This one-of-a-kind property actually dates back to the late 19th century. It was originally a Victorian hat shop with living quarters on the top floors. While the unusual house has changed over the years, the property still has a very old-fashioned glass facade. These period features combined with the art deco interior has made it quite popular with buyers in the past.

The building has several talking points including a spiral staircase, a roof terrace, and a master bedroom that can only be accessed through a hatch in the floor! What it lacks in size it definitely makes up for in character. David Meyers, a representative of Winkworth estate agents who is selling the property, said the house is well worth the price largely because of its uniqueness.

He said “In a lot of parts of London people will use the pound per square footage mark and use it as a benchmark for what properties are going to be worth. It doesn’t always work like that. When you’ve got something as individual as this, the price has to be reflected on that. It’s chic, it’s beautiful and that’s why the house will sell.”
