Tiny house that’s just 13ft-wide on sale for £275K after incredible makeover

In 2019 a tiny detached house in Leicester, measuring just 13ft wide and 26ft high, hit the market for £150,000.

That house was called Rose Cottage and anyone who was sad to miss out on the property is now in luck, as it’s back up for sale once again.

However this time the price tag on the South Knighton home is higher at £275,000 following a complete renovation that has transformed the 120-year-old home into a much more modern pad.

And while the cost might be greater, it’s still pretty cheap when compared to the average price of a detached property in Britain, which is around the £383,000 mark.

Rose Cottage was purchased last year at auction and has had some much-needed TLC, getting a refurbished kitchen, new laminate flooring throughout, new fittings, a new roof, front door and windows, plus a fresh lick of paint on the exterior.

And in case you’re really curious, there’s also a brand new combi boiler.

As well as two bedrooms, the home also features a living room, dining room, kitchen and one bathroom, with a small patio garden out back.

On the market with Newton Fallowell, the property description reads: “Unique and quirky are just two ways of describing this two double bedroom detached property having been thoughtfully modernised throughout and being located within the highly desirable area of South Knighton in Leicester, close to many well-regarded schools and boutique shops.

“Newton Fallowell Estate Agents in Oadby are very proud to bring to the market For Sale one of the most unusual and rare properties in the UK.”

They add: “Measuring approximately 13ft wide and built circa 1900, Rose Cottage offers an opportunity to acquire something very special.

“The accommodation briefly comprises of a front lounge which has been extended to the front aspect along with a sitting/dining room and open plan kitchen to the ground floor.

“The first floor offers two double bedrooms and contemporary fitted bathroom with new combi boiler.”
