My posh neighbour forked out £77k to replace our shared fence but we can’t work out why – it’s a total waste of cash | The Sun

A WOMAN has told how her neighbour kindly offered to pay £77k to replace their shared fence – but she was left very unimpressed with the finished results.

Maggie McGaugh explained that while some people split the cost of their shared garden fence, her "wealthy" neighbour offered to pay for the "entire thing" himself – despite it costing over £77k.

However, she was left disappointed that the finished fence was completely "see through," meaning there was no privacy in her garden.

In a clip shared to TikTok (@maggiemcgaugh), she explains: "We were thinking if you're spending that much money on a fence it must be phenomenal."

Maggie then goes on to show off the fence which runs the whole way around the exterior of the land.

"Personally, if I were dropping more than £7.7k on a fence, which is pretty much what everyone has to spend as a minimum on a fence nowadays, I'd want to not be able to see through it," she says.

"But he chose to spend this much money on a fence and still be able to see through it.

"He did concrete on the bottom, then brick, then this iron bar."


She continues: "Obviously we're very grateful that he offered to pay for the entire thing.

"I still don't understand how this is £77k but I didn't pay it – not my business.
