New Homes
Buying a new home in the UK

Barratt Homes leads the way with the smallest home in the UK – ‘Manhattan pods’ in Harlow  have only 34 metres square of space, and a living room measuring a mere 3 x 3.6 metres.

CABE conducted the research with the owners of 2,500 private new homes, to explore views on the adequacy of internal space.

“The majority of householders – 57 per cent – said they did not have enough storage space, while 72 per cent said they did not have enough space for three small bins required for proper recycling.”
