Everybody recognises what they look like, the brightly coloured huts that stand in rows on beaches up and down the country.
Beach huts are generally used for shelter or changing facilities, however a development company in Torquay is changing the game and are currently producing six to value of £2.2m!

So, why are they worth £2.2m? This image of the interior right provides a good clue.
The luxurious beach huts are being built at Torquay’s upmarket Cary Arms and are part of the de Savary family’s £4.5m development plans for the boutique hotel which includes new suites and a spa.
It’s often that beach huts get valued, however when completed it’s expected that they will be the most expensive in Britain, offering guests some of the best sea views in the land. Downstairs will feature a large lounge area which leads out on to a decked area under a canopy.
The beach huts in Mudeford, which are being positioned as chalets, lack the everyday living essentials that one would need, but it’s their position on a remote sandbank which is said to be its unique selling point.
The eight chalets are set to be sold for a combined £1.6 million, which makes them the most expensive in the UK.
The 15ft by 15ft wooden cabins are located on a remote sandbank in Dorset.
