.

The property is situated between a private clinic and a hairdresser in Shepherd’s Bush and in close proximity to Westfield shopping centre, as well as the public transport of Shepherd’s Bush Green, the commercial focal point of Shepherd’s Bush.

Shepherd’s Bush is a district of West London in England, which is currently classified as a deprived area and identified as a major metropolitan centre in the London Plan.

While primarily residential in character, the district is well served by commercial and shopping areas, independent shops, pubs and restaurants.
