I’ve been asked to represent some odd stories in my time but this one really takes the sauerkraut. A man has claimed that his dead parents’ home in Whitton has Nazi treasure buried under a pond in the garden. The man in question, Michael Hurll, a light entertainment producer, told estate agents Anish Gola and Alan Woods about the loot under the pond in his parent’s house on Montrose Avenue, a 1930’s semi, once owned by the German Embassy. The plot thickened as Hurll informed the agents that after his parents bought the house in 1945, random Germans kept offering to buy the property from them. At an initial viewing of the property, Mr Hurll’s parents Fred and Elsie saw a gold plated bust of Adolf Hitler on the sideboard along with a gold and sliver plate. When they returned some weeks later for another viewing the items were gone and a reinforced D Shaped pond had been built in the garden. Mr Hurll claimed his parents always maintained that Nazi memorabilia was buried under the pond and he himself had tried to dig it up some years ago but was unable to drill through the 15 inches of concrete. Alan Jones, Sales Manager at Your Move said, normally houses like this would go in a couple of weeks, but due to the credit crunch, the house on Montrose Avenue is languishing. But they are hoping the Nazi angle will drum up business.
