Video & Gallery: A tour of the Framlingham house thought to be Suffolk’s smallest

IT is definitely a house for an individual – which is just as well, as there’s not much room for anybody else.

The Check House in Framlingham is thought to be one of the smallest houses in Suffolk.

The unique property, which was part of a steam mill, is just over seven feet wide and offers just 308 square feet of space inside.

But if you’re looking for a cosy, bijou home just a short walk from the town centre, it could be yours for �95,000.

The one-bedroom house is part of the sought-after Mauldens Mill development in Bridge Street, near to the centre of Framlingham.

The building used to be a bookmakers’ shop but was converted into a home eight years ago by Ashmill Developments, and was previously rented out.

It has a kitchen, bedroom, shower room (with toilet) and sitting room.

The property has been completely renovated and includes kitchen fittings and a paddle staircase, and overlooks a communal garden and courtyard. It is attached to the next-door property.

“It’s a really unique property, very different and I think it’s the smallest house we’ve ever dealt with,” said Julie Williams, of estate agent Clarke and Simpson.

“It is last remaining Victorian part of the old steam mill. The rest of the mill has been redeveloped or was knocked down for new buildings.

“It also has an ‘upside down’ design, with a kitchen and reception room on the first floor and a bedroom and shower room on the ground floor.

“We’ve had a fair bit of interest but it’s really only for one person – I wouldn’t like to share it with anybody.”
