messageReduced!!- House in Cornwall!!
Posted by jamesanderson 17 December, 2019 14:57

OK this is a slightly out of the ordinary post! We used to live in East Dulwich and left London for a better, more rewarding life based around family 2 years ago. We moved to a fabulous village in Cornwall adjacent to a village we used to visit every year on holiday for 10 years so we knew the village well. What made it all the more unbelievable is that within our village we have both a primary and secondary school with the secondary school being the best state comprehensive in all the south west! I myself work as an Architect and i've undertaken my first renovation in the village. All the more extraordinary is the difference in value from somewhere like ED to our village. We are 4 miles from the coast with many lovely beaches. We would love another family in ED to have the great opportunity we had in relocating here on The Roseland Peninsula, sell your 1 bed flat in ED for a 3 bed house (and get change!) in a village with a genuine community, pub, shop, post office, art gallery etc. Tregony awaits!!......

But not everybody wants to move out of London James! You say it's for a better, more rewarding life but each to their own!

Hammerman, Indeed everyone's circumstances and outlook are different. It worked for us and I like the idea of offering the possibility to someone else should they wish to pursue it.

Thanks to everyone on ED who looked at our ad to get us to 1000 views! It's a SLOOWWW market down here at this time of year. We have recently reduced the price and simultaneously completed the contemporary garden.


It is genuinely a lovely, lovely cottage in a great village with a real community and lots going on.
