Estate agent lists ‘detached house for sale’ priced low at £25,000
A UNIQUE ‘detached house’ has hit the market for the bargain price of £25,000 – buyers might need to bring a horse to transport it.
The quintessential shepherd’s hut, set in a field in the village of Thurton, Norfolk, offers a quirky way of living inside a restored horse cart.
While it contains “tailor-made furniture”, a bathroom, a brand new boiler and has been fully fitted with insulation and double glazing, one glaring fact remains.
The cabin, perfect for a cozy holiday retreat, is believed to date from 1914 and still has many original features, including the driver’s footrest.
The images show the wooden caravan from the outside, complete with blue wagon wheels, a driver’s seat in the front and even a thatched roof.
The interior of the caravan has two seating areas running along the two walls, with a small kitchen area – with sink – towards the rear.
A small shower room is also hidden aft, with a removable showerhead and sink for washing up.
Another photo shows the sofa corner unfolded into a bed.
Estate agent Winkworth listed the rare sale last month for offers over £25,000.
The description reads as follows: “Unique opportunity to acquire a remarkable shepherd’s hut.
“Thought to date from 1914, this shepherd’s hut has been beautifully restored to an exceptional standard.
“With the rise of the staycation market, this could make the perfect vacation retreat or unique office space.
“The thatched roof has been meticulously laid out and the attention to detail throughout is sure to impress.
“Fully insulated and featuring a brand new boiler for water, makes this quaint proposition usable all year round.
“The bespoke furniture has been locally handcrafted and provides an impressive seating area that can convert into a comfortable bed.
“The cleverly designed shower room is a must see and double glazed windows are throughout.
“The front seating area and bespoke four wheeler are steeped in history and have been beautifully restored encapsulating the original charm and feeling of the previous owners years before.”
The agent noted at the bottom of the description that the cabin is offered for “off-site sale”, adding that “transportation will be required at the buyer’s expense”.
A social media user joked, “Bring your own horse” on an online listing of the property.
