Desirable residence in need of moderisation.
Fabulous views, no immediate neighbours.
Private drainage and water supply.
Extensive grounds.
Great potential for investors.

Sharon looked at Guy in disbelief.
It had been a long journey to view this property, and both of them wondered how estate agents could get away with this kind of advertising for something that was nothing more than a ruin!
They got out of the vehicle and stared over the wall.
‘At least they were right about the views,’ Guy said. ‘See that? There’s a pub down the road. I need a pint.’

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. I think if they could actually sell ruins, they probably would! What a hoot 🙂

    • We actually viewed a house with a similar brief and it was practically falling down. The only thing holding the front door together was a coat of paint, the private water supply was a pile of pebbles in the drive, the ‘paddock’ sat 90 degrees to the road, the kitchen consisted of a tap in a dark room with no window or electricity, but the best was the bathroom come dining room. The bath was too long for the bathroom, so they’d cut a hole in the wall to accommodate it and it was poking out into the dining room with a shelf over it.
