If you told someone you had £25K to spend on a York home, they’d probably say ‘You can’t get a shoebox for that’.

But in fact your money could buy you much more – this delightful and unique home, for example.

It’s not very big – it’s actually called the Tiny House.

But the best things come in small packages.

Quite beautiful… the Tiny House

The hand-crafted, bespoke made Tiny House was built by Homeworks, a family-run joinery business in York.

On sale with estate agents RM English, the home has versatility built in: “If you are seeking an alternate lifestyle centred on sustainability, or just require additional space for personal or family use, then this could be the ideal purchase for you, the details say.

“The property is extremely versatile and could be used as a home office, artist’s studio, fishing hut, glamping accommodation or as an AirB&B.”

What you get

A hob, fridge and sink in the kitchen

The Tiny House movement is already well developed in the US, and has recently started to become more popular within the UK, thanks to programmes like George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces.

This one has been made with timber from sustainable forests, and insulated with sheep’s wool. The windows are double glazed.

So what do you get for your £25,000?

There’s a living space with oak floor, wardrobe and shelving. To the rear is a kitchen with gas hob, fridge and sink.

That is next to the shower room and toilet. “Depending on site circumstances, the toilet can be either chemical, composting or water flushed (plumbing has been installed for the latter),” the details say.

“There is a lightweight ladder stored against the built in wardrobe, which can be easily moved and positioned to provide access to the bedroom above, as well as the additional storage above the front door.”

Right now, the house is at Huby, north of York. But it can be towed anywhere…
