    It is very attractive, but not my style. Too much to dust there. The garden is lovely and it looks as though it’s been lovingly done.

    I love it, but half a million for a two bedroom with a road running through its garden?? Lordy-loo. House prices down south really are high.

    Very characterful, good interiors and good sized rooms. The thing about crossing the road to get to the garden is a bit strange though.

    They certainly are. That area is up north relative to where we live and I was thinking that’s not a bad price. My younger daughter and her boyfriend are looking to buy a property. They can go to £500,000 but for that the most they can hope for in SE London is a two bedroom flat.

    They've done it out nicely but the location doesn't appeal to me. Something in that style but in a less busy spot would be my preference. The split garden doesn't have any advantages that I can think of.

    I like the outside. That's it.

    Here in SE London that would sell for close to 700,000

    It's insane. My mother in law has a four bedroom, maaaassive flat in a historic tenement in the most desirable part of the city, and that would probably go for just over 500,000. And that's in Edinburgh, where house prices really are high (for Scotland)

    I feel so sorry for young people in certain parts of the country where rents are high and who will never have their own place.

    Not much space for bookshelves.
    Seem to be rooms for uncomfortable looking at rather than living in.

    I really do like the house and its decor, and the design features. It all looks very mellow. It's just the price that shocked me.

    In my road in London, the mid-terrace houses are on the market for £600,000- £750.000
    No access to the garden except through the house. They vary from3- 5 bedroomed. The very nice double fronted home start at £900,000 for 5 bedrooms.
    Not sure how folks would be able to afford such places but they do.
    Flats start at £400.000 for a 2 bedroomed one.

    Exactly this. London and its environs are a very different ball game. The average price for a 2 bed where I live (no driveway/no hall/downstairs loo) is £ 400,000.

    Gorgeous. Love this sort of period property but aghast at the price! You can tell I’m a northerner.

    Worth noting that the house in the OP's post is a long way from London (Warwickshire...)

    So do I. I don't think my nephews ever will.

    I'm wondering where you are. They are being quite picky about areas and they don't want to have to do any work.
