Property of the Day: The Slim House, Battersea

This unique home has been featured on ‘Grand Designs’

THE PROPERTY: Officially the thinnest house outside of Zone One at 7ft 7in, this property is no wider than a tube carriage. It was originally the stable access from the high street before it was made into a house and was extended in 2013 to add an extra room on each floor. The property is now 1,058 sqare feet.

THE LOCATION: St. John’s Road is in a highly sought-after area of the capital, within walking distance of Northcote Road, Clapham Junction, Wandsworth Common and Battersea Park.

THE INTERIOR: Despite its seemingly small size, the three-storey home packs in four double bedrooms, two reception-rooms and a spacious loft. The interiors are sleek but homely with solid-wood kitchen table tops, walk-in dressing-rooms and exposed brick walls. The open-plan kitchen, dining spaceand and living-room lead out onto a 48-foot landscaped garden.

WHY WE LOVE IT: There is a one-of-a-kind ‘ski slope’ roof at the back of the house that bathes each storey in natural light.
