Most expensive yet I've seen described as a first time buy grin

Anyone seen any more expensive than that?

And it's just a glorified bedsit.

I love the champagne with two glasses on the side in the kitchen.

How is is a "glorified bedsit" when it has a bedroom?

Our 'first time buy' was round the corner from there. Only slightly bigger, was £85K in 1990. Wish we'd hung on to it.

I say that Owl because it only has one small living space. Yes it has a separate bedroom, but it's not much bigger than a bedsit.

You must have seen swanky bedsits then.

No, but I know a pokey flat when I see one.

Wow the living room is taller than it is wide - that's a really small room (or an incredibly high ceiling!)
So glad I don't need to live in London.

I don't think its that small, the living room is 20 foot long.

I'm looking at much smaller flats than that - that ones too expensive for me

Definitely not a glorified bedsit, but why would you spend all that money on a one bedder [whispers] in Earl's Court confused

That's just London prices these days, sadly. Lots of Londoners only buy in their 30s/40s so have bigger deposits and salaries. We had to pay more for our first flat here 2 years ago, though it was a 2 bed and much bigger.

This one in Holborn is described as 'a great rental investment or first time purchase' at £649,950

I note they don t say how long the lease is. It could be short.
