UK’s ‘tiniest home’ is less than a metre wide and could be yours for £125,000

This tiny home that is less than a meter wide has been put up for sale for £125,000.

The unique triangular-shaped apartment in Westgate-on-Sea in Kent has been listed on Zoopla and is described as having a “simple layout,” with a hallway and shower room on the ground floor.

There is another room on the first floor, which is more than 22ft long, according to the website.

But the "entrance lobby" gets as narrow as 3.1ft – just under 1m.

Estate agent Miles & Barr, which is selling the quirky property, said it could be transformed into office space or a studio flat, subject to planning permission.

Zoopla is advertising the apartment as a "one bed property", the Mirror reports.

In terms of location, the building is "only a few steps" from the shops, cafes and restaurants in central Westgate-on-Sea.

The owner will also be only meters from the train station and the beach and seafront.

The listing reads: “Westgate is regarded by some as a well-kept secret amongst the towns and villages along the north coast of Kent.

“This picturesque village with its canopied shops is a perfect base for city commuting, retail therapy in Canterbury and Westwood Cross or just enjoying the blue flag beaches or our local sea front pub.”

“It’s also the perfect pad for a buyer looking for a home with quirky features, with the property less than a meter wide at its narrowest point.”
