I'm Moving To Scotland

Recommended Posts

Flat over a shop or castle on the the banks of a tidal loch for the same money kind of madness

Don't worry, it's different in London ( this time ), new paradigm and all that. You can;t loose on bricks and mortar, the only good debt is a mortgage, price will double in ten years, blah blah blah.

Squalor isn't cheap these days. This pic says it all. The flat cost so much, not enough cash for a wardrobe.

Plus the fact that it's really a 2 bedroomed flat on account they scrapped the kitchen on the first floor and designated it a third bedroom. dry.gif I so long for a return to Parker-Morris standards in the UK.

How many bedrooms can you create out of one flat?

Not enough room, more like. Probably one of those ubiquitous 'double' bedrooms measuring about 7 ft x 8.

For sure people will be rushing out to get on the Help to Buy ladder with the flat.

They could always let it out and cram 30 or 40 people in there - at least - Bargain.

Blimey there's even a hand rail to help you get out of the bed/bath - what more could you ask for. That feature alone must be worth quite a few thousand pounds.

Hand rails being so hi-tech it all helps to rebalance the economy of course.

I know this area quite well and it has always been a bit grotty. there are so many shops that haven't been used for 5+ years (boarded up and very sad). What has happened is that about 2 years ago, the three upstairs floors, above an old bar, across the road and on the corner were renovated and sold (7 one bedroom flats). This has started a craze on this part of Lavender Hill and another 4 or 5 properties are now adding lofts and selling off the flats. Also these three premises were auctioned a while ago and I did see them on eigroup.

Fortunately it does make this section fo the Lavender Hill look a bit nicer, but it is a very busy road and the prices are just mad.
