Originally the stable access to the rear of the high street, the home which is just 7ft 7in wide, was one of the original ‘gap houses’.
The four-bedroom three-storey home is located in a conservation area in Battersea and has featured in several property shows including George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces.
In 2013, London based architects’ studio Alma-nac designed a three storey extension to create an extra room on each floor, increasing floor space by more than a third to 1,058 square feet.
For the £1 million price tag, buyers will have two reception rooms on the ground floor with a kitchen breakfast room.
The second floor includes a master bedroom with dressing room and shower room as well as an additional bedroom.
A further two bedrooms and a family bathroom can be found on the third floor, with a loft above.
Though the house may be narrow, it boasts a large 48ft landscaped garden.>This creepy bus stop advert is making people very uncomfortable
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.
‘Its modern specification and location – just minutes’ from Northcote Road and Clapham Junction – coupled with its attractive facade make The Slim House a truly special home.
‘Interest has been wide ranging. To date we have had interest from downsizers wanting to retain a number of bedrooms and outside space, as well as local couples and those seeking a London base with good local transport connections.’
