Describing this house as "Stunning" is a little effusive even by Miller and Sons high standards.......incredibly the price has dropped to its current bargain of 350k.....insane!

I have to applaud you for digging up a truly horrible house. Those sorts of Hayle houses were always rubbish and just because the vendors has spent a load in Wicks doesn't change things.

Really, most of Cornwall must be on drugs. The prices for utter crap are beyond deluded. £350k for that house falls into the drug induced valuation method.

Yes, Cornwall has some unbelievably stunning parts and some of the houses in those, very limited parts, are very valuable and always have been. But there is no trickle down effect to the rest of Cornwall. I'm more certain than ever that Cornish house prices are in for a major adjustment and it's going to be ugly. When I lived there, most people I knew seemed to live off MEW plus a state salary.

There is no way that average houses should be the same price in Cornwall as average house in the SE, despite the Saturday Telegraph running endless articles on Cornwall. Just for a comparison ( and it's not everyone's cup of tea), here is a house, outside of Banbury. Not a bad area. Close to a train station and a pretty easy access to jobs, airports, etc. And I could have picked any number of similar houses scattered across England.

WTF is it with Hayle? It's like St Ives prices but instead of picture postcard / artistic heritage, you get wierd / ugly / post-industrial. That and it's depressingly poor.

That other place on the Land's End road is a bit pricey too. You can get much better places a few miles away in St Just for less money which aren't on the road and are within walking distance of civilisation. Eejits!

Oh, give me strength. I made the mistake of looking at Miller's photos of the place.

The back yard has room for a picnic table and this .... "extremely useful ancillary accommodation". It must be the drugs.

Heres another "Simply stunning" architect designed pwoperty......? For some reason the agents Pure Cornwall decided not to publish a picture of the front of the building.

Despite the "careful marriage between old and new" zzzzzz it probably gets about 3 hours of afternoon sun in high summer, (on those few rare days it shines) .......does the sewage still float down the river???

Seem to recall this was originally listed at 1.4 million. Surely has to be one of the biggest reductions ever seen in PZ?

http://www.rightmove...y-35659106.html

Pretty sure it went on at the 1 million mark. Still a hefty reduction.

This one started at a hilarious £1.5 million though - http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-33709936.html

Couldn't really say what prices are doing in general. It seems at around the £500k mark nothing is selling despite some hefty reductions. Mind you there is very little worth buying irrespective of price.

That looks OK value to me in comparison with many of the overpriced horrors that have been posted on this thread.

I guess the listing isn't great, you can never make that garden any more private.

It seems OK value. I know the place quite well and imagine it would need a fair bit of work doing on it though. The garden is pretty much walled and is fairly private. Also it is a kind of 'landmark house' which can be seen from half the town - views are the converse I imagine. That makes £625k look pretty cheap compared to some of the rubbish 1930s bungalows with worse views on for £450k

My guess is it will go to auction if it doesn't sell soon. The 40% price drop suggests some growing desperation.

Load of old! The only group this kind/location of property has the sort of cache to justify the price tag are the lower-middle class over 60s. Whilst some of them may be able to afford it they are the ones looking to down-size. So, these properties will stay on for the same price for a long, long time

Its a shame that we may have to wait until this lot start croaking it before there is any sort price discovery and families can once again start living in family homes....

£425,000. Is this a joke? Even by Penwiths high standards, this is one of the most deluded valuations I have ever seen. Leasehold with service charges of £1800 pa inc.

"It will be difficult to find a holiday home in this condition offering better value for money.........."
