Where's the oven?
unless it's a very small oven.
Where's the fridge?
its a good 50 feet from the camera. you can climb inside it no bother
with a regular cupboard door on?
ALL WILL BE REVEALED TOMORROW
aka too small to split the kitchen and sitting room into two
No floor plan for this one which is a bit poor.
11.30am tomorrow, don't be late. There's a Homebase nearby you can park in.
as if thats a place.
this one is clearly better
I am also a member of Penge Cycle Club.
you complete fucking penge
it's a place name that never stops being funny.
it's brilliant not sharing any part of your flat with neighbours, almost as good as having a house.
Above a post office, apparently. Also on a busy road. Hmm.
WE HOLD THE KEYS!
we're so shit at building things in the UK
High hopes for this one. It's basically in Dulwich. Why is it affordable?
I'm not looking forward to moving again though. Hate moving. Awful.
But I've not heard anything. Probably for the best because just LOOK at the wallpaper / whatever in the bedroom.
hate those types of houses you get pretty much all around ring-road london suburbia.
-are those dildos on the shelf in picture three above the tv and the booze shelf?
-the bedroom :') how romantic!
-can anyone explain the tiny window in the second bedroom?
but it has a summerhouse for fucks sake!
needs some decorating but its ok
you should definitely try and keep the portrait of the old man
I say it's not a great location, but the river nearby is *lovely* and Catford will be okay one day
WHY WON'T THE PERSON PHONE ME BACK
For a little bit more than some of places in this thread you can get a fucking castle-type thing with a sauna in it up here: http://www.residenceestateagents.co.uk/search/property/?id=118114
tricky getting to Kingston from there though
We're not restricted with area now given I begin a new job in central London in a couple of weeks, but we still wanna stay round here so this is where we're beginning our search.
you can get a period cottage in the poshest part of sheff for cheaper.
Rip all the old shit out of it, big fuck off telly on the wall, lovely.
keep it up guys
a) it's Foxtons
b) it's basically in Beckenham
c) it's above a shop
But FOUR BEDROOMS AND A ROOF TERRACE?
No pics of roof terrace though. It's prob 'flat roof with access'. Not that you couldn't make it nice...
What if it closed and became a bar or something?
takes a bit more time than that mate
you'd knock millions off the asking price
£300k gets one bedroom and use of the bathroom from 7:15-7:25 each morning
get a similar wage to London if you moved somewhere affordable. 300k for a 1 bed. I just couldn't bring myself to do it. Just how many museums and theatre trips are you pretending to go on in a month to make London appealing!!!111 This post was brought to you by common sense. Thanks for listening.
and she's famously afraid of flying so would never be able to visit them
We're lucky we can afford to, and we both have stable jobs which pay us enough to get a decent mortgage *and* enjoy the stuff London has to make us want to stay here.
Thank YOU for listening.
we've got loads of those terrible pubs you like
and my boyfriend
A bit like Location Location Location or A Place In The Sun.
none of us can read
become my specialist area in libraries in the whole of the UK. They are very few and far between :(
Saw these flats and another one (the one someone was meant to phone me about).
We're not going to buy any of them.
The search continues. Maybe to Catford. Or Bellingham.
and if they had an oven.
I even said "IS THAT A WINE RACK" and the agent said "yes I think so".
I said "no OVEN!!!!" and the agent was quiet.
Why would you fit a new kitchen and not put an oven in?
plus hobs and microwave:
Plus whats to stop you using the oven as storage space?
That is still pretty ridiculous. Shouldn't be a deal breaker though - you could just replace it. Although it always seems so wasteful to rip up a kitchen that looks brand new
Most of the space was in a windowless basement. For 325k; no thanks.
Saturday did clear up that we want somewhere with a bit of "character" though. I don't think we're gonna find it, are we?
Don't see why not. As long as you're open to any area.
and microwave meals.
There was an absolutely massive nobhead looking to buy near Canary Wharf, started off in Blackheath before realising what they wanted there was outside of their budget, then the same thing happened in Kidbrooke, Woolwich, Brockley and Beckenham until they got to Sevenoaks which is where they ended up in the end. Phil couldn't disguise his contempt for the man. At one point he said "I'm not paying half a million to get a bus to work".
and said "This show isn't called 'Nice house with a nice view'." Thought Phil was going to lamp him.
They showed the couple a place in Catford and she started crying? And they ended up in a Barratt Home in Sevenoaks?
Sack off looking at anything above a shop. Unless you're a cash buyer then your mortgage people won't let you buy it in case the shop gets sold and turned into a mad sex shop or something.
Wish me luck, guys.
Hope you get on.
Can you tell Kirsty that Epimer from the internet sort of fancies her a little bit but actually not really?
I did it in anout 15 minutes so I'm not expecting to actually get on it. Though I did try and be funny AND desperate.
