London flat that is just 13FT WIDE and looks so narrow from the outside you could barely live inside it goes on the market for almost £800,000

  • Despite measuring just 53.9sqm, the home, in Kensington and Chelsea, hides spacious and well-lit rooms

This is the ‘Tardis-style’ London flat which is so narrow that from the outside it appears almost uninhabitable.

But despite being just 13 feet wide, the property, in the exclusive borough of Kensington and Chelsea, is hiding spacious and well-lit rooms –  and could be yours for £795,000.

The red-brick home on Thurloe Square almost looks like a prop on a film set, but stepping inside reveals a space much larger than expected – much like the time travelling Tardis phone box from Doctor Who.    

Prospective buyers will spot how plenty of tricks have helped make the rooms look more generous – despite the home measuring just 53.9sqm (580sqft).

The property even has its own terraced garden – a rarity in the city of London. 

And ideally located in the heart of South Kensington, there are a wide variety of restaurants and cafes just a stone’s throw away.

It is also located just a two minutes’ walk from South Kensington Tube station on the District Line.  

A description of the property on Purple Bricks reads: ‘Located on one of the best Garden Squares in Kensington and Chelsea with direct access to a south-facing patio/terrace as well as access to the beautiful and dog-friendly Thurloe Square Gardens. 

‘Thurloe Square is situated in the heart of the Thurloe/Smith Charity Conservation area and is ideally positioned in the heart of South Kensington to take advantage of the wide variety of shops, restaurants and cafes of the immediate area in Chelsea and Knightsbridge as well as excellent transport links that include Circle, District and Piccadilly lines.’ 

The home was once an art studio that was built on land left over after houses were demolished to make way for the London Underground at the end of the nineteenth century. 

The government at the time stopped the Metropolitan Railway Company from building an entrance to South Kensington tube station in Thurloe Square, leaving space for the so-called ‘Thin House’.
