In yet another crazy twist to the ongoing London property price saga, a shabby-looking garage has come on the market for £50,000 - nearly £20,000 more than an idyllic two-bed cottage in northern France.

According to the estate agent, the garage near Wandsworth Common is "good-sized" and offers "secure parking or fantastic storage space".

Meanwhile, the rustic cottage in Brittany is on the market for €40,000, around £31,000.

The agent describes the dwelling as "the perfect holiday hide-away or bijou residence" (that's the cottage, not the garage).

Set in the village of Saint-Congrad, the home is surrounded by a network of designated footpaths and cycle routes "traversing some of the most beautiful countryside in northern France".

Boating and canoeing is permissible on the nearby River Oust and there are many "historic and pre-historic places of interest to visit nearby".

Back in south London, the Earlsfield garage has Battersea power station for a neighbour and is within a stone's throw of the popular A214.

Guy Hibbert, managing director of FrenchEntrée, the agents marketing the French cottage, said: “Many Londoners will find the prospect of a fully functioning home in one of the most beautiful places in France costing less than a permanent place to park their car in the capital a bit hard to swallow.”
