11 feet wide, £490,000 steep

Last week, a 7-feet-wide house in Haringay made headlines when it was put on the market for a mere £235,000. Now, a house in Brockley that's less than twice as wide is on the market for twice as much - and it doesn't even exist yet. If you want this baby, you have to buy off-plan.

This two-bed, 11-feet-wide, house on Revelon Road is currently under construction, with a due-date of January 2015 and a price tag of £490,000. It's actually pretty cute and, like Manor Avenue's Invisible House, it's a smart use of space.

It's romantic to live in a slightly ramshackle world where not every square inch has been optimised, but it's better to find smart ways of providing new homes for Londoners.

Definitely a "like" from me, I like effective use of urban space and genuine brownfield sites (rather than building over parks and gardens) as opposed to building London ever outwards into green belt....

Congratulations to the developer. At last an improvement on what was there before.

Shame they ditched the original bolder design.

Nice house - it's pretty good value for the area and space inside actually, and it's a nice street. No parking but lots of people in the area don't have cars now.

It's made the evening standard!
