We all know the feeling of desperation when a parking space fails to materialise. So how would you feel about owning your very own space in the heart of London.. yours for just £75,000.
The hefty price tag is what one shrewd homeowner has placed on his spare parking spot off Westbridge Road in Battersea, SW11 in the hope of finding a buyer with money to burn who would be interested in taking it off his hands.
The daunting asking price is equivalent to a two-bedroom terraced house in Stockport, Greater Manchester, or a brand new Range Rover 3.0 TDV6 Vogue with enough change to cover fuel for half a year - so it might be a while before this wily Battersea resident gets his big pay day.
A resident's parking permit costs £140 a year, and £75,000 would buy you an annual permit for the next 535 years!
There is, thankfully, an altogether more affordable scheme which involves homeowners renting out their parking spaces, with prices ranging around £10 to £15 per day through the website parkatmyhouse.com.
