London’s sky-high property prices never cease to surprise us, so it’s nice when a bargain property crops up. But that’s usually met with suspicion. And a property new to the market in Blackheath, costing a bargain £450,000, compared with the area’s £800,000 average, definitely has something to hide – or, rather, something hiding it. You literally can’t see the house for the trees. We’re not talking well-kept topiary either, it’s more like a forest.
However, the listing for the property on Ruthin Road in Blackheath assures us there are three bedrooms in there somewhere. It also has a 50ft garden and a garage.
The house went up for auction today in Mayfair via Savills Auctions at The Marriott hotel and sold for £554,000.
Savills Auctions describes the home as being ‘in need of complete modernisation’. Ya think?
