For what it is, it is cheap.

A house like that would cost upwards of £2 million in the UK with all that interior decoration and land.

It might do down south. It'd set you back £100 in the North East.

Well, here are the last three times: he's stopped me opening a yellow jacket sanctuary, he told me vodka was unnecessary after a pint of gin, and reminded me Texans might be armed the last time I squared up to someone for dropping litter.

Looking a bit more closely at the pictures, it does appear that the plaster is in pretty rough shape in a few spots. Nothing a few strategically placed Bowie posters won't fix, though!


Maybe if you change that to Doug Sahm I'll have a better chance of changing his mind!

Y'all keep talking about how cheap it is, but I've looked and looked and don't see a price. How cheap is it?

Which is only “cheap” when you consider what it would cost if it were 30 miles to the southeast.

I defer to Prof’s local knowledge, but I’ve looked at big old houses in my favorite parts of Bradford and they seem to start around £400K.

Which would get you a wardrobe in London. If you are lucky.

It is a bit gauche, but seems well appointed, and I quite like the decor. Half a million pounds would buy you a two up two down in the home counties. I like all the land you get with it.

It is a bit gauche isn't it. But it's wonderful.
I have terrible property envy of whoever gets it.
I hope they don't fuck it up.

Update the kitchen, find a 'needy' relative and turn it in to B & B .. with two barns you can also do some sort of cat rescue.

I've always wanted a house with a pond ... or two.

I won't buy it because I don't want to live in Texas.

On a serious note, I wonder what a house inspection would cost on a place like that .. don't purchase without an inspection.

It looks like a fabulous setting for a 1940s melodrama. :D

I’m sure that stair case has been used in a Joan Crawford film!

That's immaterial if you can't afford half a million dollars. I often wonder how people can afford these kinds of things. I'm on a good wage and we were right at the limit of our mortgage and our house is £200,000. And obviously I realise that to some people £200,000 is unobtainable.
