Quirky home causes mini stir
A QUIRKY house up for sale has sparked controversy online - with its pint-sized proportions causing a stir.
The one-bedroom property close to Ramsbottom town centre also features a kitchenliving space and an en-suite bathroom.
The Spring Street home is listed for £70,000.
While this might seem typical, the internal layout has social media users talking.
Its half-sized staircase is an eye-catching detail, as is the size of the kitchen.
Some users on Twitter have blasted the layout of the property, while others say the house has real potential.
“Everyone look at this terrible tiny house attempt,” a user named
Hannah, tweeting, said. “[It has] only two rooms and they’re both the worst use of space I’ve ever seen.”
Others said the space made them feel ‘queasy’ and that it had been built ‘with little thought.’
However, other accounts defended the property, saying the right buyer could make it into a good home.
“Yes, it is a pity, a tiny space but a decent int designer or architect could make much better use,” Gary Cummins tweeted.
GiveMeSpace3 added: “Narrow boats have had good layouts for decades, and I reckon the designer could learn a thing or two there too.”
The home, marketed by Pearson Ferrier, is an end of terrace home.
It features gas central heating, double glazing, and no onward chain.
