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.
A tiny but beautifully renovated house that measures just eight-foot wide in Ealing is on the market for £595,000.
