It was billed as one of London’s smallest homes - but that has not stopped the miniature house in Chelsea selling big at more than £100,000 the asking price.
The tiny cottage in Bretten Street sold for £713,823 earlier in March, despite going on the market for "only" £600,000 in February.
Estate agents Douglas & Gordon say the home, which had been put on the market for the first time in 50 years, was subject to a last-minute bidding war which shattered the listing price, even though the building is in need of complete renovation.
Despite its limited living space (just 250 sq ft), the property manages to cram in a single bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and reception room, and overlooks the St Luke’s Park.
Douglas & Gordon say more than 100 people viewed the house, which was eventually purchased by investor Robin Swailes, who called it a "small but beautiful" property.
Sales manager Ed McCulloch described the house as "totally unique, a one-off" and said it was the smallest freehold property he had ever seen in Chelsea .
He also said Mr Swailes had made a wise financial move: “When fully refurbished, the value of this proper Chelsea gem will almost certainly increase in price, making it a great investment.
“Properties this unique are extremely rare, and the person who owns it can be safe in the knowledge that no-one else lives in a house quite like them.”
