A double garage unit in north London was sold for £251,000 at an auction on Wednesday, putting it at a level well over the price of an average British home.
The unit, on Crouch Hall Road in the leafy suburb of Highgate, includes two lock-up garages and was sold for over three times its £80,000 guide price.
The sale took place at a McHugh & Co auction held at the British Academy Of Film & Television Arts (BAFTA) in Piccadilly, Estates Gazette reports.
In contrast to the Highgate garden's £251,000 pricetag, the average cost of a British home is just £169,624.
The sale comes after a Chelsea garden, which the owner cannot build on or use for barbecues, was sold for £53,000.
However, the garage unit is still cheaper than the Chelsea parking space which was put on sale for £300,000 in August.
