At just 6 feet wide, the skinny living quarters might be compared to a "luxury yacht," according to the real estate agency. The asking price is $1.3 million.

SACHA PFEIFFER, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Sacha Pfeiffer, here with an offer that someone will find irresistible. For just $1.3 million American, you can be the owner of what's billed as possibly the thinnest house in London. It's 6 feet wide - that's 1.8 meters - and according to the real estate agency, the skinny living quarters might be compared to a luxury yacht. They also say it's great for entertaining, although it does seem like social distancing might be a bit of a problem. It's MORNING EDITION.
