My dream home.

So I spotted my dream home for sale. It's in the building that is home to my church, aka Kentish Town Pool. Imagine walking up those steps, through that ornate door, sticking your head out of the window and chatting to one of the little masonry people? Then popping downstairs for a swim.

Ahh, if only I had £359,000 to spare. (Can I just have a moan about London property prices please? This flat is tiny. It only has one bedroom. The kitchen and living room are open plan. And it costs £359,000. You can't see me but I'm doing a wtf face. Still, if I had it I'd buy it.)

  1. Oh god isn't it beautiful! I can't believe it is so expensive though. The tiny one bed flat we rent is worth about £300,000. Ridiculous.

  2. Isn't it crazy, E? I don't even think it has a bath, from what I can see in the pics? Just a shower? wtf?

  3. That parquet! Those windows! The gargoyles!

    Hmm.. we're all going to be hobos. That kind of money would buy a proper 3 bed house in my parents (not cheap) area...

  5. Just a shower?! Well that rules me out then, I love baths too much. Ah well, will have to find something else to spend my spare half a million on.

  7. That looks gorgeous and very expensive indeed (from the outside). I love the tile detail and the arches. One day! I like going into houses and pretending I can afford them. Many a real estate agent has hated my pseudo-fraud.

  8. Looks beautiful! Must admit I did check my lottery after reading this, but no luck unfortunately.

  9. Dear Caroline, love the building, love the parquet floor but that is really expensive. I can't believe it only has one bedroom and no bath! The annoying thing is how hard it is to get that on a mortgage these days. I could never afford to buy mine now. I think I worked out I'd have to earn £150,000 or something mental! xx

  11. Blimey. You can get a five bed in a great area in Manchester for less than that. Mind you, the houses round here don't come complete with gargoyles. That's probably what makes up the price difference.

  13. Fab building, but yes - that's a lot for one bedroom. Although 3 years ago we'd have been glad to get it for so little, probably. *sigh*
