Side Alley Turned Into New House

Recommended Posts

And they think they can ask £359,995 for that?

Is this in Egyptian Pounds? :huh:

Right. Bit of mental arithmetic ... £359995 must be about 150 quid or thereabouts, depending on today's exchange rate.

Number 1 Stag Lane was sold 02/06/2008 for £389,000 then, yes the ALLEY was turned into a end of TERRACE .

The developer is still trying to sell the ORIGINAL house. The both were put on the market in July, the original property was put on at £515K and the end of terrace at £379,995, it does look like he's had to drop is price a bit. :lol::lol::lol:

Mind you the property next to the terrace property is Shore Point and anyone who bought there has got to have lost about a third of their purchase price. I don't live that far from there and pass it often.

I can understand someone who sees an opportunity and tries to make a few quid from it, even if it does impact the rest of us indirectly. But that is just staggeringly greedy. What a c***.

You think that's bad!

This is not a perfect example but I have seen "houses" in Quuens Park London (looking like the above) where the gap between the semis has been filled up and turned into a standalone apartment. It looks like a minature house stuck between two giant house. I cant imagine anything other than room for a spiral staircase connecting the floors. Makes you laugh how desperately some will try to squeeze a house into the tightest of cracks!

Yours for a mere £359,000. Just the kinda gaff you'd buy on a £100k per year salary!

I don't get it - those are the original buildings and if they ain't how do you get into the 'big houses'?

Nice price too. :D

The UK property market, nicely summed up in a single rightmove ad.

Depressing.

WTF!!!!

i can not beleive that ANY EA would agree to market that property at THAT value.

they must have their fees at a percentage of the asking price, and paid up front, as no bank would give a mortgage for that, regardless of price.

that is the madness of the UK property market.

I've never seen a kitchen tucked inside the front door before. Is that even legal?

This is pure greed. I don't believe anyone is stupid enough to pay anywhere near that price.

If anything sums up the mental debility of this country it is this. Even with this recession, the deficit, cuts, the obsession with overpriced houses continues.

Nearly £400k (a couple of lifetimes of debt) for a 'joke house'.

The country deserves what is coming to it if that is acceptable.

No, the tipping point has arrived. I disagree, this nonsense is no longer going to be tolerated. Noone will buy this rabbit hutch, and if they do - f**k them and their ill fortune - may they perpetually live a life of a hapless slave. The vast majority of people see common sense and I'll account for them, they are no longer the few, they are the vast majority and they won't stand for it. I'm telling you, because every single person I know now thinks this way - even the boomtime losers :lol: FU*K them, and their wannabe house prices. FU*K them.
