Bristol locals have branded two narrow homes built in an alley, wedged in between a house and a kebab shop as ‘ridiculous’ and ‘vile’.

The slim detached properties, in Kingswood, Bristol, each have three-bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, reception rooms and a narrow staircase.

Jake Grady, managing director of estate agent Nexa Bristol, said he views the houses as ‘high-quality, detached homes’ with generous bedrooms.

He also praised their location, pointing out they are near the high street and ‘fairly close’ to a key ring road.

However, Mr Grady said he understood why some people were scratching their heads over the houses’ location, next to Golden Kebab.

Bristol City Council was contacted for comment.
