Sorry, just had to put this out there, such a fab house, Chatham is clearly not good for house values

Misuse of the Klaxon. I came pelting over here, expecting pus.

Nearly broke my finger, banging down so hard on the mouse in my excitement

And it's a house.

You owe me a boil or something. I demand you slather your face in lard.


When one sees the word 'klaxon' in a thread title, one is overcome with excitement and incapable of taking in the rest of the title.

We pusporners own the klaxon and this is your formal cease and desist warning.

It does look rather nice (sucker for a Georgian House) but why is the garden so small?

Brycie Thu 27-Sep-12 06:57:49

I agree, terrific, worth the tiny kitchen and slightly ropy garden. Are there parks nearby? What a great price.

HecateHarshPants Thu 27-Sep-12 07:00:30

ey'up Brycie. how's the settling in coming along?

Levantine Thu 27-Sep-12 07:03:38

Oh lovely!

Brycie Thu 27-Sep-12 07:06:34

Hi Hecate well already I've missed waving to the children on teh bus because of being on here so its either going really well or really badly. And I see what you mean about logging out! have you been here all night

Brycie Thu 27-Sep-12 07:08:30

I'm really taken with that house. We're looking to move out and downsize in the next ten years but the idea of leaving London is so awful. But when you see a house like that - also I googled chatham and its links = suddenly it doesn't seem so bad.

HecateHarshPants Thu 27-Sep-12 07:10:01

grin no, not quite - although sometimes I have to be dragged away!

no, I have my hour or two on here in the morning while I'm walking the kids through their morning routine.

Brycie Thu 27-Sep-12 07:12:39

Mine are teenagers so they sort themselves out except for the stream of questions about "where's my?.." and I have to make them eggs otherwise they eat chocolate biscuits for breakfast. But apart from that my only job is waving them off! Fail.

But OMG that puppet thing.

I'd have to put it in a drawer if i was i the house alone

EdMcDunnough Thu 27-Sep-12 07:27:25

It's a great house but Chatham is mostly a sh*thole - which is a shame.

Location, girls...

Brycie Thu 27-Sep-12 07:32:19

Ed: yes but no but yes. Is it an unredeemable loocation? Surely not. I mean look at Brough ten years ago.

Brycie Thu 27-Sep-12 07:33:49

I mean Borough in London sorry.

Chatham is a mixed area. If you are used to London, it will be less stressy. We still have grammar schools, we have a theatre, sports centre, swimming pools, and a pound land. Within 40 mins you can be in town, at the beach. Withinn10 mins in the country (to me!). Within two hours well on your way to Paris.

But that house is on a busier road than i could tolerate. Though if you live on an a road now, no biggy.

There are definitely crap areas! But where aren't there? The local accent is harsh - basic estuary.

Now I am off to adjust my pineapple ponytail!

That house is on a main road near a shopping centre and a night club.
That might be why the price!!!!
Medway is a cheap area but has some better parts and some worse ones but has a good London commute and i would never go back to london to live especially with kids

MaggotMummy Thu 27-Sep-12 08:08:35

My face is duly coated in lard in penance Hecateharshpants

No not mine, idly seeing what our money might get elsewhere

shattereddreams Thu 27-Sep-12 10:40:22

Chatham sadly is a dive.
That's a busy ring road in a bad part of town.

Think Dickens in that house in Chatham and wear earplugs and it might just be do able

Rhubarbgarden Thu 27-Sep-12 18:58:52

Hah! We hightailed it down to Chatham a year ago to look at a Georgian stunner a bit like that. Then hightailed it back out again when we saw what Chatham was like! Shame.

It IS lovely.

Sadly, Chatham is not.
