Hampstead Heath lavatory is up for sale or rent, with the owner hoping the bottom doesn't fall out of the market.
A toilet in the posh London surburb of Highgate has been put up for rent at £3,000 a month. The owner, builder James Atherton is looking to rent or sell the unusual piece of real estate - a stand alone loo he owns inside a block of flats at the bottom of Highgate West Hill.
It is by a bus turnaround point and next to the bottom of Hampstead Heath. The facility is being promoted with a sign on the wall offering a "toilet space", hoping to catch the attention of bus drivers who need stop to relieve themselves at Parliament Hill Fields.
Mr Atherton also predicted a surge in interest if Camden Council follows through with its controversial plans to close the public toilets in Pond Square in Highgate village and the Victorian toilets at the entrance to Hampstead Heath were demolished in the 1990s.
Mr Atherton's toilet has been left unused for many years but is in good condition, according to the vendor, and could also double-up as a storage room.
It is up for rent at an asking price of £3,000 a month but Mr Atherton said he would also consider selling a 20-year lease for £20,000.- mirror
