The house – slivered in between two usual sized homes – has a kitchen, a dining area, a reception area, a bathroom and three bedrooms.

That's a lot to fit in, bearing in mind the property is shorter than half a tennis court.

While it will not be everyone's cup of tea, the property has doubled in value in a decade.
