Brockley's 11-feet-wide house sells for half a million quid

Game over. This house, nicely designed to make efficient use of available space but nonetheless tiny (84 square metres) and wedged in an existing terrace, on a main road, next to a supermarket - has sold for a mere £490,000.

In the context of the current London market, the price is profoundly unsurprising. But it is the final proof, if further proof were needed, that Brockley is officially no longer a relatively affordable part of London.
