Dexters never fail to be impressed by some of the deceptively spacious London properties we’re invited to value. That’s why we’re thrilled to be marketing this unique Hammersmith house, as featured in the Times, the Mail on Sunday, the Daily Mail, the Metro, the Daily Star, the Daily Express, the Sun, the Mirror, ITV News, Ideal Home, Concord Register and the Evening Standard, as shown below.
Despite its slim dimensions, this end of terrace property packs almost 1,000sq ft and eight separate rooms into four storeys of sunny space, with a roof terrace and garden for good measure. While this layout might not be for everyone, it’s worth noting that the average British family home also measures around 1,000sq ft.
Vendor Carsten Freisberg makes an excellent point about being resourceful when it comes to getting onto the property ladder in London - without the London price tag. Purchasing an unconventional property and reconfiguring the space has certainly worked for him.
Another major advantage to this Hammersmith property is its location in popular Brackenbury Village. You’ll find Brackenbury is a friendly, lively community, home to numerous shops, eateries and a gym, plus outstanding primary, secondary and independent schools. Westfield shopping centre is nearby, while a clutch of underground stations can be found within a half-mile radius.
Brackenbury Village is characterised by its period properties, which range from one bedroom terraces to four bedroom family houses. So whether you’re won over by the skinny house or looking for something more conventional, pay Dexters’ Hammersmith office a visit.
Measuring just seven feet across at its widest point, this Hammersmith home is slimmer than a Northern Line Tube carriage and only slightly wider than a London black cab. Yet almost 1,000sq ft of living space has been carved out of the unusually slim house, making it almost en par with an average-sized family home in Britain. The current owner, Carsten Freisberg, has lived in the property for more than 13 years and extensively refurbished the building, including removing some of the walls and doors to open out the space. He says that buying such an unusual home enabled him to get on the housing ladder, "as the same square footage in a flat or a more conventional house were going for a lot more money at the time."
