Got a spare £2.25 million? Buy this Mayfair car park

Posted at 12:20 pm, October 15, 2014 in Property

An eight-space car park in Mayfair has gone on the market for £2.25 million. That’s more than £250,000 PER PARKING SPACE. Excuse me for a moment while I have a manic-cry, I’ve been ‘driven’ to despair.

The parking area (the red-floored bit in the photo)  is thought to be the most expensive ever to go on the market in London, and is the only parking space in Britain that could be liable for mansion tax. In fact, the Evening Standard reports that you could buy a 16th century Scottish castle for the same price.

Looking to splash out? Handily, you’ll get a 900-year lease for your money so you’ll still be able to park your spaceship there in 3004. BUT you are going to have to pay extra ground rent and service charge.


Ashley Coleman, head of agents Carter Jonas Mayfair, said: ‘Collective parking space in Mayfair is a rare commodity and this opportunity to purchase a forecourt of eight is most unique. I believe it is very likely to appeal to a wealthy resident looking for a good home for their luxury fleet of vehicles.’
