Room (or indeed hut) with a view

Beach Hut

For £240,000 I would expect my beach hut to have “stunning views of the Isle of Wight”,

“Well presented” it may be consisting of a living/sleeping/kitchen area and a mezzanine sleeping area.

“The hut itself will sleep up to six people comfortably having two sofa beds, fitted bunk beds and a mezzanine sleeping area. The kitchen area comes complete with gas cooker and fridge and there is a solar panel providing power for the lighting [and everything else since there is no mains electricity].

Externally there is an enclosed storage area beneath the hut and to the rear there are two further cupboards, one of which houses the gas bottles

In our view [the estate agent, not Exeter Planning] the hut is well designed internally maximising the available living space and an internal inspection is strongly advised to appreciate the charm of the hut and also the outstanding views”

Of course what it does not have is a loo, let alone a shower, instead,

“There is an amenities block nearby where there are shower facilities for beach hut owners”.

Well, whoopy doo.

For nearly quarter of a million I would expect a lavvy.

However, it has already been sold and is a reflection of property prices (I won’t say “value”) on this part of the South Coast.

At present the local council is a client of Exeter Planning because they haven’t been able to recruit an in-house planning lawyer, and given the disparity between local government salaries and house prices it’s hardly surprising
