Squalid in South Ken

Section:

Squalid store room on a half-landing in South Kensington offered for £30,000 to £50,000 at auction

 

In a further sign that the London property market has gone potty, a squalid store room on a busy main road in South Kensington has is to be auctioned with a guide price of £30,000 to £50,000 on Thursday 18th February.

 

Situated on a half-landing between the first and second floor of 19 Cromwell Road, ‘Suite A’ – as the selling agents Allsop optimistically name the property – is described simply as having “a sink and windows”. Its square footage is not shared but it is held on a long lease of 125 years from the 25th December 2014 with a ground rent of £250 per annum.

The squalid room on offer is plainly in need of significant renovation

There is even a sink and a somewhat dated water heater but the room lacks a bathroom and lavatory

 

Viewings – without the need for an appointment – are available every Wednesday and Friday before the auction between 9.30am and 10am. No doubt the behaviour of the queue that will form around the block to take a look will make the antics of the contestants on Storage Wars seem tame.

Update 18th February: Sold for a staggering £82,500.

    1. There are quite a few of these bijou places in Kensington. I know one, about the same size, that is used by the owner when he is visiting London, from his home in Rome. Better to have a box in Kensington, or Chelsea, that a mansion in Scunthorpe, or some other God forsaken place.

    2. I have seen this kind of thing but fully fitted out in Paris. It is shocking what you could get into s place like this. Bed, Toilet, Shower and Cooking!!
      This would be a gold mine to some err! Not me thank you very much.
