First-time buyer? Look away now. In the current UK property landscape, £300,000 will just be enough to get you a seven-foot-wide house – with only one bedroom. 

Located in The Old Brewery in Stokes Croft, Bristol, this home sits in a gap that you literally couldn’t fit many cars through. And, despite only taking up a measly 567 square feet of space, the pad is only just below the average price for the city – £397,430 last year. 

As the owner of this property, you’ll have a kitchen and lounge space on the first floor with enough room to squeeze in a TV in front of the sofa and a few houseplants. On the next floor up, you’ll find your bedroom, which has a vaulted ceiling, a newly fitted bathroom and a feature wall of exposed brickwork.

The bottom floor, however, holds the least promise. It’s home to a small cellar, but not much else – and it’s even described as having ‘limited head height’. Yikes. 

The house does have some good features, though: it’s split over three floors and has a balcony with views over BristolAnd the best part? It has its own private balcony with space (at last) for alfresco dining.

Listed by estate agents Maggs & Allen with a guide price of £300,000, the property is described as ‘a truly unique one-bedroom town house’. The listing reads: ‘The house has been tastefully refurbished to a high standard to provide a highly individual home, conveniently located for access to the city centre and a wide range of bars, cafes and restaurants in Stokes Croft.’
