The bungalow at the rear of the house next door is nearing completion. It's been a long time in the building, and meanwhile the market has of course collapsed. In its particulars the drawing looks rather attractive, and no doubt it could be made so, but it still looks like a building site.
Our house - floor area, 382 square metres, excluding our separate storage buildings - has been advertised since January. I have now removed its For Sale sign: it has been taken off the websites. Our asking price was only £50,000 more than that of this adjacent new bungalow, with its floor area of less than half ours. And virtually no garden.
