Tiny 'Gem' Of A House On Sale For £100,000
A tiny house is on the market for just £100,000 ($128,339), but it has an interesting past.
The miniature property in Southport, Merseyside, is billed as an 'absolute gem', and used to be a funeral parlour.
It has since - you'll be pleased to know - been converted into a 'unique' one bedroom home, although it has retained some of its more Gothic features, such as the metal railings and large windows.
The advert on Rightmove says: "This unique property is a rare find and a fantastic opportunity for purchasers seeking something truly special. Situated in a highly sought after location of Churchtown.
"This absolute gem of a property is located in a particularly pleasant spot, with playing fields both directly opposite and to one side.
"The thriving village of Churchtown is a short walk away, along with nearby bus stops providing direct access to the village and Southport town centre which boasts a host of local shops and amenities and a diverse range of cafes, bars & eateries."
It goes on: "The accommodation includes a comfortable lounge/living space with feature fireplace and a richness of natural light. There is a practical and charming kitchen area with wall and base units, along with ample worktops and space for appliances.
"Concluding the ground floor, there is an extremely modern three-piece shower suite comprising of low level WC, pedestal wash hand basin and walk in shower cubicle with wall mounted electric shower. A quirky paddle staircase then reveals the loft style sleeping gallery which again offers plenty of light."

The property is being sold through Flexi-Agent and viewings are available strictly on an appointment basis only.
Now, while this petite maison might prove to be a bit of a bargain, down in London, one house - thought to be the thinnest in the capital - could be just out of range for most people.
The five-floor property in Shepherd's Bush measures just 5ft 5in wide in some parts, but offers two bedrooms, kitchen, dining room and bathroom, as well as a roof terrace and a garden to the rear.
And it will set you back £995,000 ($1.3 million). Yikes.
The cute house is pretty swish inside, with an Aga in the kitchen, parquet floor, an original art deco bathtub and patterned wallpaper.
Simon Waller, who works at Winkworth which is selling the property, told The Telegraph: "It was terribly bohemian.
"You could get lost in the different worlds over the five floors.
"Each owner has sprinkled their own fairy dust on it.
"The current owner likens it to a classic car - she's tinkering with it constantly."
