A tiny flat smaller than the average UK parking space is on the market for £150,000 in an affluent part of London. 

The studio in Notting Hill, West London, is just 79sq ft in area - compared to the average UK parking space that works out at around 122sq ft.

In some areas of the country, the price tag could potentially buy you a house with a few bedrooms and maybe even a garden.

But this studio is just one room, incorporating both 'kitchen' - made up of a cupboard with sink and hotplate on top of it - and a shower within touching distance of the bed.

Floorplans show a separate toilet in the corner of the room, which measures 9ft 3ins by 8ft 4ins in total.
