Two-Bed House Goes On Sale For £210K But Owner Will Have Trouble Getting In

While many of us will have to compromise on something when it comes to buying a house - whether it's a slightly smaller garden or some dodgy wallpaper that you'll have to spend hours stripping - there are arguably a few things that are absolutely essential...

This 'quirky' two-bedroom house in Bedfordshire appears to have it all, with a quaint courtyard garden, a wood-burning stove and even a nearby Waitrose.

However, it doesn't take long to notice that the property - which is being sold for offers in excess of £205,000 - doesn't have the one thing that its immediate neighbours do, and that's a door.

From the outside, the front of the house has a large window where others along the street have the front door, meaning previous owners have had to install a letterbox into the living room wall so that post can still be delivered.

Thankfully, you're not expected to clamber into the window like a thief in the night, as there's an entrance round of the back of the house so that you can enter via the garden.

The period home is located in Leighton Buzzard, and promises to be 'just a stone's throw away' from the train station, making it ideal for those making the 40-minute commute to London.

A blog post on Rightmove, where the house is currently listed, says: "The quaint period property faces Old Road, except a big window proudly sits where you'd expect to find the front door.

"To get inside this charmingly unique property, on the market for £210,000, you'll need to head round the back past the private walled courtyard garden.

"It's a secluded and peaceful outside space, which is the ideal spot to enjoy a good book, and the back door takes you straight into the kitchen at the rear of the house."

Explaining more about how post is delivered, the blog post adds: "If you look closely, there is a post box beneath one of the street-level windows, which drops post into a little wooden hatch in the living room."

The house is listed on the website with EweMove, with agents joking in the property description: "'Where's the front door?'... I hear you say... Well it's around the back past the private walled courtyard garden."
