Thats a £500K house max if ever I saw one. Maybe EA's should run a Pricerunner site for houses where people bid the max they would pay for a house and the winner gets the house, works for hotel rooms so why not houses.

Worse still, maybe they've already spent it...

Yeah, a ludicrous price for this type of house in Brighton.

I can understand the premium paid for flats and small houses in the city centre, and for anything with a sea view, but for this type of 'leafy suburbia' living, I'd want a big discount for Brighton over the commuter belt proper.

For that money, you could get into a bigger house in Guildford:

or Sevenoaks:

and you'd be in genuine commuting distance of London to pay off that big mortgage!

Most likely - Dyke Road boomers probably already bought that villa in the Tarn-et-Garonne and an option on a luxury 2 bed appartment (ahem) walking distance from Seven Dials or the sea-front... ;)

Bit of small plot for £800K. But otherwise the house is nice. I'd be looking for an acre or two at that price. Would fly off the shelf sub-£500K.

All houses similar to that are basically the same...four walls, paving block or gravel drive a drab kitchen, fluffy carpet bed rooms and white bathrooms that are fit for purpose...can't get excited about that to be honest...much of a muchness...lots of cleaning...lots of expense in furnishing..high council tax and heating bills.....can't see the appeal for the price imo......outside space neighborhood and how close you are to the things that matter must mean far more..... ;)
