Corfe Mullen

Would you say it's worth the extra money compared to these two (same road)

Coventry Close, Corfe Mullen, Wimborne

Coventry Close, Corfe Mullen, Wimborne

Which ones your preference/ why? grin

It's the kitchen that will be the selling point in the first one, it also seems 'bigger' from the photos, but I didnt look at room sizes so maybe a better photographer! Why do you ask OP?

Chamonix1 Mon 24-Apr-17 19:18:40

We are selling one of them and wanted to know opinions!
Thanks for your feedback smile

An extra £16, 500 for a nicer kitchen. No, not worth it.

Especially since one of them is end terrace and has a much nicer garden.

Chamonix1 Mon 24-Apr-17 19:29:29

Thanks Ella, I agree.

I like number 1, it's lovely and bright.

Moanyoldcow Mon 24-Apr-17 19:31:58

If I were looking I'd be going for no 2. Kitchen in no 3 looks pokey and the rooms are a bit cold.

No 1 has a narrow garden and the extra money is just the kitchen.

Which is yours?

I agree with Sagethyme , loved the kitchen in first one.
But I preferred the feel of the third house, I could picture myself living there!
The garden steps put me off the 2nd one, but nothing you could do about that!

I choose the end terrace

GuinessPunch Mon 24-Apr-17 19:32:31

The first one looks much better to me. You could move straight in and has a nice big kitchen.

Babbaganush Mon 24-Apr-17 19:32:59

As a buyer I would pick number 2 - more privacy, better garden. It needs work but nothing drastic. Prefer end of terrace or semi to being mid terrace.

I think the kitchen looks dark in property 1, it's lovely but I don't like the conservatory wrapped around it.

Number 3 is nicely done out but I prefer a kitchen diner to a galley kitchen.

The first one is better presented internally, the question is would it cost 15 k to get the other two up to the same standard, probably not. In addition I think that second two are prettier from the outside, more kerb appeal.

I think on balance if I had the extra 15 k I'd probably buy the end of terrace and do it up.

FrogFairy Mon 24-Apr-17 19:33:45

No, I would prefer to buy one of the cheaper ones and choose the kitchen/ bathroom myself. First house has no room for a dining table and six stools squashed around the breakfast bar wouldn't suit me (not sure if the dresser unit is built in or freestanding)

elodie2000 Mon 24-Apr-17 19:34:51

No.1 has an open plan kitchen which makes it look and probably feel bigger. It's the same size as number 2 I think but number 3 is smaller because it doesn't have a conservatory.
As for the price difference, number 1 has an advantage when selling because of the large kitchen - is it worth an extra 16K? I don't think so but a buyer may pay it if they don't want to do the work (knocking wall down/ refitting house 2's kitchen).
House 3 is smaller without conservatory so yes this one should be cheaper by 8-10k...

Which one is yours OP?

Which one is yours?

IncognitoBurrito Mon 24-Apr-17 19:35:26

Number 2 is by far the nicest. End terrace, bigger garden. Number one seems overpriced or the other two are underpriced...

Topuptheglass Mon 24-Apr-17 19:35:36

The third house looks great, the garden is full of character.

The second house might appeal to me better if it were furnished.

Crispbutty Mon 24-Apr-17 19:36:06

I would go for 2. End of terrace and much better garden.

elodie2000 Mon 24-Apr-17 19:36:37

I've got 2 and 3 mixed up! Sorry! 😄

1nsanityscatching Mon 24-Apr-17 19:37:09

The neighbour's house on the first one looks a state so that would put me off anyway. Wouldn't pay the extra in any case tbh.

Crispbutty Mon 24-Apr-17 19:37:38

I would wonder why so many houses on the same close are up for sale though!

HatHen Mon 24-Apr-17 19:38:23

Number 2 is what I'd go for.

steff13 Mon 24-Apr-17 19:38:39

I actually think each one has its good points. The first one has a nice kitchen. The second one is on the end, so probably quieter. I prefer the look of the third one, I think I would choose it over the other two.

They have small yards, which is kind of a bummer.

Chamonix1 Mon 24-Apr-17 19:39:09

Thanks everyone. Mixed responses.
Ours is the first house.
Take the point of kitchen feeling dark, it does and no natural light due to conservatory (meant to be a window above the sink- builders didn't listen to that request!)
Garden isn't as nice, I agree and the front of our house is littered with neighbours crap. Washing machines and old hovers (has put people off not sure what to do!)
Might consider getting rid of trampoline.
Dresser is free standing. Enough room for 4 seater table with no dresser. Maybe I should take 2 stools away. (Comfortably sits 6 mind!)
Main thing is ours isn't end terraced.
New bathroom fitted this year though and kitchen.
The the other two properties went on after our and have made me think.

NoSquirrels Mon 24-Apr-17 19:39:41

I'd buy the end terrace.

House 1 looks lovely, but not an extra £15K worth of lovely.

House 3 I can feel all the redecorating putting me off if I could do the same sort of work in House 2 and get a bigger garden and more privacy, and the kitchen/bathroom be entirely to my own taste.
