A tiny house squeezed between two terrace properties in the London borough of Haringey is being sold at auction next month with a guide price of £235,000.

The 7ft-wide house in St Anns Road, close to Green Lanes, is apparently built in the space between much larger homes. It boasts two bedrooms, a super-slim living room and a roof terrace. 

A wider home on the same street is likely to set you back at least double the asking price. House prices in the area have increased by 23% over the past 12 months. According to the estate agent McHugh & Co, the owner is hoping to make significantly more than the guide price when it goes up for auction October 1.

Tiny houses appearing in gaps on London's terraced streets are nothing new and are another sign of the capital's housing crisis.

Earlier this year, the owner of a property erected into a gap between two houses in Manor Road, Leyton, lost his appeal against an order to remove it. The house had been built into a garage space and was made of plywood.
