Miniature living: The tiny house in Barnsbury on the market for 275,000
 

This ridiculously tiny property might just be the world's smallest house - but it comes with a pretty hefty fee, as it's on the market for a sizeable fee of 275,000.

The tiny, one-bedroom 'pied-a-terre', in the much sought after Richmond Avenue in Barnsbury, Islington, north London, only serves to illustrate the spiralling property prices in the capital.

Confined living space: Not much room to spread about


Pictures show the tiny living area furnished only by two floor cushions, two small stools and a dining table around the size of television screen.

The miniature home has a 'mezzanine sleeping level' which appears little more than a shelf with the stairs accessed by stepping on to a kitchen work surface.

However the new owner of the 'compact' property will have access the the 'many bars, boutique shops restaurants located on Upper Street, only a short distance away'.

The bathroom consists of a shower and toilet only inches apart and it appears highly feasible that one could perform both functions simultaneously.

No wonder the agency selling it describe the house as "unique" and "possibly the smallest house in the world".

Expert projections predict the average price of a house will rise to 800,000 by 2040.

According to property website Zoopla the average price on Richmond Avenue is 1.8M.
