A tiny detached house which measures just 12ft wide and 26ft high has gone on sale for £140,000.

The rather unique two-bedroom property, which is thought to be the smallest detached house in Britain, is on sale in Nottingham.

The cosy property, which was built in the early 1900s in the Eastwood area of the city, has been fully renovated by the current owner who has lived in the property for two years.

And although you're getting a lot less space that the average UK house, you'll also be getting it a lot cheaper than one as the narrow house is available for £243,000 less than the average UK detached home (£383,000).

It is also £44,000 cheaper than the average terraced property.

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

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

It also has a free-standing roll top bath situated in the four-piece family bathroom suite, together with a double shower cubicle.

Despite its somewhat 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, which is more than £100,000 cheaper than the UK average, suits first-time buyers and families.

Branch manager Jasmin Moll said there has 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."

Continuing to chat about the home, she added: "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."

Ms Moll also said the home is "actually spacious inside" as it has high ceilings. She also said it boasts a back garden.

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.

"[It] 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."

Another property hitting headlines this week is an abandoned home left untouched from the 1960s.

The retro three-bed semi, which hasn’t been lived in for more than 50 years, is on sale in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset.

It is being sold via auction next month, with a guide price of just £75,000.
