A terraced home not much wider than a London bus is surprising potential buyers with what greets them when they step through the door - but it doesn't come cheap.

The two-storey house in East Dulwich, London, was originally a workshop on the ground floor, with a small apartment built above.

Two years ago the workshop was converted and the two floors were merged into one stylish and quirky home.

It offers two double bedrooms, an open plan kitchen and living room, and a patio garden space at the rear.

The downstairs is open plan

The kitchen is fitted out with marble surfaces and white walls, with metro tiling in the modern bathroom and a decking area outside which offers plenty of privacy.

It's listed for £700,000 with Knight Frank on Rightmove, which describes the home as a 'small gem' with a spacious interior which belies the outside.

Christopher Burton, head of Knight Frank’s Dulwich office, said: "This great little house offers a south-facing garden, carefully considered layout and modern design features. It’s ideal for those who have decided to move out of [Central] London following lockdown."

The listing states: "With a stylish entrance, this quirky house opens up into a beautiful open plan kitchen entertaining area and leads through beautiful Crittall doors to the secluded south facing rear garden.

"Upstairs are two spacious bedrooms that benefit from a contemporary style recently updated shower room.

"This property is superbly located for the vibrant cafes, bars and restaurants on Lordship Lane and direct transport links into central London."

It states it's also close to a number of popular primary and secondary schools for growing families.

Weird and wonderful home listings

Rightmove says: "When you take a closer look inside, you’ll see that it actually appears to be rather spacious. Hats off to whoever designed the place, as they've done a cracking job.

"Everything’s been refurbished rather tastefully. We love the marble surfaces in the kitchen, the metro tiles in the bathroom, and we simply cannot think of a layout that would have worked better."
