Britain’s smallest detached house measuring just 12ft wide for sale for £140,000

Britain’s smallest detached house – measuring just 12ft wide and 26ft high – has gone on the market for £140,000.

The unique two-bedroom property is up for sale in the Eastwood area of Nottingham.

Built in the early 1900s, the narrow home has been fully renovated by the current owner of two years.

It is available for £243,000 less than the average UK detached home – and £44,000 less than the average terraced house.

It is spread over two floors, near schools, parks, and is just ten miles from the city centre.

The property in Queens Square boasts an entrance hall, two reception rooms, kitchen and two double bedrooms.

Despite its compact size, the house still has loft space and side access to a back garden and patio area.

Estate agents Burchell Edwards say the tiny home, more than £100,000 cheaper than the UK average, suits first-time buyers and families.

Branch manager Jasmin Moll said there had been lots of interest and several viewings since it went on the market on April 16.

She said: “It’s traditional 1900s building with a Victorian feel.

“The whole width of the building is the width of the dining room which is 12ft.

“I have sold a lot of similar-sized houses but never one that was detached like this.

“It’s a lovely, unique property ideal for young couples or families and first-time buyers because it’s been fully modernised.

“The owners are selling to upsize because they need something bigger.

“It’s great value.

“A detached property in the area would be a lot more, between £180,000 and £240,000 depending on whether it was a three or four bedroom house and had a garage and driveway.

“You can’t compare them to this because it’s a traditional property on a terraced street.

“It’s like a terraced house, only there’s nothing attached to it.

“It’s very, very nice and it’s actually spacious inside because of the high ceilings plus there’s the back garden.

“It’s beautiful.”

The listing on Rightmove currently states: “Situated in a central location in the heart of Eastwood, this fully modernised home is perfect for first time buyers and families alike, In brief comprises of an entrance hall, two reception rooms, kitchen, two double bedrooms and a four piece family bathroom suite.

“To the outside of the property is a well presented rear garden which is mainly laid to lawn with astroturf having a patio area and brick wall surround with gated access leading to the front of the property.”
