Skinny house just 6 metres wide goes on sale for more than £8million

A skinny hideaway complete with its own swimming pool and stunning seaside views has gone on the market on the Australian coast.

The house spans just six metres in width and is nestled between considerably larger properties in Darling Point, Sydney.

Despite its modest width, the property will cost investors A$15.5million – or £8.33million – to secure due to the desirability of the area in which it sits.

The house's current owner is multi-millionaire Fiona Brown, who is expected to make a massive profit on the property once it is sold.

The multi-million pound price tag might be eye-watering to most people, but real estate agent Benjamin Goodwin told MailOnline that it's actually incredibly cheap.

He said that just over £8million is a far lower price than other, chunkier, homes can be expected to rake in at Darling Point. Benjamin said the supposedly modest price is made possible by the four-storey house's width.

“There is nothing more surreal than hearing the waves lapping against your own backyard," he said. “The first time I stepped inside my shoulders dropped, I just felt like I was on holiday.”

Ray White Eastern Suburbs is advertising the property which boasts an outdoor swimming pool, four bedrooms, three bathrooms and two parking spaces.

The home was built back in 1980 and the last time it changed hands was seven years ago in 2014. Views from the platform above the swimming pool break out onto a stunning seascape from the Sydney coast.

Should it not find a buyer before the February 12 cut-off point, interested parties will have the option of bidding on the home at auction.

But Benjamin reckons he'll easily secure a buyer for the "very sexy" property before that date.

He's spent the best part of three weeks helping workmen to touch up the house, with the garden and various rooms benefiting from a makeover.
