Beach hut for sale with guide price of Â£150,000
A wooden beach hut in the Suffolk resort of Southwold has gone on sale with a guide price of Â£150,000.
The hut, called "The Folly", is being sold subject to a 30-year lease from 2012 and there is an additional annual rent payable, reviewed annually, which was Â£670 plus VAT at the last request.
It is also subject to non-domestic rates.
The steep price tag is a world away from our own home-grown holiday chalets.
In 2016, we reported that 10 beach huts in Fleetwood were being constructed at a cost of Â£150,000, and could be snapped-up for an annual rent of Â£1,500 plus VAT which was fixed for the duration of the lease.
Recently, Whitegates Estate Agents advertised a studio chalet on Fleetwood sea front with a kitchen area, breakfast bar and vinyl flooring for Â£13,000.
Beach huts in St Annes, can be rented by the day, with September prices being around Â£55 per day
Estate agent Durrants, which is marketing the Suffolk hut, said in a sale description: "The beach hut is well presented and provides the perfect base for your family holiday by the sea."
It added that the property is in a "highly desirable area of the promenade".
