OR POSSIBLY a nightmare . . . The former magistrates court, at 82-90 Stoke Newington Road, London N16, would suit a family with particularly difficult children. The moment the latter go too far, their parents can choose which of the 11 cells, all with thick steel doors, to lock them in. Apart from the cells, the solid red-brick building includes Court Room No 1 (34ft x 24ft), the jailers' room, matron's room, the warrant office, numerous ladies and gents' lavatories and a number of other rooms. The building is being sold at auction by Allsop & Co (071-437 6977) on Monday 13 December at the Mayfair Inter-Continental hotel. The guide price is pounds 150,000.
