Britain's Smallest House On Sale For Just £70,000

Surprisingly, perhaps, this is not some space-saving property found tucked away in London as you so often see.

In fact, it's the only remaining part of a much larger property in Stockport, Manchester. At just 176sq-ft, the old stable-turned-home is on the market and listed as a 'sanctuary'.

The, now, studio cottage was part of Edgeley House, the family home of the influential Syke's family dating back to 1975, but it's the only surviving part of a once much larger home.

The home, in the Edgeley region of Stockport, is on the market for just £70,000. Joules Estate Agents have been tasked with selling the home and have said: "At 176sq-ft it is the smallest home we have ever sold but it has got the biggest heart and it is definitely a case of the sum of the parts being greater than the whole."

They added the one-bedroom house "takes minutes to view and even less time to appreciate, with a studio lounge with an open plan bed deck above and separate kitchen and shower room and that is it."

Wonderful sales patter wouldn't you agree? The home also comes with an additional toolshed and small courtyard.

The lounge has built in shelving and fitted spotlights and the kitchen does have all the facilities any bachelor could ever need.

The only catch for potential buyers is that is a cash only sale, so if you don't have a spare £70,000 lying around then the dream is very short lived.

However, if you rummage deep into your pockets and find two quid, you may be able to buy a raffle ticket to win a mansion.

The owner, despite dropping the price on the market from £845,000 to £650,000, still can't shift it, so has decided a raffle is the best way forward.

Can't find £2, well there's a millionaire who, along with Channel 4's help, is giving away a £120k apartment for free.

Marco Robinson, once homeless himself, now owns over 150 properties worldwide and now wants to find a family or individual to give the three-bed property to. The idea, for him, is to help someone turn their life around.

And, if you're not successful in winning any of the above, then just to keep you down in the dumps, there's an eight-year-old lad who has bought his own house.

Tyler Ford, now nine, has used his own money (through being a fantastic kick boxer) to buy a property in South Wales. Alright for some, eh?
