Might I respectfully challenge the claim to the world’s narrowest frontage? I believe that the house known as The Wedge, built in 1875, in Millport on the island of Great Cumbrae holds that distinction?


As The Wedge widens as it goes back which is the narrowest house (overall) is unclear. But as the article says narrowest facade The Wedge clearly is the narrower. At just under 1.2 metres is a little more than half the width of Single 7’s ‘just over’ 2 metres.

What is this place called in Dutch? Might be worth adding and changing this to the 2nd narrowest.
I am not a native amsterdammer, so during my visit I had to rely on info that I could find online.
