  1. Yep, i wouldn't pay over stamp duty threshold and probably not 250. Think I could live there happily but the area feels very transient ( flats opposite) with lots of rental properties around there. I wonder if i sold after 10 years if it would have kept up with market prices. Yeah, viewed one on Princes road months ago, almost identical but worse street than Devonshire.
  2. Have been looking around lock road, place road, Lawrence road at some of the houses like this: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-46192595.html not such great family homes I can imagine but for the price and proximity to Altrincham cofe primary, john Leigh park etc it may be the best you can get for 200 - 220k. What are the forums views on these houses....little outdoor space or off road parking but 3 beds and some have 2 bathrooms. The streets and houses themselves do have a bit of character as well.
  3. Looking at this one in Timperley. Been on the market for a while. Floorplan is unusual. They extended to create an open plan living area next to the kitchen. Looks odd with the old external window looking through into the lounge. Also, do you think have the toilet more or less in the dining room is a big no no for buyers....wonder why they didn't extend to the side of the house (although it is a bit narrow). That would be how most people would extend a traditional semi I guess. http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-39641203.html
  4. Notice this one has been on the market for a while: http://www.primelocation.com/for-sale/details/30133205 Looks reasonably well done out inside and a nice garden. Guess the street itself and relative size hold it back?
  5. Yep, looks like they got it done on the cheap. This sort of screw up brings the house down to my potential price range though on a street I would be otherwise unable to afford. I don't mean the asking price but the likelihood of having a much lower offer accepted. Incidentally - would you be able to simply take the roof off and put a pitched roof on or would the wall be unlikely to hold a 'proper' roof therefore meaning knocking the whole extension down and rebuilding?
  6. Wonder what the forum view is on these two? The Devonshire road one looks like a good sized terraced - rented out apparently but the street feels more Broadheath than Altrincham. The second one is on Lansdowne Road which has a much nicer feel but been on the market for about a year....not sure why http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-40741852.html http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-24444954.html
  7. Hi, I am in the situation where I really want to be within walking distance of Altrincham CofE school. This means that with my budget of 225k I am restricted to the 'crappier parts' of Alty:-). So looking around Harcourt Road, Gladstone Road, Devonshire Road area for a 3 bed house. What do you reckon about this area. Thinking in the future I may move abroad and would be looking for somewhere to rent out. Would this area be a nightmare to let a 3 bed house? Same question for price increase - always going to struggle to increase in price? Also looked at Oldfield Brow around St Marks avenue but
  8. Can I ask what you think of this one? http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-37790762.html?backListLink=%2Fproperty-for-sale%2Fmap.html%3FlocationIdentifier%3DUSERDEFINEDAREA%5E%7B%22id%22%3A918833%7D%23_includeSSTC%3Don%26auction%3Dfalse%26includeSSTC%3Dtrue%26locationIdentifier%3DUSERDEFINEDAREA%255E%257B%2522id%2522%253A918833%257D%26maxPrice%3D230000%26minBedrooms%3D3%26minPrice%3D210000%26previousSearchLocation%3DUntitled%2520(Drawn%2520Area)%26radius%3D0.0%26searchLocation%3DUntitled%2520(Drawn%2520Area)%26searchType%3DSALE%26useLocationIdentifier%3Dfalse%26box%3D-2.35893
