Tiny House, Big City
Tiny Houses, as popularized in the news, are typically trailer-mounted and set up either in someone’s backyard as an ADU or are plopped out in the middle of the country. For obvious reasons, throwing them in the middle of an already-dense cityscape is an unlikely scenario. This tiny house in London is funky little exception. While not trailer mounted, its 188 sq ft dimensions and lofted layout are reminiscent of many tiny houses we’ve seen on this site.
The house has a pretty clever configuration with a stairway that descends onto the kitchen counter, a seating area perfect for lilliputians and the loose-jointed, under which are storage areas. There’s a loft bed up top with some built-in storage. There’s a wet bathroom that would look about right in an RV. The windows and light-colored walls make the space feel pretty inviting.
The space is located in London’s desirable Islington neighborhood, which explains the house’s £275K price tag (US$448K). This price translates to $2300 sq ft, which is about $1K more per sq ft than the neighborhood’s average. But in terms of total costs, you’re unlikely to find anything cheaper in the area.
What do you think? Great little deal in awesome neighborhood or big ripoff for tiny digs?
