Why go wider when you can go bigger?
That’s the approach to this building, which is five stories high… and only 4 meters wide.
For £4 million you could buy this Georgian terraced house, situated in a quiet enclave of Catherine Place; a spark plug area of Westminster, London.
That huge price tag would get you a house that offers 3,238 square feet of space, in a structure as wide as the length of a Mini Cooper.
Despite its slim stature, the house doesn’t feel cramped in the slightest.
On the ground floor is a spacious kitchen and dining room, with natural light from the patio doors leading to the private garden to the rear, plus a garage and utility room.
Head down to the lower floor and you’ll find an open plan double reception room, plus the spa area – complete with your own sauna, large shower and hot tub.
There’s a spiral staircase to take you back up (there’s an elevator too, in case you don’t feel like scrambling), and as you go up to the first floor there are two bedrooms, one of which is en-suite .
Upstairs are two more bedrooms, and upstairs, you guessed it, two more bedrooms.
That’s six bedrooms in all, but Dexters, who is selling the property, suggests using the two smaller ones as home offices or walk-in closets.
However, you may want to take the top floor bedroom as it has access to a private roof terrace on the top floor.
All of this is on the market for a whopping £4,000,000. That’s steep, but standard in the area – Catherine Place has major London attractions on its doorstep, including Buckingham Palace.
There are plenty of chic restaurants and bars in nearby Soho, and the buyer can enjoy walks to the green spaces of St James’s Park and Green Park.
Plus, you’ll probably have a dreamy commute if you work in the city – the house is a short walk from Victoria and Westminster tube stations.
Harry Laflin, Danager at Dexters Westminster said: ‘If you like traditional properties that tick all the boxes, chances are this space isn’t for you.
“However, if you don’t like boxing and entertaining, like the quirky and charming and feel like there’s more to life than two against two, come and see a truly special home.”
