"The photographs include CGI Images to show how this property would look once refurbished." :roll:

I dunno how some of these listings get away with it ... if you look at some of flats in the Nine Elms area of London you'll find some showing fantastic views to the river out of the living room windows but if you then look at Google Earth you'll find that there have been a couple of skyscrapers built blocking the view since the photos were taken...

Looks like the CGI work was carried out by a 5 year old.

~£300k.....The World's gone mad! It looks like an ex council house in need of a lot of money spending on it....then it will no doubt "stick out" compared to the other properties on the street.

Amusing estate agent's name: "Nigel Fudge". Rather apposite I thought!

Oh! it really is a wery pretty garden
And 'Endon to the westward could be seen
And by clinging to the chimbley
You could see across to Wembley
If it wasn't for the 'ouses in between. :D

These days, Keynsham is solidly Jacob Rees-Mogg. No surprise, perhaps, that the projected outcomes of this exciting investment are a little wide of the gloomy actuality? :D

But hey, give it 50 years and we might have recouped the outlay....
