伦敦房价畸高 7平米半地下室叫价33.5万美元Tiny London apartment on sale for $335K

本文属阅读资料

  Almost anywhere else, the tiny dilapidated studio wouldn't attract much more than mice. But this is London and the 77-square-foot former storage room — slightly bigger than a prison cell and without electricity — is going for $335,000.

  这间面积77平方英尺(约合7.08平方米)的房曾是一间仓库。若在世界上其它地方,恐怕只有老鼠对它感兴趣,但就是这样一间没有电、没有暖气、只比牢房稍大的房却可以叫价33.5万美元,因为它地处世界上房价最贵的英国伦敦。

  The closet-sized space in the exclusive Knightsbridge neighborhood may be only "about the size of a ship's galley, said real estate agent Andrew Scott, who's handling the sale. "But it's permanently anchored to one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the world."

  At more than $4,340 a square foot, the mortgage buys a spot within walking distance of tony stores like Harrods and London's iconic Hyde Park. Originally conceived as a maid's room, the apartment at 18 Cadogan Place hasn't been used for years and is littered with trash bags and crumbling paint.

  据美联社1月22日报道,负责此房交易的房地产经济人斯科特介绍说,这间地处伦敦黄金地段骑士桥的半地下室只有船上厨房般大小,“但是它位于全世界最值钱的一个地方”。目前,伦敦奢华百货公司哈罗斯和伦敦标志性地点海德公园周边的房价已经超过每平方英尺(1平方英尺约合0.09平方米)4340美元。

  正在出售的这间半地下室于伦敦Cadogan王宫街18号,它曾经可能是一间女仆的住房,后来一直被荒废,时而堆放些垃圾袋或是工具等。

  A coffin-sized shower is en suite, and storage is provided by a shallow closet and 10-inch-deep shelves cut into the wall. Two hot plates and a small sink make up the kitchen. Two dirty windows allow light to filter into the basement room, and the fire escape could conceivably double as a shared patio.

  房间里的卫生间只有棺材大小,储藏室为襄在墙上的一个小壁橱和几排25厘米深的货架,两只电炉和一个狭小的下水洞构成了厨房,脏兮兮的两扇窗户让阳光照进房间,此外,屋内还有一把防火梯。

  With no electricity or heating, Scott said it would cost an additional $59,000 to make the room habitable. "It is an investment," he said, as he stretched his arms the width of the room, laying his palms flat on opposite sides of the wall.

  房间里没有电源和暖气源,房地产经济人斯科特说,要使这间房能够住人,还需买主支付5.9万美元的房屋改造费。他表示:“买下这房其实是一笔投资。”斯科特伸开双臂衡量房间的宽度,他的两只手轻易就能触到两边的墙壁。

  The sale of this dark, mildewy room illustrates the astronomical rise in property values across London, which in the past year has seen average residential property prices increase 22.4 percent, to about $703,000, according to figures released Monday by Rightmove, which tracks the British property market.

  Prices in London's most desirable neighborhoods have grown even faster, with average house prices in the borough of Kensington and Chelsea — where Cadogan Place is located — rising 61.8 percent over the past year to a jaw-dropping $2.2 million.

  这间阴暗小破屋以天价叫卖的事实折射出了伦敦房价的畸形高涨。英国22日公布的房地产市场报告显示,伦敦房价在过去几年上涨了22.4%,一套普通住房的售价大约为70.3万美元。而伦敦黄金地段的房价更是呈现出空前的上涨趋势,肯辛通(Kensington)和切尔西(Cadogan宫所在地)区域的房价上涨了61.8%,一套普通住房的卖价达到了让人目瞪口呆的220万美元。

  Ultra high-end property prices in London are the most expensive in the world, with some recent sales hitting $5,900 per square foot — making the Cadogan Place studio a bargain by comparison, according to research published last year by CB Richard Ellis Group Inc. Similar properties in New York can go for about $5,300 per square foot, while those in Hong Kong sell at around $3,950 per square foot.

  过激上涨的房价让伦敦成为世界上房子最贵的地方。一些地方的新近房价竟然达到了每平英尺5900美元的天价,这似乎让Cadogan王宫街的这间破旧仓库的卖价也不足为奇了。房地产专家指出,像地处Cadogan王宫街这样黄金地段的房子,在美国为每平方英尺5300美元,而香港为每平方英尺3950美元。

  Scott said he already had three offers on the property, which might go to auction. Size, he added, is in the "eye of the beholder." "If you thought of this as the cabin on a boat, you'd say, 'It's pretty spacious,' " Scott said.

  斯科特表示,目前已有3位客户看好这间房,房子最后有可能被拍卖。针对这面积的房,这位房地产经济人有一套说服买房者的理论:“面积是在买主的心里。如果你把它看成是船舱,你一定会觉得它很大了。”
