Could you legally rent that place with this staircase?

Looks like it would cause a badly broken ankle if you aren't careful! And the stairs lead DOWN into the basement bedroom, so it would be very difficult for the ambulance to get you out if you slipped.

Guide price: £40k

£465k - studio flat 351 sq ft.  Yeah, I know it's Marylebone but c'mon.

And my favorites below (not s#*tholes but overpriced) were two of many links sent to a colleague in the NE in an attempt to explain why I was unable to afford a home in London (the difference in our living standards is quite telling).  The prices left her gobsmacked. She visited London a few years ago for the first time.

Some of these are not to bad on the scale of the shite being built today (I don’t mean price wise). My favourite is a new build flat near me.  It’s three stories and is the exact same height as a Georgian house next door, it looks ....odd....and shite.

I think there will be a period of stagflation in housing.  The good stuff with a garden, real walls and liveable areas will tick up in price , while the new builds drop.

Where London goes, everywhere follows (the London flight may alter this) and we are falling...

Surely that must be a typo? 

Sadly I doubt it.  Richmond is crazy expensive.  I just got a Covid bargain basement rent here and am astonished at what property changes hands for.  I just don't know who can afford it.  It definitely isn't the stereotypical Asian / ME investor buying here.  Most families are young (30-40) so doesn't seem like old money.

Here's another 2 bed house on the market at the same price - https://www.zoopla.co.uk/for-sale/details/56848937?search_identifier=6c95ed33ced260ba3c0b5accd3c61abc

The one's an extra £50k - https://www.zoopla.co.uk/for-sale/details/57027651?search_identifier=6c95ed33ced260ba3c0b5accd3c61abc

Or if you want a flat you can look at the conversions in Star and Garter House but those go for £2-3.5m for a 2 bed.

If you think it is too much money do  not by it.

There are loads of things that I think are overpriced.  I do not post photos of them or rant about them I just walk away.

Yes, very good point.  If I have a thought about something, I definitely should never express it.

Walk away, just like you did on this thread, you mean?

Blimey!  £54M and £44M and neither of them have any garden.  

Well, that's certainly one heck of a floorplan! A far cry from the usual semi-detached layout>

I guess when you get to those price brackets lack of a garden isn't really an issue.  You just step out the front door and straight into your car, which Jeeves will drive you to the private airfield and your waiting private jet or nearby helicopter, and whisk you off to your evening barbecue somewhere in France or nearby closer to home - and then back home to bed that same evening IF you really had to.

Place like that probably requires a full-time cleaner. Like the Humber bridge, by the time they have finished they'd likely have to go back again to where they started from. Certainly not your typical 2-hours once a week cleaning lady. 

As for value for money....

I guess you could ask IF you were lucky enough to not just win the UK Lottery jackpot BUT a many multiples rollover jackot win would you buy that place OR, say, a castle or mansion with endless acres of land somewhere in Europe - and still have millions left over.

Agree with the stairs themselves, but how do you have stairs that go to a basement any way other than down?
