AN iconic London monument has hit the market for £45,000 – but there’s a catch.
Prospective buyers who have always wanted to own a historic piece of the capital may now be able to make their dreams come true.
Buyers should be aware that their money won’t get them a large lot, but a tiny, albeit iconic, red phone booth.
The red kiosk in upmarket Kensington, west London, is just 3ft deep and wide and just over 8ft tall.
However, it has electricity and is classified as a listed building.
This status means that the buyer can resell the kiosk at any time, but cannot remove it or change the exterior.
And the K6 box – which dates back to the 1930s – could be converted into a store and shop by any potential owner.
The real estate company BidX1 offered the phone booth for sale and the stand could also be used as an advertising space by potential buyers.
Located on Church Street, the phone booth is next to restaurants in the chic area.
It is also very close to Prince William and Kate’s home, Kensington Palace, and also a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace.
But its £45,000 asking price is more than a two-bed house in Britain’s cheapest city to live in.
But for less than the guide price you could buy a family townhouse in Shildon, Co. Durham.
There are two bedroom houses for as little as £30,000 and several currently on the market for between £40,000 and £45,000.
Meanwhile, buyers were on high alert after a Jamiroquai star’s pad was launched for around £500,000.
And recently a spacious three bedroom house came up for sale for just £195,000 although the kitchen might surprise you.
