  • what no en-suite

    Hi, I can't make my mind up regarding buying a 1960's 4-bed house, detached with 4th bedroom downstairs.
    It is set in beautiful grounds all-round, but the house has a flat room extension for lounge, no En-suite, and no kitchen diner.
    The house is mint though, but I feel im paying for the surroundings and not the house.
    The question is I suppose, how important is an en-suite and kitchen diner?

    Only you can make your own mind up about it.

        Price the changes that you're after, see if it all still makes sense with those costs added in.

            Not very - these tend to be features more of newer build properties from what I've seen.

            I wouldn't expect an en suite bathroom in a typical 1960's house.

              Thanks Brian, that's what I was wondering, as the couple in it now have lived there 30 years brought up 2 kids and looked puzzled when I mentioned en-suite, utility rooms etc, they had not even thought about it, I do think it is a new build policy to try and take your mind off the fact you have no garden and are overlooked from every angle, but is it what modern young families expect when spending good money?
              Who knows?

                Yes, it is something of a trade off - en-suite and utility room, in return for little land, thin walls, and a timber frame building with bricks around it.

                Would much rather a home built in the days when they were expected to last.

                  looks like i might be buying it now, as 15% has come off the price, which is very near to my bid.
                  Your right about the solid walls, and build quality.
