London's famous ultra-narrow Clerkenwell House for sale for 1.5million!

This famous house has been seen in many architecture books, and by myself!

It is a bit pricey, considering you could buy a 28th floor three bedroom apartment in the nearby Barbican for less than half the price..........and a slightly better view!

Barbican flat 635,000

Was that a sarcastic dig at the price or has you genuinely posted the wrong video clip?



EDIT: Just everyone understands that comments, CHEVIOT originally posted a link to a video clip about the Live8 concerts.


How ironic!

This is the first time I've ever heard of this building and I'd love to buy it: its over half way to owning my own skyscraper (this house I have just read has 7 floors)

I used to live literally opposite that flat. I watched the channel four buses bus people into to marvel at its architecture.
