2.3m-wide 'slim house' on sale for $1.9 million

A 2.3m wide London home dubbed the 'slim house' is on the market for NZD$1.9 million (£1 million).

The Battersea property is narrower than a three-seater couch and requires custom-made 'skinny furniture'.

Owner Aimee Luther says she absolutely loves it.

"It's the talk of the town," she told 7 News.

"Everybody comes and has a look at it and I often find people trying to touch each side of the house outside."

It was originally an access road between two other properties, and converted to a house in the 1800s.

While it doesn't look very spacious from the outside, the three-level house boasts four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a garden, and substantial specially-built storage.

"I think the trick of the trade is to have somewhere to put everything," she told 7 News.

"Everything needs a home."

Ms Luther is moving to the country, and so has put the slim house on the market.
