Would you pay £800,000 for this 10-foot wide house in London's East Dulwich?

What's the latest?

They say good things come in small packages. And this 10-foot wide house in East Dulwich appears to be a case in point.

The slimline property is the same width as a children’s outdoor trampoline!

It comprises two bedrooms, a bathroom, a modern open-plan reception room and kitchen, off-street parking and a private garden – all for a cool £800,000.

The narrow house, on the market with Foxtons, is a short walk from Peckham Rye Park and a variety of shops, bars and restaurants on Lordship Lane.

Who does it affect?

Covering just 190 sq ft, the converted flower shop on Barry Road is bound to catch the eye of first-time buyers and investors looking for a rental opportunity in London.

Sounds interesting. What's the background?

Average property values in the area have jumped £206,478, or 44% in the last five years, according to Zoopla.

But despite price hikes in this corner of south east London, homes are considered better value compared with neighbourhoods to the north and west of the city.

Buyers interested in this particular freehold property will have to fork out a little over the typical £675,739 house price in the neighbourhood. But it still pales in comparison with homes on the priciest streets in the area, which include:

Eynella Road, where the typical property will set you back an eye-watering £2,111,955

Woodwarde Road, where homes cost an average £1,451,656

Townley Road, where price tags tend to be £1,333,423
