A builder bought this plot and squeezed two houses into the same size footprint as the other properties on the terrace. An average 3 bed with the same size footprint sells for about 140K in this area (a not very desirable location on a main road). The builder has put 2 loft bedrooms in each property and was asking 140K (for the one with a door in the middle of a bay window) & 130K (for the one with no downstairs front window) - 270K in total. They've now reduced both by 7.5K. I suspect they got consumed by greed and turned blind to the fact that nobody in their right mind is going to buy a house that looks like a generic bay fronted victorian style house but you only own half of it - the "door" half or the "window with a door in the middle" half...

There's no windows at all down the side of the property, and look at the floorplans! All 4 of the front windows are in hallways/landings. The lounge and two of the bedrooms have openings at the back but the kitchens and bathrooms/WC must be completely void of daylight! Great design...
