Shed seven figures : Ramshackle shed on the market in a tiny Kent village – for almost a MILLION

August 19, 2015 | by | 0 Comments

A ramshackle wooden building which is close to falling down has become Britain’s most expensive shed after it was put up for sale – for almost a MILLION POUNDS.

The aged wooden shed, which has rotted walls that lean precariously inward, is on a two-acre plot of land that has gone on the market for an astonishing £900,000.

The two-acre plot on the edge of the tiny Kent village of Goudhurst also contains a couple of other derelict farm buildings situated in one corner.

It was slapped with the whopping price tag after the current owner got planning permission to build a huge six-bedroom detached house – designed by Sir Terry Farrell.

A local said: “It’s a fair whack for a manky old shed, but the views are spectacular.

“Goudhurst is a wonderful village, and the local Green Cross Inn is excellent.

“I can’t believe we have Britain’s most expensive shed though – it looks like it could blow down in a strong breeze.”

Anyone with pockets deep enough to buy the land and take on the construction task will be treated to some of the most stunning views in Kent, because the plot is on the edge of the stunning Tiese Valley.

Once the house has been built, its value will be an estimated £2.5million, but it is not clear how much construction costs would run to.

The six-bed mansion was designed by noted architect Sir Terry, who is famed for designing the MI6 building and Charing Cross Station in London.

Estate agent Weald Property described the plot as “a rare building plot of approximately 2.1 acres in North Road, Goudhurst in the heart of the village with planning consent to build a stunning architecturally significant six-bedroom new build with the finest views in Goudhurst.”
