I rather like it. What's that grubby little white building in front of it?
 
#7
It's not standing IN half an acre, it's standing ON half an acre of loose gravel.

Try not to worry about the big building behind it. Dungeness "A" nuclear power station closed down some time ago and is being decommissioned.

Worry instead about the one you can't see behind it - Dungeness "B" - that's fully operational...

...and the proposed Dungeness "C"...

Ha ha! I hate reading estate agent drivel... according to them every house is an opportunity not to be missed, and all rooms are 'of a good size', whatever that means.

I don't believe a solitary word they say/write.

Not all :roll: :oops: .... but far too many that's for sure. Just for the record guys, IMO this agent is probably in breach of the Property Misdescriptions Act 1991 wherby a property can be misdecsribed by omission (which includes photographs). If people want to get rid of the wide boys/ girls, then complain. The reason we (yes, that what my civvy job is) have so many cowboys is because far too few people complain and far too many choose the cheapest agent who promises the highest price rather than looking for an agent whose gone to the bother of getting qualifications and joined a professional body.

(awaits the inevitable incoming) :wink:

Incoming indeed. Did you happen to be an estate agent in Cornwall in the 90's?

Don't get me started on those pointy headed Kernow fukcers whingeing about how they can't buy a house because the 2nd Homers are moving in. The 'Estate Agents' actively encouraged the locals to sell up for, a not inconsiderable, sum. If you want incoming, lets have the property spiv take on things.

Believe you me, they took no encouragment! In the twenty plus years I have been doing this job, I have only had ONE customer who refused a higher offer from an out of County buyer/ refused to sell to a non local (however you define that). Furthermore, if I had a pound for every customer who has asked "do we advertise out of the County-because thats where the real money is" I would have retired from this a long time ago. For the record, I hate the sharp suited two faced t0sser brigade as much as any on here :evil:

Problem is people who want to buy a first time house in Penwith is ******* horrendous unless you are able to buy a house first time for 200,000 plus with a 30-40% deposit, try doing that in one of the poorest regions.

And only £247k, it's a snip.
Wonder how many "real" offers they have had!
It was on the local news on TV down here in East Kentistan at lunchtime...

Been on the market for a month. No offers, not one.

The reporter walked from the boundary of the property to the Nuclear Power Station fence, counted it as 14 paces.

And the difference with first time buyers in Penwith and first time buyers throughout the rest of the country is what, exactly? As usual the Cornish blame everyone and everything else for their problems. Look a little closer to home and you'll find that holiday homers wouldn't be able to buy in Cornwall if only for the grabbing Cornish cnuts who put their houses on the market for sale to the highest bidder in the first place. Fukc the local youngsters looking for a place to live, I'm alright Jack. I've no problem with initiatives to curtail 'outsiders' buying up local properties. The problem with the pointy heads is that they believe that they should be allowed to live and die in the same place for 2/6 shillings a month mortgage because they're 'local'.

I'm an exiled Scouser and I thought Liverpudlians wallowed in self-pity. But Fukc me, the Cornish could teach them a thing or two. Welcome to the real world!
