This Yorkshire bolthole ticks a lot of boxes: it’s Grade II-listed and is part of a glorious Georgian country estate. So what’s the catch? It measures just 10ft 5” by 8ft 6”.

Located on the Grimston Park Estate in North Yorkshire, the Old Gatehouse is for sale at £225,000 via Hunter’s and looks like a limestone cube, concealing a semi-subterranean layout that’s a surprising reveal.

At 406 sq ft, it’s thought to be one of Britain’s smallest homes but though dinky, it’s perfectly formed. The basement houses a sunken living room and kitchen, bathroom (with freestanding bath) and a space-saving spiral staircase that connects to the mezzanine bedroom above.

More alluring is the tiny home’s views: French double doors open onto the topiary-enclosed gardens, which run up to Grimston Park House.

The Old Gatehouse is pitched as a potential holiday let or a rural getaway for commuters working in Leeds or York.
