What, like an ant?

What the ****** where they thinking. How are you going to paint between the houses or even just maintain the property.

They might as well have made them semi-detached.

Anyone that buys these monstrosities is an idiot.

Checked the rightmove link, how disappointed are you going to be when you go to view and realize the picture is of two houses not one.

With semis, you can hear the neighbour, which is not the greatest. Especially if they are a mental (which, having paid 3/4 a million for a holiday camp chalet they will be). Mind you, the motive for making it "detached" in this way will definitely not have been to make life better for the occupants.

If they'd built one larger house, instead of two smaller ones, would it not have sold for more anyway!?!?

Sandbanks is a red hot area - money with sense generally don't come with the buyers. They will probably sell like hot cakes.

Somebody with the money could buy both, either join them together or knock both down and build something better.

Location isn't super-prime. You need seafront to really attract the people with more money than sense.

Yes, very craft angle used for the exterior shot. The houses don't exactly look massive do they for 3/4 of £1m.
