The home, located in Haringey, will be up for auction on 1st October, with agents optimistic about earning more than asking price – despite the fact that, as the Guardian notes, it is barely as wide as three wheelie bins.

“I think it will appeal to owner-occupiers or perhaps an investor,” comments James McHugh of estate agent McHugh & Co, who is handling the sale.

Indeed, buy-to-let landlords have made a splash in the media recently after a string of cupboard flats were let out, despite not being large enough to meet safety requirements.

The home is far from the narrowest home on the market either now or in the past, but tenants or home buyers would probably still brave the driveway-shaped abode, if only to find a roof over their heads in a time of rising property price. Indeed, according to Zoopla , prices on Glenwood Road – where the home is located – cost an average of £417,446, 13.4 per cent higher than one year ago.

£235,000 for a seven-foot wide home? Maybe tightening your belt is not such a bad move after all.
