Searching for houses in Southampton, like much of the UK, can be quite a tricky task, especially with house prices almost continually on the rise.

You might wonder what some of the cheapest properties you can buy in the area are, excluding options such as shared ownership or retirement property.

If you're looking for a property on the lower end of the price scale in Southampton, then Zoopla may have an option for you.

An "ideally-placed" two-bedroom terraced home on Yeovil Chase is currently on the market for £230,000.

On its Zoopla profile, it says: "This mid-terrace family home provides good living space and is well presented by the current owners.

"Features of the property include two bedrooms, a lounge/diner and kitchen with separate utility room, whilst to the rear of the home is an enclosed garden."

Upon entering the property through a porch you find the central hallway where you can continue to the lounge/diner.

This family space overlooks the rear garden which has double doors open out to it, and has a modern fireplace with surround and hearth.

A door opens to the separate utility room from where you can access the front garden.

Heading upstairs you can find the two bedrooms which both overlook the rear garden and benefit from fitted wardrobes.
