One of the narrowest houses in the capital, only 8 feet 1 inch wide – less than a double-decker bus – has come on the market.

The two-story estate in East Dulwich, south London, has been remodeled by an abandoned workshop to create 570 square meters of living space – and can be bought for GBP 700,000.

An apartment was first built above the workshop in 2004 before the ground floor was rebuilt two years ago.

Now the super slim house has two bedrooms upstairs, a bathroom, an open "kitchen entertainment area" and even a small garden in the courtyard.

The kitchen is adorned with marble surfaces, while there is also a shower bath tiled with subways and crystal doors to the secluded rear garden.

Christopher Burton, head of the Knight Frank office in Dulwich, told Homes and Property: “This great little house offers a south-facing garden, thoughtful layout and modern design features.

"It's ideal for those who have decided to move out of London after the block, but still want a stylish, low-maintenance pied-à-terre for their [less frequent] trips to the office or downtown London."

The real estate agent adds that the house is ideally located for lively cafes, bars and restaurants on Lordship Lane and for direct transport links to central London.

There are also some popular schools nearby, including Harris Primary Academy, Charter East Dulwich Secondary School, Dulwich College, Dulwich Prep, Alleyn & # 39; s School, and James Allen & # 39; s Girls & # 39; School.

The property is one of several quirky, narrow houses that have hit the market in the capital in recent years.

A 99-inch, two-story house at the end of a three-story terrace in Denmark Hill, built on what was once someone's side garden, was provided in 2014.

Just last month, a Victorian cottage in Kensington, only 7 feet 9 inches wide at its narrowest point, was put up for sale for £ 1.9 million.

The kitchen is adorned with marble surfaces, while there is also a shower bath tiled with subways and Crittall doors to the secluded rear garden
