Grand gardening

South Kensington communal garden offered for sale for the staggering sum of £175,000

 

In the Lake District, £175,000 ($264,000 or €249,000) will buy you a quaint cottage alongside a steam railway line but in South Kensington, London, it’ll simply stretch to the price of a 0.183-acre garden. That garden amazingly won’t be for your private use and bizarrely those with a right of access are even allowed to “pass and repass with or without horses”.

Alternatively, you could buy this two bedroom cottage at Backbarrow near Windmere for the same price (Through Matthews Benjamin)

 

On the market through Winkworth prior to being offered by auction on the 17th December, Rosary Gardens is described as being “immaculately kept and maintained by the garden committee and is mainly laid to lawn with a mixture of mature shrubs and trees and provides much sought after outside space for the buildings that enjoy a right of access”.

 

Those with thoughts of a Grand Designs project on an epic scale need not apply. There’s utterly no chance that any change of use would ever be permitted.

  1. Choo choo Michael Portillo should buy the cottage!!!!!!! I once met him at a party in Rosary Gardens given by the Tories actually!!!! You should have made the link!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. What for you is the most irritating feature of THE STEEPLE TIMES? For me it is the gormless ‘Rod’ with his egregious overuse of exclamation marks. (What an ignoramus he is). He’s closely followed by the ‘needle in the groove’ postings of ‘La Trott’. Both seem blithely unaware of how offensive they are.
