love this one: 550k for a proper sh*t hole

The toilet's so stunning it merited TWO photographs. Just love the blue plastic toilet brush. Worth 550K at least; or 1.99 from your local Poundsaver store.

What a load of cr*p.

This isn't really a home (although we've seen recently how people have started to convert garages into spare rooms...). However, I had been down to Swiss Cottage at the weekend to see a film at the IMAX so we parked in one of the nearby residential roads. Very nice area, was wondering what we could afford for the budget we've got right now.

Well, this is all that appeared in the area we looked for parking...

What kind of car you'd want to be storing for that price, I don't know, but nothing is worth paying that much to store, surely.

A not especially overpriced http://www.rightmove...-22457877.html'>house for the location at 120k but.... When is a small 2nd bedroom not really a bedroom at all?

You're clearly not an estate agent. That's a double bedroom*.

I love how the width of the room seems to have been determined by width of a pre-existing radiator! :lol:

The last couple of pages have thrown up some absolute classics. Truly, London must be the most ridiculous City on Earth and will eat itself.

I rushed here after finding a joke of a house but now feel almost pedantic for posting this (From the Regional Bristol thread):

In the back of beyond, miles from central Bristol, you get a pool in the Kitchen, an out building at the end of a sweeping drive, gym in the bedroom, bars on the bed and the word dream pasted to the bedroom wall. Dream? It's a F+%*&ng nightmare. Offers in excess of Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand English Pounds please kind Sir. Surely a contender for overpriced shithole 2012. Oh God, just checked the history, they originally wanted 369,950. I need a lie down.
