A house thought to be Britain's narrowest home has gone on the market for more than £200,000.

The two-bedroom property also has a reception room, kitchen and bathroom, as well as a roof terrace to provide outside space, but is thought to be just 83 inches or a little over two metres wide.

The terrace house, in Harringay, north London, is believed to have been built on a driveway between two other homes.

It is to be sold at auction on October 1 by agents McHugh & Co with a guide price of £235,000+.

Company spokesman James McHugh said: "It's a very unique house, to say the least, in a great location. The property would certainly appeal to an owner-occupier or rental investor."

The property is not the first narrow home to hit the headlines.

In May, planning inspectors ruled that a 6ft (1.8m) wide house in Leyton, east London - then dubbed the capital's narrowest - should be returned to its original use as a garage.

The two-storey flat-roofed building, sandwiched between brick terrace houses, was branded "singularly out of place" and "wholly unsatisfactory" by planning inspector Ian Currie, who dismissed an appeal by Akhlaq Mohammed against an enforcement notice issued by Waltham Forest Council requiring the property to be restored to its original use as a domestic garage/workshop within three months.
