"a Most Unusual Attached Cottage"

Recommended Posts

This property "is subject to restricted occupation and cannot be used as a permanent residence." That's because its primary use is as a torture chamber.

No. 01

Strange entrance with no doorknob tells us something's not quite right

No. 02

Utility cupboard in the corner where shock treatment electrodes are kept

No. 04

Spend your evenings circling through the doorways like in Midnight Express

No. 07

Seat kept permanently up to flush head for water torture

No. 03

Where you're lined up and finally shot

Property also benefits from being right on a very busy main road, which will drive you crazy from the noise.

No. 07

Bog Paper included at owners discretion.

'cannot be used as a permanent residence'

that's handy - you can buy it for £150k but you can't live in it

The real giveaway is in the cupboard under the sink.

Some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

if you think that's bad, you lot need to move up north & see what we have to put up with.

That would be classed as an executive property in Wakefield. :o;)

Dad; etc etc

Any EA spiel beginning 'A most unusual...' should set the alarm bells ringing. It usually means 'This is a Frankenstein's monster of a property and will cause us much hilarity and whooping if some poor mug puts in an offer anywhere near asking price'. This case is certainly no exception.

Could it be perhaps that a farmer is flogging this outbuilding which he has previously used to house a gang of illegal immigrant fruit pickers?

I'd actually like the property if it wasn't right next to an access road like that. Looks kind of cosy hehe.

But how the hell can they ask 150K for a place you can't live in permanently?? It's utterly pointless :lol:

I am still on vacation visitnig my son in Texas and have been looking at a few des res'es. In contrast to the torture chamber offered by RM at 150k ($305,000) hows this for a contarst at about the same price:

It really says that value ofr money in Gordon's Britain does not exist. It says that, despite the most overvalued currency in the world, you still can't buy much with it.

Surely the concept of actually owning a home in East Sussex is worth 150K,to expect to be able to live in it is asking too much.
