The Delusion Continues

£720k for a two bed flat that looks like the illegitmate lovechild of Yates's Wine Lodge and a lap-dancing club.

It gets better, it's in Gosport :lol:

I would estimate a 2 bed flat costs no more than £60k to construct.

I'm not sure what they paid for the land, but based on the logic that:

a =c + l + s

where

a= asking price

c= construction price

l = land price

s= swing price

I'm guessing that 's' must be around £400k.

Couldn`t have put it better myself - obviously whoever `designed` it didn`t realise that `bling` is so last year....Does it come with a selection of horny sluts or do I have to pay extra for it?!

Certainly hope as there`s no way I`m going to pay £720,000 for that. <_<

:lol:

It`s across the water from Portsmouth, which is just enough to make you want to convert the swing into a gallows so you can top yourself `in style` :blink:

What a fu<king shi1thole and what a ridiculous - no, criminal - price! It`s probably being used as some kind of brothel and the price estimate has taken into account the `on the side` earnings the place has made for its owner.

Swing was probably a chandelier at some point! :rolleyes:

As a "scummer" I would pay £720K not to have to look at Portsmouth! ;)

I live in Portsmouth and I have to agree with you "scummer" or not! I just wish I could raise the money to get out of here. Man it`s the closest thing I`ve seen to a ghetto outside South Central - "all kinds of `mo`fo crazy shit going on here..."

Portsmouth and Gosport are AWFUL - would be interesting to search this on the environment agency map - isn't the whole of this area going to be under water soon ?

For anyone that has never heard of the Environment Agency Flood Map it is a useful tool to use before buying a property, much of Portsmouth has increased insurance premiums because of the increased risk of flooding.

I reckon most of Portsea Island (where Portskank is situated), is going to go sub-surface and the new coastline will have waves lapping at Portsdown hill.

There were no construction costs involved - it's a warehouse conversion.

Clarence Yard (or Royal Clarence Marina as the marketing wonk would have you call it) was a naval victualling depot. Ships' biscuits were made and stored on this site for use by the navy. It became surplus to requirements in the late 1980's.

Once all the jobs were gone this was what became of it. I suspect the same crew who did for London's docks were responsible for it.

£720k for a 2 bedroom flat is cloud cuckoo land.

This site has an interactive map showing the strategic flood risk to the area:

http://push.atkinsgeospatial.com/Default.aspx

Click on 'flood zones undefended' to watch what happens...

My guess is that this is a population of about 250,000 who would be immediately affected - it's not simply the water it's the breakdown in services - gas, water, electricity, food etc. Once the population emigrates out of the coastal areas it would then put strain on the surrounding districts too.

Just drilled down and the prognosis for 2025 does not look good at all (and that`s assuming sea levels will rise at their porjected rate, not allowing for new data). Gunwharf Quays looks like it`s going to be underwater - so much for `professional designer lifestyle living` then :lol: Southsea looks like it`s going to get kinda damp too!

Oh well...later to Portsmouth then :rolleyes:;)

Portsmouth is not sh*t.

"Telly Savalas Looks at Portsmouth"

:lol::lol::lol:

I didn't say Portsmouth was shit. I said Gosport was shit. As a scummer, married to a gorgeous woman from Portsmouth, I am slightly concerned / hate to admit that within 5 weeks that I will be living there! (Albeit temporarily) :ph34r::ph34r::ph34r:

Bits of it are wonderful. Bits aren't. Fortunately I will be in one of the wonderful bits ;)

Another misplaced Essex house. They'd love it round my way, especially if it had an extra large parking space for the RR Sport.

Since Gosport is at the end of a thinnish strip of land with one road on and off, the local car park is the A32. YOu are allowed to park on it for free for over an hour every time you want to go anywhere by car. ;)
