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?

Hahah, isn't it marvellous? If only!

No, we'll be over the road a bit. Or we will be, when there's a roof and floors and all those other tiresome requirements.

Advantages of being up north!

A tiny 1 bed flat/studio. Possibly.

One bed flat here, 440 sq ft and above a shop but 5 mins to a zone 1 station in London. Could also get a 2 bed if willing to go ex-council. No garden, no good schools, but great for getting into central London, nightlife, fringe/arty events and quirky shopping!

4 beds but small garden.
North east. Good area. wink

A 4 bed detached house if going for a non new build - if you want a new build probbly a 5/6 bed detached.

Generally a two bed or a small three bed. If the road is particularly nice then only a one bed. We're moving slightly further out in order to buy a 4 bed house.

I love that Georgian townhouse.

forevergreek Thu 03-Jan-13 18:40:33

Mrs- I'm not sure, but we are London, zone 1. We live in a cardboard box equivalent

Here you go.
It really is in a "much sought after area" - that's not just EA speak grin

One bedroom flat, possibly some garden or outside space hmm.

lynniep Thu 03-Jan-13 18:46:13

4 bed detached with conservatory and garage, possibly double garage. Decent sized garden. Simple enough commute to London but not much fun.

Or www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-37787450.htmlHere. elegantly done, but on a busy road, although convenient for everywhere

Or www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-38079251.html?premiumA=true here - bit more 'lived in' inside, but a quieter road, and masses of space.

Interesting to see the huge amount of differences in floorspace. Having seen these maybe ours isn't so small after all, more average really for the price.

Still, it feels too small!

Ah in the beautiful Peak District
house

We're practically neighbours it seems, EddieIzzard! Is that guesthouse the one on Caton Rd?

<waves to fellow Lancastrian RalphGnu smile >

Yea, I think it is, on the way out of town past the TA grounds?
