Overpriced London properties – in pictures
Tiny properties with huge price tags offer a snapshot of London's extreme house prices
London is notorious for its swiftly rising property prices, but even by its own high standards, some properties seem more overpriced than others. The collection of garages, studios, gardens and sheds below provides a snapshot of how unaffordable parts of London have become.
Kensington garage - £650,000
This garage went on the market for £650,000 – the same price as an eight-bedroom country manor in Northumberland, the Daily Mail notes.
Fulham garden - £120,000
In 2013, this 440-square foot garden in Fulham sold for £120,000. It is probably worth significantly more than that now.
Islington kitchenette flat - £737 per month
This tiny all-in-one flat would have set you back £737 per month last year. The property was rented out on the same day it went on the market.
Islington flat - £804 per month
The days when you could get a bed in a kitchen for under £800 a month are long gone however. Now it will set you back £804.
Forest Hill 'house' - £280,000
This "detached house" in Forest Hill can be yours for only £280,000. It's definitely not a shed.
Barnsbury flat - £280,000
No room for a bed? Sleep on a shelf. This property costs £275,000.
'Uninhabitable' Kensington flat - £800,000
Yes it's "uninhabitable". Yes it only has 30 years left on its lease. But it is in Kensington, so it's £600,000.
7ft-wide Harringay house - £235,000
It may be half a house, but it wasn't on the market for half price. The guide price was £235,000.
