For such privacy in a pleasant backwater of Britain, you would expect this private island to fetch ten times the amount. What it says, in our modern plug-it-in world, we place more value on the accoutrements of stress and less value on the joys of stress-free living. See you at the auction?
This property together with a modest dwelling is up for auction on 27th September. Now you would imagine that lots of people will be bidding for it at a snip price of £190,000. However what will put others off:
– no road to it. River access only.
– no electricity
– no gas
This implies no TV and internet too. Wow. It increasingly sounds like a bargain. The most interesting aspect is the price.
