My sister visited from England once, to my old house in Dallas. She couldn't get over the size of our walk-in closet because it was the same size as the bedroom for her son. Thing is, that tells you more about house sizes in the UK than the size of the closet which, actually, was smaller than the one we have now.
What that leaves you with over the pond is a lot of very small houses selling for a lot of money. And it leaves you with people paying a crap-load (pun intended, as you'll see) for rather odd abodes. For example, a public toilet. Granted, the view is rather nice (if you like matching gray seas and skies) but the going price was about 50,000 pounds for... well, have a look for yourself. And see how much the chappie paid.
Have a super weekend.
