    It’s so cute from the outside—it looks like a dollhouse! Inside, well, I’m sure it can be fixed up. First thing to go should be the bathroom carpet….

    Considering the large amount of expense incurred to restore utilities to this home, the asking price is a bit hefty.. There doesn’t seem to be any indication of the amount of land included so perhaps that could make up the difference–however, if the roof is needing replacement, well . . .

    Pretty on the outside and would be more so with good landscaping. They may have mentioned the need for landscaping if the basement is wet. Interesting!

      I don’t pretend to know a thing about prices in England but have found that even ruins can be high priced. It’s always about the location even overseas. I don’t know about this location, maybe you are right but rarely is a home price start with the condition.

        I guess this horrible cold/flu has my brain clogged and I didn’t remember that you cautioned us about prices in Europe. I am also spoiled by my frugal upbringing and corporate management training. Sometimes amounts of money just astound me and my whole being screams, “Noooo”, as I look for “what’s wrong here…”

        A friend from the UK agrees that property prices there are high and the reason why many people don’t own property unless they inherit it.

        So I’ll toddle off to my bed, hoping I haven’t offended you. Take care Kelly, and keep up the good work. I truly enjoy your submissions!

          No offense at all! I hope my response didn’t come off that way.

          Location is really the reason why home pricing doesn’t make sense and prevents many in certain areas to not able to afford buying a home (heck, even renting!) The same can be said for cheaply priced homes, it’s usually not because of the condition rather that the local area would not support high priced homes. What one home can bring a million in one town the same home could go under $50k somewhere else.

          I hope you get well soon!

    Don’t know how to share StreetView, but here are the coordinates. (52.7514737, -2.3627046) It’s just inside the gates of the national gymnastics center. Seems to be in a very quiet area, but drivable.

    Well, its rather on the other end of the scale, but I found Athelhampton House (on Savills UK) today. Normally, it might cost too much to consider including, but it’s a largely intact Tudor Manor house with original stained glass, carved wood, intricate plaster ceilings, old stonework and superlative fireplaces. Too beautiful not to take a look at.
