London property: Massive £783,000 home with 8 bedrooms but the bizarre concrete garden has a tiny patch of grass

MyLondon logo MyLondon 2 days ago Dan Wiggins

Property in London has a certain reputation, often deservedly so, for being somewhat lacking in value for money. Whether it's a single-bed flat worth what you'd pay for a family house in other parts of the country, or a strange single-room apartment in someone's attic charging thousands of pounds a month in rent, it can be a lot.

This particular property, based in one of London's up-and-coming areas in the eastern suburb of Walthamstow, initially doesn't seem to be all too unreasonable. The price tag of £783,995, while high, is tempered by the fact you get eight different bedrooms for that money. What's more, the property has clearly been given some recent TLC, with a fresh coat of paint and fairly recent-looking roofing.

It also boasts four different shower rooms as well as a family bathroom, off-street car-parking for one car, a decent-looking kitchen with a breakfast bar, and a nice big living room to boot. What's more the house, on Boundary Road is within walking distance of both Walthamstow Queens Road Tube station and St James Street Overground station offering some great transport links.

There is one problem though, the garden. The listing description describes this as a "well kept low maintenance garden", and while this isn't untrue, it doesn't quite explain what that low maintenance garden consists of. Concrete, and lots of it.

With everything going so well inside the house, it wouldn't have taken much garden-wise to make this a top-notch property, but what you find out back is effectively a huge concrete plateau from front to back side to side, with a tiny patch of artificial grass bizarrely dropped into the middle.

To the back of the garden, the sense of an unfinished project is even more palpable with exposed concrete breeze blocks making up the back wall leaving the whole thing looking more like a building site than a completed garden.

If you wanted to put your own twist on your garden though this would be the ideal blank canvas, and if gardens aren't your thing, it still offers a fantastic amount of storage space.
