Garage with flat above on the market in Edinburgh's West End could be the answer to parking nightmares

If you’re sick of shelling out hundreds of pounds each month to pay for parking and checking your watch every few minutes in a bid to outsmart the traffic wardens, there could be another solution.

Buy your own private parking space or lock-up.

With parking charges in the Scottish capital’s most expensive districts costing nearly £50 for a full day, the bill for driving to work can be eye-watering.

Now a secure garage has come up for sale in one of the Scottish capital’s most upmarket areas, where on-street parking will set you back £3.70 an hour.

It’s part of a mews property that would make an ideal pied-à-terre for anyone working in the city centre during the week but living elsewhere.

Tucked away in a lane in the heart of Edinburgh’s West End, the garage has space for two cars and has its own power supply – suitable for recharging electric vehicles.

It is on the market with Savills at offers over £100,000 and can be bought in a deal with the upstairs flat, which is priced at offers over £250,00.

The apartment, which has recently been refurbished, has its own front door with stairs leading to the the first floor.

The accommodation comprises one double bedroom, an open-plan kitchen and living space and a shower room.

Potential buyers should note that the garage will not be sold separately until the sale of the apartment has been finalised.
