I've looked at it on streetview and area looks a bit rundown. Anyone know more - is it complete Shitsville?

it looks typical sea-sidey road to me.

I don't know anything about the area but I did look at the sold prices on rightmove and about 95% of the properties sold are flats. In my experience this brings the area down but perhaps that is only round here (Birmingham). I would suspect that the only reason this isn't flats is due to it being a listed building.

LadyKooKoo - I'm sure you're right. The house it's attached to is definitely all flats and looks very run down

Also, I am not sure is anyone else has posted this from Zoopla but the property was sold in 2007 for £350k. Given that 2007 is just before the crash, I would be interested to know what condition it was in then to justify such a price increase in a declining property market.

Sorry for the multiple posts but it also sold in 2002 for 180k so would guess that the condition when it sold in 2007 wasn't too bad at all.

Found this from 2010 marketing, it really shows off damp in tower.

that's a beautiful wreck there.

i think the price isn't appetizing though - otherwise it would have shifted.

if you want it negotiate very hard indeed.

searching in that price bracket brings up some ealy lovely places in that area

i rather fancied this one myself though that is totally blowing the budget smile

i'm currently obsessed with a house that is sold STC to someone else.

i live in hope.

our sale goes through in the new year - if we'd snagged our buyer a few days sooner that would have been ours - arg!!

Thanks for posting that LayKoo - yes the tower looks ridiculed with damp.

I think the price hike is due to the fact that there has already been quite a bit of refurbishment in the lower part of the house.

Edgar that oast house is amazing!

be very wary of Zoopla - its data set is very incomplete at the moment as it does not include any houses sold to or by companies or any house sold after reposession and many houses sold at auction - those being the ones excluded from the Land Registry data

in a rising market it meant that Zoopla under estimated 'values'
in the stagnant / falling market it means that many people have inflated views of what things are actually selling for

Hi Nancy
The house is sold now, I saw this thread today and had a smile to myself as DH and I would dearly love to buy it. Its just round the corner from us so I drove past on my way back from work. Covered in scaffolding
