Amazing spoof article…. It can’t be for real…..

TWO-BEDROOM SEMI WITH A BEACH VIEW - YOURS FOR £1M

Property prices in Cornwall look set to withstand the effects of a global credit crunch with a two-bedroom semi-detached house in St Ives valued at a cool £1 million.But Russian oligarchs with a few spare rubles and City whiz-kids whose end-of-year bonuses are burning a hole in their pocket will need to be quick.The house next door has already been sold for a six-figure sum - a quarter of a million above its original asking price. With a balcony overlooking Porthmeor beach and a private entrance to its own beach-level shower and toilet, the lucky owners will be able to walk straight from the beach into their own home. And once the sand has been washed out of their hair they can sit on the balcony, cocktail in hand, and take in the breathtaking view across the golden sands....

  • Holiday homes are amongst the first victims of a recession. When people tighten their belts, they drop the unnecessary luxuries – whether it’s a daily cappucino from Starbucks, a horse that incurs stabling fees, or a holiday home which becomes a burden. With the price of petrol reaching £1.10 a litre, people are less inclined to drive all the way to their cottage in Cornwall – and if they visit it less often, they might start to wonder what’s the point in even owning. Expect prices to fall off a cliff in Cornwall, the Lake District, Spain’s costas, Florida, etc. The furthest flung destinations should suffer most.
