Tiny house the size of a door on sale for £109,000 – but inside it’s a different story

A HOUSE that is the width of a door is up for sale for £109,00 - but the inside is not as it seems.

Despite its narrow entrance, the aptly named “Backabit Cottage” is a quite spacious two-storey, one-bedroom, one-bathroom home.

The house, up for sale in Somerset, is wedged between two substantially larger houses - giving it a long path which 247 Property Auctions call “narrow but useful frontage”.

The listing reads: “An opportunity to acquire this two-storey, one-bedroom attached house being located in a popular residential and lettings area.

“The house, which is convenient for the town's range of amenities and facilities, is likely to appeal to the lettings investors and developer fraternities.”

On the ground floor, viewers will find a bright reception porch, a living room and a kitchen.

Meanwhile upstairs there is a spacious bedroom and a bathroom with a bath/shower combo.

The home is a stone's throw away from the River Brue on Clyce Road.

It also boasts a wood-burning stove, psychedelic style windows and beautiful ceiling beams.

The residence is up for auction and bids are welcome until Thursday April 14 at 5pm.

Auctioneer Scott Gray, well known for his regular appearances on BBC’s Homes Under the Hammer, says “This cottage offers real charm due to its unusual situation being tucked away behind the main terrace of properties.

"The deceptively spacious accommodation gives the cottage a real ‘Tardis-like’ feeling!"

The property is up for auction with 247 Property Auctions, owned and can also be viewed on Rightmove here.
