Commutable beach hut goes for £170,000

This 5.6m x 3.2m wooden beach hut at Mudeford near Bournemouth has just been snapped up for a mere £170,000 (plus £2,500 ground rent) after a whole two days on the market. It does have a kitchen and sleeps (at a bit of a push) six, but while there is running water and solar panels to provide light, there's no lavatory. The asking price was actually £175,000 although there are several cheaper ones on the estate agent's site.

Interestingly, a spokesman for Denison's who sold the property told The Guardian that he knew of people who stayed in fully fitted huts such as this during the summer and commuted to work. "They get up at 6am, put on their suit, get on the little boat up to Christchurch where they catch the train to work," he said.

    What are the chances of getting a start-home morgage on a beach hut? Hmmm....
