When it comes to real estate, it’s incredible what you can put a price on these days, with tents, windowless flats and beds in cupboards commanding top dollar in this town. Which is probably why someone thought it’d be perfectly fine to ask £360,000 for, if our eyes aren't deceiving us, a garage. Not a three-bedroom terrace house in Kingston. Not a two-bed flat in Whitechapel. But a grubby garage in Stoke Newington, described as being near a 'very quiet yet central small mews just off Stoke Newington Road' and being 'very close to numerous bus routes and the amenities of both Stoke Newington Church Street to the north and Dalston to the south'. Who knew?
In actual fact, it's the land that's for sale, and if planning permission goes through it could be transformed into a 'two-storey, one bedroom mews house'. Translation? A very small pad. But if not, it'll just be another premium parking space, which at that price, should at least come with a car (or three).
