So, at first glance from outside there isn't a lot to it. Rose Cottage is only 13 feet wide, but it's pretty nice inside, having been recently renovated after it was bought at auction.

Now, it's ready to hit the housing market, and it offers a decent opportunity for a first time buyer who - presumably - doesn't own a lot of stuff.

There's a modern kitchen and bathroom, and everything looks very clean and neutral.

It's even got a small yard out the back, although you wouldn't get much of a game of football or cricket going out there.

You could definitely fit a barbecue though, and that's about all you need.

It's in a good area too, just outside the city centre and near to all sorts of amenities.

The home is definitely a unique opportunity for someone, but you'll need to put up the deposit for that £275,000 price tag if you want it.

Richard Chesterton, from estate agent Newton Fallowell Oadby, told The Sun: "Rose Cottage was acquired by our client some 12 months ago through auction.

"At the time there were significant refurbishment works requiring attention to bring the property up to a suitable standard.

"Newton Fallowell Oadby has been advising the client over the past 12 months to present a modern yet quirky and niche property.

"Having been built circa 1900, Rose Cottage required a thoughtful touch to maintain the character features while providing a contemporary feel throughout.

"We believe the property to be one of the narrowest detached houses in Britain, offering a rare opportunity for buyers to acquire a wonderful home within the highly desirable location of South Knighton in Leicester."

He continued: "Providing a perfect first-time buy or investment opportunity close to well-regarded schools and boutique shops, the property is a real talking point.

"We anticipate a strong level of interest due to the unique nature and popular location and would advise any potential purchasers to view what is a superbly presented detached home."

There you have it - if you're on the market for a first place, and you've got a decent deposit saved up, you could certainly do worse right now than to have a closer look.
