CHAT HERE PLEASE

This week's topic for the competition is...

Estate Agent Particulars - any image (internal or external)  that might appear in a set of particulars for the sale or lease of land, residential or commercial property.  Optional extra - caption it with suitable estate agent euphemism.

We're flat-hunting at the moment and having to learn a new language, such as 'moments from the tube' means the Piccadilly Line runs through the back garden, so I thought it would be fun to have a go ourselves!

Love the idea! Used to be an avid reader of estate agents ads. They really know how to hide. or rather, dress up, the truth.
Haven't done much since I took up photography, but it's probably not too difficult to get back into it.

Good luck with the flat hunting!

Déjà vu?

An excellent theme, my favourite for a while. Well done. I will try this one for sure.

Looking forward to brilliant pants.

I'm thinking along the same lines as you Jinky, but your estate is very superior!

Yes with mine the short walk to town is the most sarcastic comment. Went up to Top Wiuthens from haworth. Reading the signposts I can now confirm that a country mile is at least 2.5 ordinary miles! My hips were so bad I could barely walk later  :'(. As for being the building featured in Bronte`s book - no chance!

Mine's bang in the centre of town, nice and urban. Still thinking about it and trying things out.

This is an abandonded asylum on the outskirts of Epsom called Hollywood Lodge. 

Quite an adventure this one.  I had to trespass to get this shot (well I think it was trespassing if jumping over a fence is considered trespassing).  I was then surrounded by several over-friendly horses who must have thought I had food on me, and on the way out a passing police car stopped to find out what I was up to.  Luckily I was on the outside of the fence by this point.


Characterful period home. Recently repainted, new window treatments. Just needs your decorating touches.

I like the 'hanging garden' on the portico.

Woodland views?  (If the window wasn't bricked up)

I like jinky's "solar heating" - made me chuckle. ;D

As we are trying to highlight the estate agent's euphemisms, they're bound to be similar!

The only real difference so far is, that 'my' property is indeed on the market, albeit as a rental property.

I have looked at the agent's website, to see how he describes it, but it I couldn't find it.
