A DETACHED garage is for sale on the Sandbanks peninsula which presents “one of the most unique opportunities ever seen”.

Lloyds property group have marketed the plot in Banks Road in Sandbanks.

There is no asking price on the garage and the property group instead wants to invite bids.

It provides an opportunity to develop the land into a dwelling or commercial property, subject to planning permission, which could increase its value to nearly £1million.

Scott Taylor, of Lloyds property group, said: “It is approximately 600 square ft, it sits on a plot about 0.09 acres.

“It is the only plot left on the peninsula untouched, it has not been redeveloped.

“You have parking for at least four cars at the front and a back garden, it creates a unique opportunity.

“It is just that opportunity to have a Banks Road address for relatively little money compared to the surrounding apartments.”

The average price of a property on Sandbanks is £1,239,904, up almost £60,000 during the past year, according to property website Zoopla.

Therefore, if this site is fully developed, the owners could be netting a very handsome profit.

Mr Taylor suggested a townhouse-styled property could be built, if planning permission was approved, similar to two houses built by Eddie Mitchell which were worth in the region of £900,000.

He continued: “When the advert first launched on Rightmove it got 1,600 views in the first two days.

“It is not something you are ever likely to see again.

“We have not put a price on it, the £400,000 banding is set by Rightmove, we do not have a price, it is sale by tender and we are welcoming offers.

“It is all subject to planning permission, you are buying a garage, is has the potential to be something.”

Anyone interested should submit offers in writing to the selling agent by Friday, March 5.

And the buyer could become part of illustrious company on the exclusive peninsula.

In late 2020, one Sandbanks home was on the market for a record £11million.

Harry Redknapp’s old waterfront mansion was put on the market five years after the former AFC Bournemouth manager sold it for £6.9million.

Research also revealed that to buy one four-bedroom house with its own helicopter landing facility in Panorama Road, one would need a minimum salary of £297,540 per year.

The property, with its own automated lifts, also has a private jetty and an outdoor swimming pool.
