Oh my god the price! That is all shades of wrong!

FriskyHenderson Sun 08-Sep-13 20:55:43

But it's perfect! It frings the park!

Chubfuddler Sun 08-Sep-13 20:56:41

Mrsdevere it's not your neighbour is it?

RippingYarns Sun 08-Sep-13 20:57:25

hasn't even got a window sad

StiffyByng Sun 08-Sep-13 20:59:07

It actually frings a junction, with a bus route on it. The park in question is a 10 minute walk away.

TeamEdward Sun 08-Sep-13 21:01:51

Bloody hell. shock

bundaberg Sun 08-Sep-13 21:02:34

ha chubfuddler beat me to it! lol

MollyBerry Sun 08-Sep-13 21:03:29

Wow! That costs considerably more than my 3 bed flat...

LoopThePoop Sun 08-Sep-13 21:06:05

Holy shit.
That's just nuts.

SubliminalMassaging Sun 08-Sep-13 21:08:35

Good grief. 350k for a poncey portakabin. confused

Maryz Sun 08-Sep-13 21:21:28

That's far nicer than MrsDeVere's neighbours. And probably has planning permission.

But really, the price shock.

I presume there will soon be a London version of the Great Irish Property Fiasco sad

Flossiechops Sun 08-Sep-13 21:32:44

Omg how much for a shed?! Do London house prices know no limit?? I bet some idiot 'snaps' it up too shockshockshockshock

PigletJohn Sun 08-Sep-13 21:57:50

I sense a leg-pull.

VivaLeBeaver Sun 08-Sep-13 22:00:56

If it was April the 1st I'd think it was a joke.

That's more than double what my 3 bed house with a massive garden is worth.

MummytoMog Mon 09-Sep-13 00:09:13

Is that a joke? Forest Hill? You couldn't pay me to live there, but you could buy my house in a nice Zone 4 suburb, within a mile of a tube station for that much. That plot would fit in my garden. My garage is bigger than that. It's a joke right?

Barbabeau Mon 09-Sep-13 06:07:21

It's Forest Hill/Honor Oak Park on the fringes of East Dulwich. On the upside it's been on sale for 3 weeks and is not under offer yet.

I go by there occasionally and have never noticed it. Next time I'm going to look out for it and marvel.

RedHelenB Mon 09-Sep-13 07:23:00

Would banks give a mortgage of that valuation though?

That costs more than double my detached 4 bedroom with a summer house that size in the garden

StiffyByng Tue 10-Sep-13 14:30:06

Drove past this today. It really is just a big shed - those photos are very well done as the place is tiny.

Barbabeau Tue 10-Sep-13 16:25:58

Well they've now dropped the price by £25k to £325,000. Perhaps they haven't had many viewings as people are not keen to pay a huge sum to live in a glorified shed.

GemmaTeller Tue 10-Sep-13 16:49:45

shock omg, what the hell?

YellowDahlias Tue 12-Nov-13 20:28:53

More evidence of the end of times - a new opportunity to buy a mini house for a bargain price. Close to the other bargain shed which does not appear to be on the market anymore.

Ugly as fuck. It looks like a primary school portakabin from the front.

UsedToBeNDP Tue 12-Nov-13 20:37:23

That second one is revolting too - £450k? Hilarious but then I have no idea what the competition goes for in that area and it does have a private garden and no upstairs/downstairs neighbour noise that you'd get in a conversion or flat situation.

WhataSook Wed 13-Nov-13 08:14:49

My question is who are these people who can afford to buy these properties??!

I started a thread a while ago about London prices as my neighbour sold her house for nearly £70,000 more than we paid for ours only a few years ago (and I've been inside, it is nice, but not an extra £70,000 worth of nice!). We are talking a stand EOT, two up two down with a backyard increasing by that amount in less than 3 years. Shocking.

deepfriedsage Wed 13-Nov-13 08:26:31

It is no longer on the market.

SidandAndyssextoy Tue 24-Dec-13 01:45:51

The original shed has sold. There's a sold sign outside it. I can't wait to find out what they got for it.

Aethelfleda Fri 27-Dec-13 18:05:28

Post back on here when you find out, Sid!

wetaugust Fri 27-Dec-13 22:09:48

The 2nd one makes the original one look like a good deal.

But 300K for a house with a garden and parking - so you could actually demolish it and buidl a 'proper' multi-storey house on the land. That would be worth more than the £300K.

RudolphtheRedknowsraindear Sat 28-Dec-13 19:34:59

Where do you sleep? There's no bedroom in either shed property. Also, the back,"garden," isn't big enough for a decent tent, so you can't even sleep there fconfused!

SidandAndyssextoy Sat 28-Dec-13 19:48:50

There really isn't room to build a house on the shed plot. It's someone's smallish side garden and borders directly on to the pavement on a busyish junction with buses. It's newly built so presumably the only thing that the planners allowed.

The second one is in 'the heart of' East Dulwich which is why it costs so much more.

lulupeg Sun 29-Dec-13 09:32:08

Someone round the corner from me (same broad area as the original shed) is building one of these in their medium sized back garden. It looks TINY from what I can see of the plot. Also it's in the garden of a 30s terrace house that has already been divided into two flats. I really think that's a horrid use of space, 30s terraces make fab family homes but two flats and a mini house in the garden - yak!

Methe Sun 29-Dec-13 09:36:55

The shed I could cope with but that front garden is hideous!

The second one is a granny annex isn't it? £450k for it and its sold! What a mug.

octopusinasantasack Sun 29-Dec-13 10:30:59

The cabins on some cruise ships are bigger than that bungalow!

Toospotty Fri 28-Mar-14 19:38:53

I've just noticed that this shed is now under offer at £290,000 asking price.

TinyDiamond Sat 29-Mar-14 21:29:19

This has been for sale for quite some time. A friend lives nearby and linked it on her facebook around 6 months ago. Crazy.

TinyDiamond Sat 29-Mar-14 21:29:57

Oh. just realised the date of the OP
