__SPACER__ Walthamstowe, traditionally pronounced Walfamstow by people dressed as Pearly Kings who talk in rhyme is famous for a particularly seedy and dreary dog racing track. Sadly, Hoe St. is pronounced just the same as in America.<p /><p />You will have no trouble in refinancing this property since you will be renting out the distinguished looking mortgage and finance place below.
__SPACER__ 15 minutes from Heathrow is what it says in the blurb, hoping to attract someone stepping off the plane with a suitcase full of cash from Moscow, no doubt. Only adding its address to Google maps shows it to be 31 minutes - a 50 percent realtor-speak exaggeration. Perhaps the selling price will have a similar margin of error.<p /><p />It is in the posh bit of London, but get real folks this is a small 1 bedroom apartment for a million dollars. Facade looks like a rats maze to me.
__SPACER__ This property is in what used to be called the 'dodgy part' of Islington although half of the Green is actually in Hackney, which used to be called the 'dodgy part of London'. But I digress.<p /><p />You get a couple of flats above a shop, but what a shop it is. A realtor, no less, and one that appears to only sell homes which are purple, the nicest of all colors for houses - in nobody's opinion at all.
__SPACER__ At the end of the British Empire, England began to build strange houses which were mirror images of each other, joined together with a party wall. They seemingly offer none of the advantages of either a villa or a townhouse and perhaps even had something to do with the downfall of the Empire itself. Anyway, one of these in a 5 mile radius from London will set you back a million dollars.<p /><p />Its a shame to pick on this one (of hundreds) in particular, but its in Finchley and its mock Tudor, which helps.
