As some of you know when I retire (oh please god let it be soon!!) I want to go towards Norfolk. For reasons far too long to go into, I was sent some properties in Harleston Norfolk from a builder today.
Annoyingly although the properties are in Norfolk they are about as far from the coast as you can get 75miles from Cley/Titchwell and 70 miles from Horsey BUT only 20 odd miles from Minsmere!
Obviously I can't afford it yet but looking at the prices it was amazing!!
They have this absolutely ginormus house 5 bedrooms, study, 3 bathrooms (ok one an ensuite), living room, dining room, kitchen, utility room for ...... £240,000. Now 3 bed semis go for that and more round here!! They had 4 bed detached houses bigger than mine for under 200k!! And the 2 & 3 beds were £135k & £160k. I'm flabagasted!!
Its not an area I considered but um..... near to the brecks and Minsmere. and 50 miles closer to the coast..... I had been considering North Cambridgeshire but there are options it seems.
It is nice to know that one day I can move out from here, buy a decent property, be close to some good birding sites and put some money in the bank.
