Telephone box in middle of busy road hits the market for £15,000 – but there's a catch

The telephone kiosk is located in Stamford Hill, Hackney in London and includes the traditional red design.

The telephone box is Grade II-listed and has the potential to be used for a variety of uses subject to obtaining all the relevant consents.

The property has planning permission for retail use and also has mains electricity.

The new owner would not only have a unique property to add to their portfolio but would own a piece of British history.

However, the telephone kiosk comes with a slight catch. The person who buys the telephone kiosk can resell it at any time, however, because it is a heritage site, it cannot be removed and the exterior cannot be altered.

The telephone box is therefore registered as a listed building at Historic England.

Red telephone boxes, also known as telephone kiosks, are a British cultural icon and can be found all over the UK.

This particular kiosk is located on a residential road close to local shops and amenities.

Springfield Park, which is known for its recreation ground and Green Flag status, is just down the road.

There are also good transport links to central London with Seven Sisters providing underground, overground and national rail services.

Over the years, telephone boxes have been transformed into defibrillator units and libraries as well as mini art galleries, museums and coffee kiosks.

Anyone interested in viewing or finding out more about the telephone box should contact Auction House London on 020 7625 9007.
