Mystery surrounds who bought the public toilets in Bexleyheath and Bexley village from Bexley council.
The toilets in Townley Road, Bexleyheath, which have an attached sub station were auctioned on Sunday for £239,000, well above the guide price of £175,000.
On the same day, the public toilet in Bexley High Street, sold for £39,000, again above the guide price of up to £7,000, at The Clive Emson Conference Centre, Kent Country Showground, Maidstone.
But a spokesman for the council refused to reveal who the buyers are, adding they can only do so once the sale is completed, which is expected to be in a month’s time.
Auctioneer Kevin Gilbert, said: “The bidding for both lots was fast and furious, with both exceeding the guide price by substantial margins.
“These kinds of buildings do have development potential, subject to all the necessary consents being obtainable, although we are not privy to any plans for either of the sites.”
