Is it possible to buy a property for £10,000? Yes, but it may not be exactly what you are looking for…

With the average value of a home in England being more than £250,000, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it is virtually impossible to buy anything for £10,000 cash.

But Zoopla has found five properties that fit the bill – on the financial front at least, as while they all cost £10,000, they all have certain twists and unusual characteristics.

Five £10,000 properties for sale:

1. The Magical Teapot

Estate agents Rettie describes the teapot as ‘very quirky’, with his spout entrance to the ground floor and steps to the second, where there’s a window to let any steam out if the room gets too hot.

Anne Mitchell, of estate agents Rettie, which is handling the sale, said the structure would make a ‘fabulous addition to any visitor attraction’ be it as a feature for a children’s playground, as a quirky fishing hut, as a reception area or VIP lounge.

The two storey detached structure is 21ft in diameter and currently situated on the Scottish Boarders. While the buyer is advised to dismantle it on collection, a re-erection service is negotiable.

2. Houseboat

This boat in Kent is an ideal opportunity for someone looking for an alternative starter home.

The classic wood interior contains many original features. There is a separate cabin – with sleeping for two – and the option to sleep guests on a convertible bed in the lounge, which also converts into a dining area. And there is a separate wet room with a sea toilet and shower.

3. Cupcake bakery

This popular cupcake bakery can be found in Swansea City Centre and has a current annual rent of £15,600.

It is spread over two floors with a café and kitchen area on the ground floor and a further seating area and toilet on the second floor.

The café, which has a glass front, provides 30 covers inside and 11 outside.

4. Bungalow

A one bedroom bungalow is not out of reach for those confined to this price bracket.

This property can be found 30 miles to the south of Newcastle and includes a lounge, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and rear yard.

It is situated in Coundon Grange, in Bishop Auckland, and is being sold as seen due to the lack of access.

5. Beach hut

Beach huts are proving more popular than ever, with those in some locations being sold for six figures sums.

But at £10,000, this hut on the north Essex coast is a bargain, providing uninterrupted views of the sea.

It is also within reach of the nearby pier and kiosks.
