Jesus Wept. The Most Expensive Loft Conversion Ever

Recommended Posts

Located in an unexciting suburban street half way between Rayners Lane and West Harrow. Chatsworth Gardens a gaudy Indian style extended house marketed at an overpriced £599950. Unsold. Solution put two rooms in the loft and put it back on the market - way for it - you won't believe it - at £1195000. Agent Foxtons Pinner. Pictures on Rightmove.

I bet you are speechless....

No, they've listed at £1.2m on 9 Jan

Floorplan http://lc.zoocdn.com/b48722b7af4554415742f0127da317e3f5a3b7b2.png

As you can see the floorplan is symmetrical apart from the top floor. Lots of bins outside. As you say, an Indian thing, big family or illegal immigrants or whatever.

Relisted on 31st Jan separately

Unless there was a previous listing, the £1.2m came first.

I think they are more like £450k semis but it's not as ridiculous as yo make out.

Ok I think I see what has been done. The history of the development is the other way. They've knocked two semis together as a £1.2 million house and unable to sell that the desperate and greedy opportunists are looking to fleece buyers for semis instead.

On that road whatever way the deal is cut it is a monumental rip-off.

And I wouldn't be cynical in decision and pricing is influenced wholly by the Gov's Help to Buy Ponzi. You can well I imagine Alexander Hall offering a 11 times income mortgage so someone can buy this overpriced piece of real estate.

It is the decision even to market it at all as a single house for £1.2m that baffles me. Why would somebody want to live in a house that has clearly been converted from two semis in a road of similar semis?

Not without precedent in the area to house large extended Indian families. But the asking price for an unremarkable house on a dull suburban street is pushing the price ceiling to a new absurdity.
