One-Bedroom Property Measuring 10ft By 8ft Goes On Sale For £250,000
A one-bedroom property in York, measuring just 10ft 5ins by 8ft 6ins, has gone up for sale for £250,000 ($322,250).
The Grade II Georgian country house is one of a pair of symmetrical lodges flanking the gates at Grimston Park.
At this point, you might be thinking, 'OK, it's quite fancy, quirky and even funny, but how exactly am I supposed to live in that little box?' Well, the couple who are selling have been there for 14 years - thanks to a second underground level.
In the aforementioned limestone box is a double bed, but on the lower ground floor there is a 'cosy' living area, kitchen and a sunken patio.
The glass roof and wall in the kitchen by the patio also make it surprisingly bright and airy. Plus, it has a garden that is far more generous, size-wise, as well as impressive views of the park and the River Wharfe.
Rachel Macpherson, head of residential sales at Carter Jonas estate agents of York, said: "The house belongs to a married couple who run a machinery sales company and they have lived there for 14 years, since it first went up for sale.
"They've absolutely loved their time there but decided they wanted more space and so they have decided to rent another property on the same estate."

Yeah, I suppose it's got buckets of 'novelty', 'charm', 'character' and so on - actual space, not so much.
Rachel added: "You are not allowed to rent it out for holiday lets but I think it would make the best second or holiday home for people who want to get away from the city at the weekend.
"You've got these beautiful grounds you can roam around in - it's like being at Downton Abbey, with woodlands and a river."
A description of Sunset Lodge reads: "A romantic cleverly converted one bedroom lodge house flanking the gates leading Grimston Park.
"Sunset Lodge is one of a pair of symmetrical lodges standing either side of the decorative wrought iron gates guarding the original driveway leading to Grimston Park, a handsome GII* Listed Georgian Country House.
"Built from attractive Limestone Ashlar blocks and featuring a number of distinctive architectural details, including a stepped roof topped by a kneeling figure of a warrior, the property is arranged over 2 floors and offers accommodation more than first meets the eye.
"The ground floor houses a mezzanine bedroom and dressing area beneath but the majority of the accommodation is on the lower ground floor where a surprisingly bright but cosy living area leads directly onto the stylish kitchen with orangery style roof and doors opening onto a sunken patio.
"On the opposite side of the living room is a very luxurious bathroom built into the original barrel ceilinged cellar."
