A run-down house that’s just 7ft 3ins wide is up for sale for £150,000.

That’s quite a bit of money for a property that’s so skinny it can barely be seen from the road – especially as it’s in need of a bit of a refresh.

The one-bedroom house has been called a ‘bijou bolt hole’ by estate agents, but the listing admits the home needs ‘some upgrading’.

Its price tag is somewhat justified by the home’s location, though, as it’s in the Mumbles area on the outskirts of Swansea, south Wales.

Homes in this coastal tourist spot tend to go for over £300,000.

So if you don’t mind a bit of a squeeze in terms of space, this could be a great chance to make the most of the beach location.

The Rightmove listing reads: ‘An extremely rare and special opportunity to purchase probably the smallest house in Mumbles.

‘This truly unique property offers the incoming purchaser a chance to buy into a part of Mumbles’ history.

‘The ground floor has been extended to include a lounge for additional living space as well as a kitchen/dining room in the original part of the building.

‘From here there is a staircase up to the bedroom on the first floor which leads through to the bathroom.’

‘To the front of the home there is a garden area and a driveway providing invaluable off-road parking and to the rear there is a small outdoor space with rear access.’

As we mentioned, the property could do with an upgrade – the kitchen has some grubby marks on the walls, and the interiors are drab, overall.

The one-bed pad - dubbed a bijou bolt hole by estate agents - is set back from the road at the end of a long front garden. It is made up of just four rooms - a lounge, kitchen/diner, bedroom and bathroom. The listing states it needs ???some upgrading??? with a dated kitchen and its in need of a lick of paint. But the terraced property has a lot of potential as its located in the plush Mumbles area on the outskirts of Swansea, south Wales, The coastal tourist hotspot with a stunning beach means the average house prices are over ??300,000.

The bathroom is large enough to hold a bathtub, though, so that’s an upgrade.

And we reckon Londoners will still see the limited space as an upgrade from a studio flat that would cost at least twice the money.

The listing adds: ‘Situated in a prime location in the heart of Mumbles, it is just a moment’s walk to the bars, restaurants, cafés and shops that the village has to offer.

‘And a stones throw from the nearby sea front promenade, with numerous other beaches including Langland and Caswell and the Gower Peninsular also easily accessible.’

Sounds dreamy. You might need to adjust some of your furniture, though – just so it fits and you still have space to walk about.
