A tiny one-bedroom 'cottage' in central London has been put on the market for the first time in 50 years, and despite being small in size, it comes with a big asking price.

The Britten Street property has gone on sale for £600,000, a sum which is three times the average house price in the UK or as the BBC points out, could buy you six houses in Yorkshire.

It has one bedroom and one bathroom, and offers just 290 sq ft of floor space. It is also in need of 'complete re-modernisation' but estate agent Douglas & Gordon has described the home as a 'proper Chelsea gem'.

'This is an utterly charming one bedroom cottage quietly situated on one of Chelsea's prettiest streets, overlooking St Luke's Gardens,' the property listing states. The cottage is also a short walk away from South Kensington and Sloane Square tube stations, as well as the shops and bars on the Kings Road.

The value-for-money aspect hasn't put potential buyers off, though. A number of people are said to be interested in this unique 'pied-a-terre' and according to Douglas & Gordon sales manager Ed McCulloch, it is a worthwhile investment.

'We have had a large number of people expressing interest in it and it has only been on the market for a week. People are looking for something that captures their imagination,' he told ITV News.

'Once it is done up, someone might pay as much as £1 million for it, we don't know - it is unique.' After all, size isn't everything.
