That is actually really nice
Envious. If we flounce from London, going to be the Midlands or North West I think.
That is nice. Love that style of front door / porch thing. Looks well looked after too.
Bit dated inside and will be a bastard to heat in winter, but very livable for the short - medium term.
Culverley Green was our Catford endgame before we flounced. It is indeed actually nice.
what do you know?!
Jealousy enducing £/sqft cf the SW postcodes.
Don't listen to @6pt.
Its not like he lives in a village idyll, with glorious views, a daycare down the road, a fancy bakery on the doorstep and trail runs/rides for miles and miles and miles, nor just metres away from (apparently) one of the best MTB trail parks in the country, chickens, and fresh air.
I know that I have not once missed walking down Sangley to get to the shops since we left Catford. Even took to walking down Culverley instead to avoid it towards the end. Sorry Ed/Dan.
Nah, it’s what we can afford and not planning to stay more than 5 years.
Yeah, don't consider any of that, 6pt has merely FAILED AT LONDON. :)
I’m still genuinely working on not seeing it like this.
Hardly a failure as London is not easy on people unless you’re rich.
I plan to go to Sheffield despite having ridiculously less mechanical work there and less chance of getting a roles due to disability, the quality of life is so much better and affordable.
Catford is Sheffield of London®
You can buy the same flat for 1/3rd of one in Catford.
But you'll be SO FAR from Good Food, Jerk Scene and Big Mouth.
There is still good food in Sheffield and there are plenty of Jerks up there.
Nice. [Sees price.] Ah, maybe not.
You do get a bit more space for your money in the North West
Ugh, that's horrid.
Can't dig up the garden either.
I've always fancied living in a church - mainly as a bit of a fuck you to Jesus.
That's really badly done though.
Decor aside, there's loads of wasted space.
Imaging how it is in winter.
It looks a bit like they moved in without realising they'd bought a church and then thought, fuck it, we'll make do.
You can't even call that converted, they just shoved a couple of sofas and a tv in to a church
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
