Flat in stunning building costs just £450 a month to rent - but wait until you see inside

A tiny studio flat that the agent describes as "petite" has been listed for rent at £450-per-month - but it barely has any room for essentials.

The little apartment in Southampton, Hampshire, is approximately 8ft x 6ft in the living and sleeping area.

Pictures show the main room, consisting of living room, bedroom and kitchen, with a single bed, small bedside cabinet, mini kitchen and fold up desk.

There appears to be no room for a fridge, washing machine or even anywhere to hang up clothes.

An Elfin kitchen is placed in the corner and equipped with two hob cookers, two cupboards, and a small sink.

Beneath is one cupboard, a microwave and two drawers for cutlery.

Two pull out drawers under the bed offer potential tenants room for some of their belongings.

A small bathroom with a small sink, toilet and shower is located in the modest rental which is just across the road from Royal South Hants Hospital.

One window offers natural light into the unfurnished room.

Estate agents MYA Property Ltd listed the rental on the market on Wednesday (11 MAY), saying "Petite studio flat near town centre.

"Private shower room.

"Elfin kitchen with two hobs and a convection microwave.

"No parking.

"Electric, water are included in the rent."

House-browsers have been left baffled by the cosy property.

One said: "Smallest flat in the UK?"

Another wrote: "I can imagine the estate agency staff p*g themselves laughing.

"I'm surprised 'hobbit like' didn't make it in there."

A third commented: "Oh blimey that is depressing."

A fourth added: "Being Southampton I would have thought student digs, right? Right?"

While one joked: "'Petite', 'elfin', someone's got their thesaurus out."
