The Skinny House paves way to creative house building

One developers ‘out-of-the-box’ thinking has led to Westminster Council approving plans to build a three-bedroom home in an old alleyway. The alleyway was once used as a path to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, which has now closed.

The 10-foot-wide home will be built between two commercial buildings on Euston Road in Central London – next to Great Portland Street tube station. The 1,500sqft home will have three-bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fourth-floor terrace and an open plan kitchen. All rooms will be on different floors.

Surrounded by restaurants and bars, and with Regent’s Park on its doorstep, there will be someone keen to buy this property.

Henry Pryor, Buying Agent and ‘BBC’s favourite property expert’ said: ‘I presume that you will have to walk sideways into this house. This is of course just another example of the madness of the London housing market and the lengths that people now have to go to find somewhere to call home.’

How much will this property cost?

Estate agents in Marylebone are unable to put a value on this house. However, similar properties are for sale at over £2m.
