It's believed the one-of-a-kind home was built in the late 1800s, and due to its age requires a lot of damp work.

Agents expect the property to be bought as a second home or a holiday let, as it doesn't really work as a permanent home due to its accessibility.

The property has one set of steps via a right of access by the shop Ocean City Snacks.
