An estate agents made the tongue-in-cheek listing asking buyers to make "any offer" for the immaculate four-bedroom property.

But a closer inspection of the mansion's particulars reveals the property, on sale in the picturesque village of Shipston-on-Stour, is just 75cm high and 90cm wide.

The description on Rightmove states: "A classic Georgian House in a quiet location situated in a popular village in South Warwickshire with many original traditional features.
