A 'Park' home in Nowhere priced as a Mews in London - Nice!!

It's not Nowhere.  It's where Piggy Lane meets Cemetery Road.

If you didn't see the location you would assume that was somewhere in west London with that price, truly insane!

Welcome to Cambridge :/

Thats a bargain in this street you have to pay that price and THEN build your own house smaller than the one you have linked to.

Or they will build it for you for 1.2 million

This is a very nice road but at the end of the day the most expensive house I can see on this road which sold was this one at £780k

Do you know much they were selling for ten years ago?, I'd wager that chap is retiring on that lotto win.

It's probably doubled in 4 years ... and if they bought it say 15 years ago.. they probably bought it for.... hold on a sec.. I need to vomit... 

...

..

...where was I? .. oh yea.. 15 years ago is it was probably worth £160k or so (just my guess).

20 years ago, houses in that street were going for £120-£140k...

Or how about a 2 bed terraced house for just £700,000?

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-56653225.html

I've been monitoring house prices in Cambridge for a year and it never ceases to surprise me. Just seen this bungalow come on....

http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-61591994.html

675K. And reduced from its original price in September of 750K. 

That said, these days I'm seeing a lot more reductions. And one prominent local EA hasn't had any new lettings or sales instructions in two weeks which seems quite unusual.

Interesting! In that case, good luck to the vendors trying to sell that new build in the previous link.

I think I once saw a local news article stating that 'Judges Drive' in NR4 was the priciest road to live on in Norwich.

I keep seeing examples of what I consider kite flying asking prices near me... 15%-20% higher than what other comparable properties have recently sold for, but then some dumbf**k comes along and pays these prices to prove me wrong!
