Also surely you would cover the thing with mirrors, stick a good lighting system in there and it would look 100% fabber
Wanna go halves anyone?
(I'm in to it)
silly that it's £275,000 though
front of the house shows the door... with nothing on top.. like a single storey.. yet you go inside and theres a bed above it the door :/
looking at the picture of the inside the bed should be on the roof..
would really like to live in this house. someone should buy it.
stupidly expensive though.
Though the sort of person who'd spend so much on such a tiny house deserves to end up paying that much anyway, so maybe the price is appropriate.
cushions on the floor instead of a sofa
the blob lives in the shower
and there'll be a lovely surprise waiting every morning you wake up without having done the washing-up.
A little pod for micro-living. It's a nice bit of town that, as well.
it's pretty much where tony blair used to live, that side of the park was fully gentrified by the 1980s. but i'm fairly sure someone once found a severed head in a carrier bag in the nearest park (the big park on that map is basically just a gravel football pitch bc it's not much more than unrepaired bomb damage from a V1 rocket). my family went to the local pub there until they got priced out. still got a couple of pint mugs my uncle stole from there in the 60s. we didn't inherit my nan's house because the council were just keeping it to sell when she died. saw it on the internet for close to £2000 a month and all they really did was refit the kitchen. they got rid of the nicotine stains i suppose. if you lived here all your neighbours would be dickheads. just remembered when my dad went to look at my great gran's house after it got sold and the toff who'd bought it was showing off 'the wine cellar' but it was just for storing coal. the street was dead on weekends by the early 2000s bc everybody who owned a house in the street went to the countryside then. my nan, my great gran, my great uncle and a cousin of the same generation all lived on that same street but they're all dead now and i don't have any connection to the area anymore.
those days are long gone
this post really reminded me of the Mike Leigh film High Hopes, about a working class/lower middle class family in an increasingly gentrified North London. Have you seen it?
(not seen it no, generally only seen later mike leigh stuff but that looks like it'd make me fumingly angry yet still able to have a chuckle about my life)
is instilling me with an informedly strong disdain for gentrification and this sort of irresponsible, exploitative real estatery
we had 5 floors :)
that floor tile just ruins it for me
I surprised no one has mentioned this.
it'd be sound
With a mirror.
"wonder how much house prices are now" for round near us.
There's a tiny studio going for £280,000. We nearly bought a 2 bed for that a year ago. We made a huge mistake.
And if you chuck a few mirrors up, you can watch yourself sit on the toilet while showering.
I'd hazard a guess that 139 sq ft is pretty close to that. So you'd probably have to live in it yourself if you bought it rather than renting it out (I think)
They should really block that bit up
then this would be amazing - but as it is, I'm out.
Might be tempted back to it if it had JT's second single off of the 20/20 experience playing throughout.
some nice two bedroom flats but no houses, this is the cheapest house I could find: http://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-32127252.html
£340k! bit of a do-er up-er.
there's only one property available over £205k. 3 bed townhouse in a great location - £170k. 4 bed spacious trad stone tenement flat also in good location - £155.
I like the way they're just horizontal planks so all the dust and dirt will fall through
it'd be funnier/more amazing to see a similar story going round about a house in London that's really reasonably priced. So it'd be phrased in the same way but astonished at how, given the price, the bathroom is actually a pretty decent size and there's some storage space in the loft and then some disbelief at how light and pleasant the front room is.
Buzzfeed, if you're reading this, you can have this hilarious idea for £800
