You Know The Place Isn't Up To Much When...

Recommended Posts

Only a knob would buy it! It shows how poor we have become when people are expected to want to live in the corner of an old pub. Perhaps they would like to send their kids to the Wellington School! Arguably better value.

Whenyou at how some period homes have all ended up as small flats you have to wonder why anyone thinks we are wealthier in property terms atall. When you see a small terrace built as a 'fishermans cottage' on the deeds, is now a London commuters £400k home near the station, you know it has all gone wrong.

Who cares what it looks like anyway. It's not for living in, well not by the purchaser. Is BTL ruining your neighbour hood?

Well I can confirm that Wellington School is excellent value.

Oh, and I bet they don't tell prospective purchasers about the small matter of a murder in there:

Seems to me that any empty building in the UK in the past decade has been converted to flats.

No contempary luxury apartments, please give these places their proper title.

... great effort having been made to retain much of the building’s original character...
ie they have left the pub sign on the front.

"This superb former inn has been cleverly converted into 11 one and two bedroom apartments, great effort having been made to retain much of the building’s original character."

I often find the best way to retain the character of an old building is to convert it into at least 10 flats.

Especially when said coffee shop is 10 miles away.

Ah but think about all that fresh air you when you walk there. A real selling point.

On the same note what relevance does wellington school have to a one bedroom flat? Does little timmy get his own "luxury" apartment with bosch appliances these days?

Not a lot. Poor Timmy was never born. :(

The only interior shot.

It must be a total hole.

No it's just tiny.

They probably couldn't get far enough back to take a picture of more of the room

What has the Duke of Wellinton and Napoleon got to do with buying a flat ? They missed three other interesting facts about Wellington:

- It had the last bank in England to print its own banknotes (Fox's Bank, now a branch of Lloyds)

- Khaki cloth was invented in Wellington

- The aerosol was invented in Wellington.

Anyone still awake out there?
