One of the UK’s smallest houses is up for sale for the eye-watering price of £225,000.

The tiny cube-shaped home sits on the Grimston Park Estate in Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, which has been a haunt for the British monarchy since the 1800s.

It is described as being “steeped in history” and is a Grade II listed Georgian gate house.

If you think it could be your dream home, some clever storage solutions may be needed as the miniscule property measures just 10ft 5ins by 8ft 6ins above ground and is just 408sq ft.

The home comes complete with underground living quarters and spiral staircase, and is one of two gatehouses that can be found at the entrance of the Georgian country house in the park.
