The current owner, advertising executive Aimee Luther, purchased The Slim House in 2014.

Ms Luther said: ‘Until I bought Slim House four years’ ago, I had previously thought that look-alike Victorian flats were my only option.

‘This house has a slice of everything but on a slightly slimmer scale and no downsides of having neighbours above or below.

‘I have loved living in a fabulous part of SW11 in the heart of a friendly, local neighbourhood and I’ve no doubt that the next owner will have equal pride in owning this piece of architectural brilliance.’

Jasper Colliver, head of Savills Wandsworth who is selling the home, said: ‘Its unique proportions make The Slim House a really rare find and one of just a handful in London.

‘Having been extended by its former owners, the property has been cleverly designed with well-placed storage and bespoke fittings to maximise the 1,058 square feet of living accommodation.
