A tiny parking space is on sale for a staggering £70,000.

The two-metre wide parking space is so small the driver can only open one door.

Boutique estate agency Nicolas Van Patrick is selling the plot which is located in a shared garage in Knightsbridge, west London.

Pictures of tiny space showed a car only just fitting into the narrow gap, which is 5.5 metres long.

Such a narrow space would not fit larger SUV cars such as the Jaguar F-Pace, which measures 2.175m in width with the mirrors open.

The space is so narrow the driver would be forced to climb to the passenger seat – in a right-hand drive vehicle – in order to get out.

Knightsbridge is known as being a playground for the rich and famous, being home to upmarket Harrods and the average terraced house selling for around £4.5million.

Patrick Alvarado, director and co-founder of Nicolas Van Patrick, said: "This parking space is best suited for left hand drive cars as then you can get out unencumbered."

The listing added: "A single allocated parking space with in a small garage which is sandwiched between Rutland Gate and Ennismore Mews.

"The space is approximately 2 metres wide by 5.5 metres long, with good height."

"With two automated gates operated by fobs, and CCTV the garage is considered to be very secure. It also benefits from access to water."

In addition to the £70,000 price tag, additional costs are the £369.46 per quarter service charge, working out at 1,477.84 per year, and ground rent of £48 per annum.
