A dilapidated one-bedroom house just seven feet wide in a tourist spot in Wales has come on the market for £150,000.

The property – dubbed a ‘bijou bolt hole’ by estate agents – is set back from the road at the end of a long front garden in Mumbles, on the outskirts of Swansea.

It consists of only four rooms – a living room, kitchen and dining room, a bedroom and a bathroom.

The listing states that it “needs to be slightly upgraded” but “presents a fantastic opportunity” for a buyer who is willing to put in the effort.

The house is just a stone’s throw from the beach in Mumbles – a coastal tourist attraction – where house prices average over £300,000.

‘This truly unique property offers the inbound buyer an opportunity to purchase some of Mumbles’ history.

‘The ground floor has been extended with a living room for additional living space and a kitchen/dining room in the original part of the building.

‘From here there is a staircase to the first floor bedroom which leads to the bathroom.

‘To the front of the house there is a garden and driveway which provides invaluable off road parking and to the rear there is a small outdoor area with back access.’

It adds: ‘This gem of a bolt hole needs some refurbishment but presents a fantastic opportunity.

‘Located in a prime location in the heart of Mumbles, just a stone’s throw from the bars, restaurants, cafes and shops that the village has to offer.

‘And a stone’s throw from the nearby promenade, with plenty of other beaches including Langland and Caswell and the Gower Peninsula easily accessible too.’
