A mansion in Knightsbridge is set to sell for more than £800,000 at auction despite being just a few feet deep. The single storey property is located at the start of a cobbled mews in one of the most expensive parts of the capital.

The property is thought to have around 280 sq/ft of internal space, which means its dimensions are closer to a train carriage than a residential home.

The front of the property measures at 65-feet, but is just 2.5-feet deep at one end.

The Royal Albert Hall, Harrods and Hyde Park are just a few minutes away.

For the best part of 60 years, the corridor-shaped pad was lived in by Linda Wildoner, an Austrian lady who moved to the capital after World War Two.

She became a popular member of the local community and created a beautiful garden out on the mews cobbles.

Miss Wildoner passed away at the age of 94 in 2010 and the house is now being sold by Savills Auctions on behalf of the executors.
