A LUXURY waterfront beach hut with stunning views has gone on the market for the same price as a four-bed house.

The tiny blue hut is found on the remote Mudeford Sandbank, in Christchurch, Dorset.

Prospective owners will find themselves next to the exclusive Sandbanks Resort where celebs such as Harry Redknapp and son Jamie Redknapp reside.

The property has no toilet or shower and requires a 30 minute walk to get there.

But despite this, the wooden shack costs £154,000 more than the average house in the UK.

It means potential buyers will have to fork out a hefty £450,000 if they wish to get their hands on the unique abode.

However, the cosy hut can command such an eye-watering price as it is one of the best positioned cabins on Mudeford.

Unlike most of the other 350 huts there, hut 170 is on a single row with no others in front or behind it.

New buyers will have dual aspect views of the sea and the Isle of Wight on one side and Christchurch Harbour from the other.

Unlike most other beach huts across the country, the ones at Mudeford can be slept in for eight months of the year.

Hut 170 can sleep six people; with the seats in the lounge area being converted into a bed and a mezzanine floor level offering more sleeping space.

It has solar panels on the roof which can provide 12 volts of power for an electric fridge, kettle and lights, as well as a gas powered oven.

There is a wooden deck at the rear to make the most of the sunset harbour views while the front doors open out to the sandy beach. 

A communal toilet and shower block are nearby with no bathroom in the hut.

The estate agent tasked with selling it has a waiting list of prospective owners and believes it will go within days.

Andy Denison, of Denison’s estate agents which is selling the Mudeford hut, believes the trend for staycations is driving up demand – and prices.

He said: “It might be mid-winter and wet and windy but now is the best time of year to be buying and selling beach huts.

“People are back at work and are starting to think about their staycations or about taking a new direction for their summer holidays.

“From April 1, the local council will be increasing ground rents for beach huts so now is the time to get in and buy before that happens.

“Also, if people buy now they will be ready for the start of summer”

Over the past 20 years, prices for beach huts at Mudeford have ballooned from £80,000 to well over £400,000 today.

It is impossible to secure a mortgage on them and so interested parties must be cash-buyers.

Mr Denison said: “With the beach huts at Mudeford people are buying a lifestyle as well as an investment.
