Converted from a garage, the Somerset property has all the features of a modern accommodation but warns of a restricted head height!


A tiny, 13-ft house in the UK has hit the market for a not-so-tiny price tag of $115,000.

Converted from a garage, the Somerset property could be the smallest in Britain, The Daily Mail reports.

The detached house is spread over two floors and has most conveniences of a modern residence including a combined lounge and dining, a bathroom and a hall on the ground floor and a double bedder on the top floor.

Other features include double glazing, electric heating and a view of the canal.

The listing describes the property as, “A most unusual and quirky detached property, within reach of Bridgwater’s town centre offering, we believe, an ideal investment or first-time buy.”

While the price tag may appear exorbitant for the size, agents say it’s a bargain.

The average price of a flat in the neighbourhood is $150,000 (£96,730) or $430,000 (£279,612) for a detached house.

Listing agent Mark Franklin of Tamlyns tells the Daily Mail that although the house is very unusual and unlike anything he’s “ever dealt with in the past”, it has attracted interest from buyers.

However, the agents do warn of a “restricted head height” in the bedroom.
