Britain’s Cheapest Freehold?

Waterfront property in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire heads to auction for an extraordinarily low price

A property – if you can call it such – that extends to approximately 129.17 square feet in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire on the 20th February.

 

Described as a “flying freehold with [an] inaccessible room” wedged between two buildings, the 16th century space has been owned by Fenland District Council since 1966, but nobody seems to know what’s actually in there.

 

Britain’s Cheapest Freehold? £100 for a flying freehold room in Nene Quay, Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, PE13 1AQ, United Kingdom through William H. Brown – Waterfront property in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire heads to auction for an extraordinarily low price.
The “mystery room” is situated between 5 and 6 Nene Quay in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire, PE13 1AQ, United Kingdom.

Featuring a window at the front and a boarded up access hatch at the rear, this bizarre offering is to be sold by William H. Brown. The guide price is £100 ($130, €118 or درهم478) and of it, the firm’s East Anglian auction manager, Victoria Reek, told the Eastern Daily Press:

 

“We think it would make an ideal store room for a market stall holder, but it gives you no access rights, it really is just a room at the moment [that] you can’t get into.”

 

For those not fearful of Coronavirus and given the limited space offered might not allow for the fitting of a kitchen, the room is situated next to an establishment named the Tasty China restaurant. Their food, however, isn’t exactly Michelin worthy and of it online, one Kelly Phelps remarked: “Everything was the same colour which was very dark brown and really dry, next morning hubby and I lived on the loo.”
