A small 1960s garage located in an exclusive Newcastle enclave has hit the market for an eye-watering £1.2million.

But while the staggering price may shock potential buyers, there’s more to the property than meets the eye – with a full-size tennis court sitting in the garage’s back garden.

The pebble-dashed garage and hidden tennis court is located on a 760 square meter plot nestled between sprawling properties in the posh suburb of Gosforth, three miles from Newcastle city centre.

And despite its £1.2million price tag, the plot of land is still cheaper than the average property in the area – which comes in at a whopping £1,623,000.
