St Ives, Cornwall is a desirable spot in which to live, but would you want to stay there in a four-metre-wide house?

The chance to make this a reality is here now, as a narrow house that’s only four metres wide has gone on the market for £700,000.

Situated just 150 yards from Porthmeor beach, the property is glass-fronted, meaning there are incredible sea views.

Despite the narrow width, the property is a two-bed with two baths.

There’s more room outdoors thanks to a roof terrace overlooking the sunken courtyard garden.

On the lower floor there’s an open-plan kitchen and diner, two en-suite bedrooms – plus the courtyard.

The upper floors are home to a living room and the terrace.

The sea views overlook the town to Carbis Bay beach and have Porth Kidney Sands in the distance.

The property is currently on the market for a £700,000 guide price with Lillicrap Chilcott.
