A LONDON garage has been listed on the market for a whopping £750k – thought to be the most expensive in British history.
The 303sqft space in central London is in a 24-hour portered block of flats in Portman Square, with Selfridges and Oxford Street just a stones throw away.
The double space is in the same building as an apartment used for the F section of the Special Operations Executive in the Second World War.
The closet tube station is an easy 0.2 mile walk to Bond Street or 0.3 miles to Marble Arch.
In 2016, a garage in Chelsea became a UK record holder when it sold for £670,000.
The double garage was between two large homes near the River Thames.
But the Portman Square listing surpasses the Chelsea price tag by a huge £80,000.
Astoundingly, for the same cost, drivers could park in a nearby NCP car park on a season ticket price for an entire 140 years.
The most expensive car parking spot in the UK was near the Royal Albert Hall in London and sold for £400,000, slightly more than half the price of the Portman Square listing.
Last year, a run-down single car garage went on the market for the princely sum of £100,000 – more than a three-bed terrace house in some parts of the country.
The garage, located in Bosham, close to Chichester Harbour, is in a desirable area where a three-bed house is currently for sale for £850,000 without any parking space.
The most expensive places to park in the UK have also been revealed.
