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”.
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.
