Well we are all used to skinny jeans but now, it seems, we have our first skinny house - in Ealing, London in fact.  

Eight foot wide (about the length of a basketball player)  and on sale by Savills for just shy of £600k. 

The total square footage is a compact 560 sq ft set over three floors. 

Sandwiched as it is between two existing blocks you can't help but think of a myriad of legal issues: rights to light, party walls, cross easements it's all there potentially. You really have to admire the creativity and tenacity of whoever developed this project.
