That is our current budget. Love the area we are in and we tied down to it for now but sometimes I feel frustrated with the size of our house. Its small.

So just been nosy (and sort of daydreaming where we could move to when we are older and freer) what would £350k get you were you live?

allchangeplease the price of the season ticket if you commute is one factor. Costs over £ 8k a year if you need the tube as well. The town has struggled a bit as have lot of towns but they are trying to prove it.
Crime not really an issue, I have no qualms in walking through the ten on my own late at night.
If you want decent shopping then Nottingham is not that far away.
I find it a really friendly area. And despite the cost if the commute am glad we moved here
The house you linked to us on a pretty busy main road and one that connects to A1 so get a far but of traffic. Not the prettiest of areas.

According to Rightmove, a price of exactly 350k would get a 4 bed detached house on an estate. Currently there are two for sale:

house a: reception hallway plus cloakroom off, lounge, dining room, fitted kitchen and family room, four double bedrooms one with en-suite shower room, in a semi rural area

house b: reception hallway plus cloakroom off, drawing room with dining area, study, sitting room, kitchen,utility room, four bedrooms, bathroom and shower room, large gardens to all sides with a coppice area at the end of the garden (good reason to mention that!!) Right next to the motorway and near a very large council estate. Has a double garage with an apartment over the garage. It says it is in an elevated position, that tells me that it is elevated because the back garden backs right onto the motorway embankment as the only houses in that area that are like that are next to the motorway.

In Newbury currently you can get up to five beds! Was surprised myself when I looked.

never mind 350K, look what you can get in Grantham for 259K asking price shock shock!

What is the catch with Grantham if it's only 1hr commute to London? there must be one - no amenities? crime?

btw how do you make a link clickable on here?

Tanya, that house shrieks potential and could indeed be gorgeous but what's with all the bars on the windows? Those would seriously worry me..

Could be amazing (with lots of cash spent)

Tanyaaah Fri 04-Jan-13 20:13:10

I want this house! near me

Iggly Fri 04-Jan-13 17:40:45

3 bed semi detached or 3 bed flats (generally large conversions)

usualsuspect Fri 04-Jan-13 17:18:12

4 bedroomed detached.

Sushiqueen Fri 04-Jan-13 17:15:19

BunFagFreddie - you almost made me miss my home area. Almost smile

MandaHugNKiss Fri 04-Jan-13 15:40:15

You'd get a two bed flat (SW14).

Not far from where I live (another one who lives in Lincs - I do the commute in from Grantham as do loads of others).

Can pay a lot less if you want to live in the towns to get a pretty large property.

ThePoppyAndTheIvy Thu 03-Jan-13 23:05:43

This one if you prefer modern or maximum bedrooms for your money

This one for character

sleepdodger Thu 03-Jan-13 23:04:20

This was our budget in mids
Under 200k loads of choice
375k and above loads of choice
Inbetween not alot, bun fights over what there is
It's not what I thought it would be- I imagined house hinting with 300k to be a dream, not pouncing on right move daily at 9am

ThePoppyAndTheIvy Thu 03-Jan-13 23:03:58

Oh bollocks - hang on, I'll try again grin.

ThePoppyAndTheIvy Thu 03-Jan-13 23:03:23

These two are both very local to me. [[ This one if you like a property with character.
[[ This one if you prefer modern or maximum bedrooms for your money.

BunFagFreddie Thu 03-Jan-13 23:01:33

You can get this for £350K

or this.
