Ta, glad to see people aren't shuddering at the decor ;)
Ikea was extremely handy until it turned out they didn't stock the drawer/door fronts at Greenwich and I had to schlep over to Croydon to pick up the couple that I'd missed when I did my initial order.
The reason it's 'only' half a million is it's on a busy road. Move it a quarter of a mile away and you could add another 2/3/400k to the price. A shame, because it ticks all the other boxes. But I guess that's always the way - planning on moving from the nicest house on a noisy street to something that needs a little work on a quieter street.
@Howard £10 will eat into the forum donation too much. Call it $10 after Brexit and we may have a deal.
@Pifko front wall will be painted. For some reason I painted the inward facing walls first, despite the outside being more useful for the photos...
