A new home has gone on sale in Brighton for just £35,000, but with one major catch – the converted storage container does not come with a plot of land to put it on.
The unit was used as a site office by Find and Build, a property search agency based in the North Laine, having originally been built as part of the New House for London project and exhibited at the London Design Festival.
Brighton estate agents Oakley have now been instructed to find it a new home – but warn that new owners will need a site to put it, and the correct planning permission.
Oakley’s residential director James Epps said: “Naturally it does not come with land on which to place it. So realistically it is likely to be someone who wants it for an office or games room, garden room, teenagers den or annexe etc in their garden.”
Designed by multi award winning Carl Turner Architects, the house is made from two shipping containers, steel and timber.
One container is designed to be a sleep/work space and the other is a kitchen/living area unit. Across the top of the two containers is a terrace with space for a vegetable patch and built-in seating.
It does not have plumbing services and appliances, insulation and mains electricity services and has been partially dismantled for transportation, although the sale includes a comprehensive handover document detailing how to put it back together.
