At just 26 sq m, this tiny Chelsea home is compact to say the least. But what it lacks in space, it makes up for with a great London location, access to a beautiful garden, and wonderful shops, bars and restaurants nearby.
Photos show a tired-looking house in need of refurbishment, but in many ways, it holds a certain charm. And as all us home lovers know, a property in need of a complete overhaul provides the perfect opportunity to make it your own.
The Britten Street property has one reception room, a kitchen, bathroom and a bedroom. It is spread over two floors and the bedroom is upstairs. The tiny kitchen and bathroom are next to each other, but some clever space-saving fittings could work magic.
Estate agents Douglas & Gordon describe the cottage as a ‘proper Chelsea gem’. The fact that it is a freehold, detached property holds a lot of appeal. In this exclusive area of London, a home without immediate neighbours and without the restrictions of a lease is a real rarity, and it definitely doesn’t come cheap.
Space is at a premium in the capital and, according to Rightmove, the average home in Chelsea costs a whopping £1,912,360. So while £600,000 is obviously a lot to pay for a 26 sq m home, it does perhaps offer a single person or a couple the opportunity to live in a desirable part of London at a much lower cost than the norm.
And as for the size of this tiny Chelsea home - well, they do say that the best things come in small packages.
