In the UK, property prices have been sky-high over the last five years, with costs rising by £19,000 on average in the last year.
That means that sometimes unusual homes and buildings go on sale for renovators – from extra skinny London pads to rooms with a kitchen in the bedroom.
But, a rather unusual property went up for sale this week on the roundabout junction of The Ridgeway and ShipBourne Road in Kent.
A former toilet block in Tonbridge will be auctioned off at the Clive Emson Auctioneers – and it has a guide price of a whopping £50,000.
The detached building sits on a 0.13 hectare plot which may be the attraction of buyers.
But, auctioneer John Stockey noted to KentOnline: “There might be other uses the land can be put to, but any changes would require the necessary planning consent to be obtained.
“The brick building has a tiled roof and is close to the edge of the road.
“We anticipate that investors will be interested.”
The pricey loo is listed as Lot 39 and from the photos it looks to be a small building containing doors to a men’s and women’s toilet facilities.
The Clive Emson site states: “A detached brick building under a tiled roof standing on a long rectangular plot.
“Interested parties are advised to make their own enquiries with potential future uses or development of the land and building with the Local Planning Authority.”
External viewings only are available and the building is listed as having zero bedrooms and zero bathrooms, but it is a freehold property.
Other unusual properties listed on the site under the online auction section include a row of garages on land with a guide price of £171,000 in Horsmonden.
And, a Methodist Chapel in Ashford with a current bid of £177,000.
