A CONVERTED garage in Bridgwater has gone on the market for just short of £75,000.

The one bedroom detached house in Wembdon Road may be just 13ft wide but estate agents Tamlyns says people have travelled 160 miles to view it.

The tiny property, on the market for £74,950, features a sitting/dining/kitchen room, a rear hall and bathroom on the ground floor and a double bedroom on the first floor. It even has its own miniature courtyard overlooking the canal.

Mark Franklin, Tamlyns associate director, told the Mercury: “People from Bridgwater will know the property. It has previously been a garage and a washing machine repair place.

“It’s certainly very quirky. It’s the smallest freehold property I’ve ever seen.

“We’ve had around a dozen viewings and a few offers. Someone even came from as far as Surrey to view it.”

The house is described as an ‘ideal investment or first-time buy’ but Tamlyns do caution there is ‘restricted head height’ in the bedroom for taller people.
