It is understood that the one-bed property is being sold by the owners of the semi-detached house and corner garden site on which the cabin stands.
The agents says no planning permission was required to erect the cabin, which is connected to the mains sewage system. Legally, McDermott says, the vendors are selling a garden site that happens to have a log cabin on it. Once it is sold the title folio on the property will be legally divided.
