Windowless in South Ken

Windowless property in South Kensington goes to auction with a guide price of just £20,000; there is, of course, a catch

In May this year, we featured a tiny “room without a loo” that was available for rent in Onslow Gardens, South Kensington for £210 per week ($277, €234 or درهم1,017 per week) and today we share without something equally ludicrous: A windowless storage room within Habib House, 21 – 22 Stanhope Gardens with a guide price of £20,000 ($26,400, €22,300 or درهم96,800).

To be offered by auctioneers Barnard Marcus on 15th December, the second floor storage “area” to be sold is described as “one room… held on a lease for a term of 999 years from 19th July 2019 at nil ground rent.” It measures just 11’4” by 7’8” and is currently filled with cleaning products and all manner of old gubbins.

 

In February 2016, a “squalid windowless store room on a half-landing” on Cromwell Road that appeared on our pages sold for the staggering sum of £82,500 ($108,800, €91,900 or درهم400,000) at auction. It had been guided at what had seemed a punchy estimate of £30,000 to £50,000 ($40,000 to $66,000, €33,000 to €56,000 or درهم145,000 to درهم242,000), so maybe there is indeed a market for such spaces.

For someone with deeper pockets, but an equal predilection for old tat, a scruffy, junk filled one bedroom in Habib House’s dark and dingy looking basement is also on offer. The price? A somewhat ambitious guide price of £440,000 ($580,000, €490,000 or درهم2.1 million) has been set.

Windowless in South Ken – Barnard Marcus share only one image of the £20,000 room on offer. It does not exactly present the supposed bargain property in the most flattering light.

Windowless in South Ken – A floor plan of the minute space shows how small it truly is. As the most honest estate agent ever, the late Roy Brooks, would say: “Not enough room to swing a cat.”

  1. I can think of someone who’ll need it soon… Carrie Symonds… She might want to lock Boris in there when she runs off into the sunset drunk on red wine with a certain billionaire’s son who is her baby’s real daddy. Carrie liked politics whilst it lasted but it won’t last for her and thus she’ll go after the moneyed one and his family next.
