It’s not often you get the chance to buy a house in an exclusive part of Chelsea for just £600,000. But there is a snag.
It just so happens to be one of the smallest houses in London .
The tiny one-bedroom cottage is in Britten Street, just a short walk from South Kensington and Sloane Square Tube stations, and is up for sale for the first time in almost 50 years.
Estate agents Douglas and Gordon call it a “proper Chelsea gem”.
It goes on to describe the freehold property on its website as “an utterly charming one bedroom cottage quietly situated on one of Chelsea’s prettiest streets, overlooking St Luke’s Gardens”.
But any buyers will have some work on their hands, as the cottage is in need of complete internal renovation.
However, Douglas and Gordon say this “offers an incoming buyer a terrific opportunity to re-fit it to their own taste and style whether it be as a lovely house or as a private office”.
The property is available to view here .
