Cornish 'cottage' Shocker!

Recommended Posts

People in the rest of the country don't seem to realise quite how bad things are down here. This house is in Penzance:

It's on a main road with a 6 story block of flats opposite. Check out the original features like traditional 80s gas fire!!

Bear in mind wages are around about 25% lower than the UK average down here. I don't even think the EAs would have suggested that price!

I used to live on the coast of Pembrokeshire - SW Wales - Little England Beyond Wales (settled by large numbers of English people and Flemings in the Middle Ages and has remained very English ever since - no Welsh speakers in the S of the county, very British attitudes, etc.).

In the part of M Pembrokeshire I lived in, the Meibion Glyndwr (Sons of Glendower) holiday cottage burnings depressed house prices up until the mid 90s - I remember one house was burned, renovated and then burned again in the 80s - since then things have turned into a sick joke. Terrible salaries, astronomical house prices, etc.

Pembrokeshire sounds very similar to Cornwall.

I think I know this street. If it is where I think it is, the "2 double bedrooms" are hardly that. You might just squeeze a small bed in the second bedroom but there'd be barely any space left to walk into the room.

This kind of house went for 60-70k just a few years ago, if that.

See above link,! Its bad "up North" too.!!!. This is in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

All complete madness..........

If that was where I live in London, I'd bite their arm off. Asking price would be £400k+ down here. Bear in mind that London salaries are not 2-3 times the national average...

This is starting to sound like a Monty Python sketch. Soon living in a hole in the road will cost a few hundred grand. Actually, that would solve the "housing crisis" without affecting the greenbelt - subterranean cities under the roads of the uk. Who needs windows?

I used to live around the corner, not far off Bilton road (Hill top drive). Can't say I think much of the Photo's. They're not even labled correctly.

This isn't far from that house and is much larger (kitchen needs redoing though) and is only £5k more.

Like StF, if that were in Greenwich I'd at least view it, maybe. We need Cornish prices in London! You can have London prices in Cornwall if you like - sounds like a fair deal to me... <_<

I also used to live in a 1930's semi on the other side of the road from these...

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/viewdetails-695...pa_n=4&tr_t=buy

Lived there approx 11 years ago and price has gone up about £100k in that time. Not much, but then Harrogate was on southern prices anyway.

Seems around £100k is the average increase apart from bigger houses!!.

I bought a flat in Harrogate in 93 for £38k, a similar one has just sold for £140k.!

Now STR.!!

With the introduction of SIPPs I think things are likely to become relativly worse in desirable 2nd home areas like Penzance as a well heeled investor will get 40% off the price if buying through his SIPP - A disgrace and I'm amazed it's getting through parliment, though I'm sure many MPs will be taking advantage of this tax break for the wealthy!
