Reader Geoff Spiteri alerted us to this one. A garage for sale in Beckenham for nearly £15,000. That’s roughly equivalent to a taxi ride into central London every day for two years. It’s not just the price that tickles us - garages have previously been on the market for more than ten times the amount. The real pearl here is the optimistic estate agent spin of Wooster and Stock:
Affectionately known as "Garage No. 6", this well proportioned garage is a perfect storage option…There is a light switch which connects to a centrally placed light, so fret not - the garage is just as handy by night as by day!
How disarmingly ingenious. No word, though, as to whether a full roof is provided for convenience in all weathers.
