A property which is narrower in some places than a London bus has gone on the market for £600,000 – but it’s bigger than it seems from outside.

The Tardis-like home is based in the expensive Notting Hill area and looks absolutely tiny from outside.

From the street, the house looks like an out building or even a renovated garage, but, upon entering the one-bed property it seems surprisingly spacious.

When you walk inside you’ll find yourself in a maisonette spread across two floors which is decorated in order to make the best out of the space.

That’s despite the fact that the bedroom and kitchen are both narrower than a Routemaster bus.

Inside the front door there’s a small living room with a sofa and TV plus shelves to provide storage without adding bulk.

If you carry on there’s a modern kitchen with a hob in the countertop and a microwave plus a breakfast bar which takes up less space than a table and chairs.

Skylights make sure the property gets plenty of light while a tasteful staircase leads the resident to a below-ground level.

In the hall a desk and chair create a small office zone and sliding doors lead to the tiny bedroom which measured 7ft 5in across.

A double bed fits comfortably in the room and lights hang from the ceiling, but there’s not much other furniture in the flat other than built in wardrobes and shelves.

The little home is situated in polis Mews where the average home sells for £1.88million, according to Homesite.

And, the average cost of property in London stands at £1,033,548, reports home.co.uk while the average one bedroom costs £497,226.

The average cost of a property in the whole of England stands at £271,000, according to the Office for National Statistics.

The agents stated: “It's located a stone's throw away from the market, boutiques and cafes of Portobello Road and Westbourne Grove.

"The apartment has a modern fully fitted kitchen with brand new Siemens appliances.

"The ground floor level benefits from high ceilings, large sash windows, a skylight and bespoke carpentry with a feature spiral staircase.

"The lower ground level consists of a study area with built in wardrobes, a separate bedroom area and family bathroom that has been finished to an exceptional standard."
