A tiny studio flat in one of London‘s most unusual residential blocks has been put on the market for almost £900,000.

The one-bed apartment is in a building on upmarket Thurloe Square which is known as The Thin House.

But while one end of the triangular block is not much more than six-foot wide, the apartment available has more practical dimensions.

Described as an artist’s studio, the flat has a drawing room, kitchen, bathroom and the bedroom which is on a mezzanine.

The 600sq/ft pied-a-terre, which is two-thirds the size of the average new build, has been put on the market with W.A.Ellis for £895,000 – more than four-times the average house price in England.

It has the same asking price as Carbisdale Castle, a stunning property in the Highlands of Scotland with 40 bedrooms.

Daniel Wiggin, director at W.A.Ellis, said: “Listed as one of London‘s ‘five weirdest buildings’, this development really stands out from the rest due to its unusually narrow depth – there is really only space for one room across its width.

“There isn’t anything else quite like it in London, and certainly nothing similar on the market.

“The unit we are selling is such a rare chance to own an original 19th Century artist’s studio, set in a truly iconic building, with the added benefits of views over a classic London garden square, and being set in the heart of Knightsbridge.”

On top of the £895,000 asking price, the buyer will have to pay £35,000 in stamp duty and a £1,944 per year service charge.
