Offered with no onward chain, this sizeable home is in need of some cosmetic updating, allowing you opportunity to put your own personal stamp on it!


Just. Look....

Shame you can't put your own personal stamp on the Streetview.
Tell me all about it and start at the end.

An overpriced one bed flat opposite a pub in Peckham.

Flat 2, 62 Choumert Road sold for £197,000 in 2011. Same place? Zoopla estimates value at £244k. Estate agent values at £100k more. Nice bit of kite flying.

As the snow flies....
On a cold and grey Brixton morning
Some scumbag shiny suited c**nt of an estate agent is pricing this council house dump up at double 2006 price
In the ghetto....

http://www.zoopla.co...etails/31655313

2006: £205k, 2014: £435k

Same agent as the Peckham sh*te above, same f*ckwitted style of blurb too.

One sold last year for £250k

http://www.rightmove...country=england

Which orifice did they pluck this price out of? And which surveyor would approve such a ludicrous valuation?

Looks like a lovely place:

http://www.brixtonbl...is-morning/4706

"A man has been charged with attempted murder today after a woman was stabbed at a home in the Blenheim Gardens Estate.

Doctors with the London Air Ambulance treated a 20-year old woman for a “number of stab wounds” after an incident in Ramilles Close, Brixton Hill, at about 9.15am yesterday."

http://www.urban75.n...gardens.223843/

Here's the estate's 'Good Neighbour Agreement', which identifies no less than sixteen separate anti-social behaviour hotspots.

http://www.bgrmo.org...d_agreement.pdf

I can't even imagine what kind of brain damage you would have to be afflicted with to think that £435,000 to live actually within this crime and disorder in the same houses as these people is sensible. Biggest muggers in the area are the state agents.

"Results of the crime and ASB Perception survey:
440 surveys were distributed and 38 were returned.
The main issues listed by residents were:
• Noise
• Gatherings of groups,
• Nuisance from scooters
• People using drugs or alcohol and/or drug dealing
• Sex workers.
Other specific concerns included ball games use by children, dog mess and littering
and fly-tipping."

"An attendee expressed concerns of regarding the refuse waste in Ramilles Close.
The attendee circulated 3 photographs. The photographs were not dated, except
with the hand written date. The photo graphs were of the bin chambers in Ramilles
Close which were overflowing with rubbish on Monday 3rd June."

"The true investment need for the estate over the next 30 years is in the region of
£25 to £30 million pounds and this is unlikely to be affordable by the Council but will
enable residents to decide on their own future of the estate."

Ye Gods that is pricey. :blink: At what price will viewers and buyers suddently exclaim: 'enough!' at the ridiculous asking prices - especially for mundane looking houses? :unsure:

A similar style ex council house in my city could be had for £300k less:
3 bedroomed 1960s townhouse in Norwich

At offers over £130k, it is overpriced. Homes for sale on this estate take a while to sell. The buyer will be lucky to get an offer of £125k for it imo.

6.71% yield is reasonable in the current climate. ;)

Goodness, that new layout looks rubbish. I take it that the new bedrooms are now where the good sized sitting room once was. I'd rather have a decent one bedroomed flat than one with 2 poor sized ones. The double bed only fits so long as one side is against the wall!

Also. if that floorplan is correct the developer could have extended that new end bedroom along the full with of the flat. It now has an underused bit of corridor. :rolleyes:

£385k for a house that could have been used in filming of 'The Young Ones'. :blink:

980s timewarp inside. Well - 1990s in picture 6 with that desktop PC. :lol:

A modernised house of this size on this road would go for around a similar price. This one will need some cash spending on it. As it's an end-terrace, It could be calved up into 3 flats that would command asking prices upwards of £140k. :blink:
