PENARTH does not exactly have a reputation for being cheap and affordable.

There are often listings on property sites for houses that are being offered for more than £1 million.

Indeed, the cheapest property on the market is not a full house, but rather a one bedroom apartment that costs more than some houses elsewhere in the UK.

The first property that appeared on site Rightmove that was not a garage or a retirement home was a £155,000 ground floor apartment at Wood Street in Penarth.

Listed by agents Peter Alan, the apartment has one bedroom, a bathroom and an open plan living room and kitchen.

The bedroom

The bedroom has enough room for a double bed, though currently has a single bed, and has a radiator.

To get to the bathroom you have to enter through the bedroom.

However, the bathroom is very spacious and has a separate bath and shower.

The bathroom

The main area of the apartment, the combined kitchen and living room, is large enough to hold a few sofas.

The area has a bay window and velux window near the door.

An electric oven and ceramic hob with an extractor fan are included in the property.

While undoubtedly compact, the apartment is close to amenities and is located within walking distance to the town centre.
