: : What does "'a tot' of a house" mean? The sentence was apparently in referenced to a London dwelling.
: One of my British slang references says "tot" means small regarding a drink. I don't know if that carries over to houses.
'tot' is a noun that means 'a small one' - it is usually used to indicate a small amount of alcoholic spirit or a child.
