A unique and cleverly converted one bedroom lodge which guards the gates of Grimston Park, a Grade II Listed Georgian country house in North Yorkshire, is on the market for £250,000.

Sunset Lodge is one of a pair of symmetrical lodges standing either side of the wrought iron gates which frame the original driveway to the stately home. Measuring just 10ft by 8ft, it's believed to be Britain's smallest detached house.

The property, which is arranged over two floors, is built from Limestone Ashlar blocks and features a number of distinctive architectural details, including a stepped roof topped by a kneeling figure of a warrior.

The ground floor houses a mezzanine bedroom and dressing area but the majority of the accommodation is on the lower ground floor, where a bright but cosy living area leads directly onto the kitchen with orangery-style roof and doors opening onto a sunken patio.

On the opposite side of the living room is a bathroom built into the original barrel-ceilinged cellar. Outside, there's a generous lawned garden with mature hedging and a dwarf wall topped by cast iron railings.

On either side there are beautiful views of the impressive Grimston Park and the associated parkland which stretches down to the banks of the River Wharfe, with Tadcaster visible in the distance.

There is space for at least two cars to park adjacent to the entrance and the property is situated approximately half a mile from the A162, which provides direct access to Tadcaster, and the A64 Leeds to Scarborough trunk road.

Take a look around...
