Terraced house squeezed into narrow gap looks tiny until you step through front door

NewsTerraced house squeezed into narrow gap looks tiny until you step through front door

A terraced house in southeast London has been compared to Doctor Who’s TARDIS by viewers after its narrow exterior was found to hide a wide interior. The four-bedroom property was ingeniously redesigned, resulting in an interior that belied its deceiving exterior.

The house, slotted between two other properties in the capital, opens out dramatically at the back, providing comfortable open-plan living spaces and a substantial garden.

Huge glass panels allow natural light to flood in and there’s also a roof terrace on one of the three stories giving a view of the garden.

When it was put on sale, the illusory property was listed at £,1250,00 and was sold, subject to conditions.

In their description of the property, Rightmove said: “In the same way that the TARDIS is much bigger on the inside despite its exterior being of limited size, the same is true of this impressive property.”

They added: “Remarkably, the Coach House extends to 1,621 sq ft across three floors, with a modern open plan living space at the back of the property blending into a private, urban oasis of a garden.

“The Coach House has been rigorously redesigned as a ‘smart house’, with underfloor heating, an eight-speaker Sonos system in the living room and kitchen as well as video camera doorbell at the front door.”

Photos of the interior show a modern kitchen joining a spacious living room as well as exposed brickwork offset by concrete pillars.

The elegant design continues upstairs, with a simple bedroom featuring a floor-to-ceiling window and a mirror.

Rightmove property expert Miles Shipside said: “It’s wonderful to see such diverse property for sale on Rightmove and this beautifully contemporary home is definitely one of a kind.

“I love how the narrow façade disguises a quite magnificent home behind it, giving the impression that this property is almost like the TARDIS from Doctor Who.”
