London parking space costs as much as five-bed Scottish retreat
An underground parking space in central London is on the market for as much as a rural Scottish retreat with spectacular views and almost two acres of land.
For £375,000 you could buy the 215 sq ft bay in a car park below Kingston House South, a plush apartment block in Knightsbridge.
The car park is just a ten-minute walk from both the Royal Albert Hall and Harrods, while the space itself appears to be currently occupied by an old school brown Mercedes.
Agents Nicolas Van Patrick state that the added benefits of the plot include a daily garage porter and CCTV. The space is also boxed in by a metal cage.
For the same price, however, you could get the keys to a remote, five-bedroom house tucked away in the Scottish hamlet of Stronafian – overlooking the quite stunning Loch Riddon.
The property, named Cala-Na-Sith, was built in 1929 and is nestled in 1.8 acres of its own land.
The house has been recently renovated but without doubt the biggest selling point of this impressive home is the breath-taking vistas out over the Kyles of Bute for as far as the eye can see.
So which would you rather spend your money on? A parking space that’s convenient for sightseeing some of the capital’s best attractions or a remarkable countryside getaway north of the border…
Incidentally, the national average asking price (as of February 2020) is £309,399.
