An unusual property in one of London’s most desired locations is going under the hammer, but with a very strange feature.
A lower ground floor room in Queen’s Gate Gardens, just a stone’s throw from the Natural History Museum in South Kensington is listed for just £150,000.
But there’s a reason. It appears to have a huge hole in one wall.
The property is approximately 19 sq m (205 sq ft), and according to auctioneers Allsop, benefits from natural light via an external window, and can be accessed from either the main raised ground floor entrance or via the lower ground floor entrance”.
It also says the leasehold property has the potential for a variety of uses subject to obtaining necessary consents.
Richard Watson, partner in Allsop’s residential auction team, said: “This is a unique development opportunity in a prime location opposite a garden square in South Kensington, which will appeal to a range of investors.
Subject to obtaining all necessary consents, the property could be suitable for a range of uses from storage to an office or a studio apartment.
“The owner also won’t have to pay any service charge, which is incredibly rare in a building like this.”
It will go under the hammer on March 30.
