ONE of the smallest houses in the UK is a tiny cube estate on the market for a whopping £255,000.
The Grade II-listed home on Grimston Park Estate in North Yorkshire measures just 408m2 – but is “deep in Royal history” dating back to the 1800s.
The Georgian estate where the gate – one of two similar structures – lies hidden has been frequented by the British monarchy for countless generations.
James VI of Scotland visited the estate during his journey to become king.
Above ground – in a space of 10ft 5ins x 8ft 6ins – is the property’s bedroom, with the bed cleverly raised above the floor to provide ample storage space below.
Visitors then descend an ornate spiral staircase to the subterranean living area, which is 13ft long.
There, all have kitchenettes, small living rooms, and pint-sized bathrooms, along with bright sunroofs that let in plenty of natural light.
Huge glass doors lead out to a manicured garden.
The property’s £255,000 price tag is considered reasonable for the area, where the average home costs £338,000.
A spokesman for estate agents Hunters said: ‘Historically rich and built with an Asher limestone exterior the exterior of this Grade II listed Georgian gated home opens to the view. Grimston Park Estate in a stunning rural location.
“This unique detached house has been improved by the current owners and arranged over two floors, ground floor and underground accommodation.
“The current owners have lived on this property for many years and love the convenient location and community the property has to offer.”
