Not as far as that from the station; probably only 5-10mins in the early AM. NO parking and at least a year's wait for a permit. Just on the edge of the "tourist zone" so could be a bit noisy in summer. I also have to wonder how they'd define the word "detached"!

5-10 minutes uphill all the way, you must be fit :o

Maintenance costs, parking and Yeller Kats must run fast.

Visit the area on a Saturday night.

:lol: Got visions now of Yeller Kats sprinting around the area. Been working out how to do it in 5-10 minutes. I think the return journey from the station would be possible on a skateboard at 2am.

The property looks nice, find out if any of the garages are for sale across the road. Prepare yourself for the seagulls. If you do view it let us know what you think of the agents, noticed they have been saying nothing is wrong with the market in the local rag. Their description is a bit bucket inducing, the following;

"The worktops are unusually deep making preparation of those complex dishes just that little easier!"

Thanks for your comments.

I'm not as close to the B&H market as you residents but I'm seeing this property as offering at least some evidence that the first cracks are appearing in prices, I've been tracking B&H prices in this band for about six months and this strikes me as a being a good 10% down on the prices from say last September.

How's that then? To sell anywhere near the asking price, it would have to break the ceiling price on the street.. the highest sale price achieved on the street was the place couple of doors away which sold for 480k in 10/07

Value for money??? Don`t think so..This (like any other hoose in B&H) would have to drop atleast 30% before it could be considered even close to value for money...

Detached 6 bedroom period property, some rooms 18 feet, a 21 foot kitchen, massive garden, 2 huge receps and a garage all for £389,950 . . . in St. Leronard's. Why not check it out? Lots of nice, middle class types already cottoned on and moved in!

:)

As long as you don't have kids expecting any kind of a future:-

And you think this (massive) sink school, in Brighton, is any better??? Ha ha!

And as for the schools just outside central Brighton that all those poor Londoners fleeing the capital will end up at when they can't get a place in a 'nice' Brighton school - well, they may as well be living in St Leonards in an absolutely enormous house with no mortgage so they can afford to send their kids to private school, right?

I'm sure St Leonards has its plus points, but can you realistically commute to London each day?
