A very slender house—measuring just 7 feet 7 inches, or 91 inches wide—slots itself between two wider buildings in Clapham, London. Its exaggerated proportions are comical but for the fact they look so darn cute, like something out of a children’s storybook (or, in the case of the fictional Slender Man, a nightmare).
In 2013, local firm Alma-Nac renovated and extended the three-story home (an original “gap house”), adding an extra room to each floor and increasing the livable area by more than a third to 1,058 square feet. A sloping roof with skylights tops the residence.
The so-called Slim House is narrower than a Tube carriage, as London publications like to point out, but it still features generous living spaces, thanks to a smart and efficient design that takes advantage of the rear of the property. The main floor encompasses not one but two reception rooms, separated by a staircase. Then a kitchen, breakfast room, and access to a landscaped garden, which is 48 feet in length, follow.
Up one level, the master bedroom with dressing room and shower, and an additional bedroom are found, and above that are a further two bedrooms with family bathroom and a loft storage area. Curious how much? It’s offered at a cool £1 million, or about $1.4 million.
