My life style is finished the perfect storm of 2 kids Covid and the x here most nights.I might has well hang myself or drink myself to death 

Still waiting for @stokiescum to put up a map of Stoke.

Unless we find a dead body in the bath, we are 99% certain that we will offer on the house we are viewing tomorrow (to add, we had a look at it last weekend and peered through the windows). Wish

Just as a diversion - and inspired by that place in Chester on another thread.

Show us the best you have got.

There isn't much left for sale round here, but I will start with this one.

I’d want to be at least 5 miles away from you. I wouldn’t want you dropping by every time you heard me switch on the kettle, and you can keep your boys out of my fridge!

I'll raise you Paddaburn House for the real off-grid experience.

A charming and wholly unique lifestyle offering - a delightful four bedroom stone built farmhouse occupying an idyllic position on the outskirts of Gilsland. Set in approximately ten acres and including a number of adjoining stone barns, outbuildings and garaging, the sale includes fishing rights on the river Irthing and a private trout pond.

Plus a 1 bedroom studio flat.

If you buy it I will become your friend.

That's why its 'cheap', you could be snowed in for 3 months and then, there are the midges and black flies.

Oh and the ground, all 10 acres of it is piss wet through.

Cheap is relative though, its actually expensive due to the overheads of being so far off grid.

I'm not saying where I live, but you might just manage to find a 2-bed bungalow in need of refurbishment for £500k, but only in a less desirable area.

Bit chilly in winter? Not suitable for oldies?

We actually viewed this one. Not where we want to be geographically. Yorkshire still top of the list for us.

Total unmitigated money pit. It's needs a stonking amount of money spending on it (lots of structural issues). I suppose as a compensation you do get a water mill for all your milling needs.

This will probably make Belfast seem cheap (edit: maybe not now I've looked at the other posts), but it's not, it's the rest of the UK that's gone utterly mental:

(EDIT: I looked up the size of the house and it's actually not that big at all, only 123 square meters which for half a mill is mental. My parents house is bigger than that, in a similar area, and cost them 175K 6 years ago)

Move a bit further out in NI and you could get something like this:
