Neighbours Are Laughing Over House With Telegraph Pole In Driveway
When you're looking for a property, one enquiry that some people with vehicles might specify is whether there is any suitable parking available. Imagine scrolling through the features of this two-storey property in the West Midlands to find that it has a secure garage.
The property was on the market for £370,000 ($499,355) in Walsall, which isn't too bad for a five bedroom place. But it's only when you go for an inspection that you find the parking arrangement slightly peculiar.
These three properties are identical in virtually every aspect, except for the fact that there's a huge telegraph pole in the middle of the third house's driveway. Sure, if the occupants have bicycles or a motorbike then it's fine, but you'd be lucky to be able to squeeze a Smart car through either side of the gap.
The developers have also, somehow, managed to forget to drop the kerb.
Neighbours say the properties were finished in December last year and there have only been a few viewings since. It's not hard to see why. One person has told the Daily Mail: "I have seen security personnel going round to check on the property. They've tried to park on the drive but no matter how hard they tried, they could not fit the car on.
"It was funny watching them give it a go.
"It's just hysterical. It's like something out of Fawlty Towers. It's not very well thought out at all."

The neighbour adds that the driveways were supposed to be gardens, which is why the kerb wasn't finished off and the telegraph pole was allowed to stay.
Another local says "To me this is ridiculous. Whoever planned that? It's going downhill so they should have staggered it, but they're all on the same level. It means the drives are incredibly steep. If there is a little bit of ice in winter there's no way you'll get a car up there.
"We're not happy about it."
A spokesperson for Acorns Estate Agent has told the Birmingham Mail that the pole will be removed next week and the curb would be dropped so that cars wouldn't have to mount it every time they needed to park.
An employee with the company has informed LADbible that the property has since been sold.
While this piece of construction seems a bit strange, there have been a few people all across the UK that have had trouble with pesky telegraph poles or electricity boxes obscuring part of their driveway.
