Deep breath in, people! Britain's narrowest house has hit the market and it is a rib-tickling 83in wide. Oh, and it will set you back about a quarter of a million pounds.

The tiny terraced home in Harringay, North London is set to be auctioned on 1 October on property website for £235,000.

Just 83in wide!

The super-slender property was built over a driveway in 1996 and is barely wider than its front door.

Yet in that miniscule slice of space is squeezed a reception room, a kitchen and a bathroom on the ground floor, with two bedrooms on the top floor. There is also a loft.

The property developer who bought the shoebox home three months ago, told The Sun: "It's unique – the narrowest property on the market in London. My friends said I was mad to buy it but I knew I had to."

The man, who did not want to be named, added: "I'm confident there are quirky people who will want to buy it – as it's cheaper than many one-bedroom homes in this area."

Claustrophobics look away! This home really gives "cosy" a new meaning...
