The latest des res to hit the booming London property market is this remarkable two bin property in the Victoria Street area of Westminster.
Concealed within the shabby chic façade are two well appointed rooms, providing excellent camouflage from the street. The property is handily located for local services, with tube and rail links close at hand and the council will even come round once a week to do the cleaning.
Each room is configured in a modern ‘open plan’ style, with a trendy, young indoor/outdoor living style in mind. Bathroom facilities are handily contained in the coffee shop around the corner, as is the study.
The property is rated as ecologically friendly, with a zero balance for power consumption. Planning permission has been granted to extend to a third wheelie bin, if the buyer wishes to develop the property further.
Whilst the lack of garden amenity appears a disadvantage, Green Park is within a short walking distance.
The previous occupant was a junior government minister, who vacated the property when the standards committee declined his claim for second home living expenses, he has returned to Belgravia to live with mummy.
This prime location is handy for anyone working in the city centre, offering remarkable savings in tube fares and access to the best London has to offer. It is considered to be a solid first step for anyone looking to take the first step on the property ladder and a snip at £350,000.
Update; The property has been sold, to a friend of the agent, before being publicly listed. It is now back on the market at £425,000.
