At just 328 square feet (30.5 square meters), it is roughly one-third the size of the average U.K. home. The asking price is a hefty £950,000 ($1.53 million)—the average U.K. house price stood at £ 186,270 in August, according to mortgage lender Halifax.
The newly-refurbished property consists of a "studio room" with space for a double bed, plus a bathroom. The kitchen is smaller than an average prison cell, but on the plus side, the apartment is right next to a Michelin-starred restaurant.
U.K. house prices have increased sharply over the past year, driven by government-funded schemes to boost lending and historically low interest rates. In addition, the reputation of the London property market as a "safe haven" has seen it attract foreign buyers, particularly at the higher end of the market, which has exacerbated a housing shortage.
UK house price growth at 7-year high
House prices increased by 11.7 percent in the year to July 2014, according to the Office for National Statistics. London continued to be the English region with the highest average house price, at £514,000 – prices were up 19.1 percent year-on-year in the city in July.
