    For us Portsmouth is considered kinda the poor area and Southsea the posh & expensive area

    I live in the Portmouth bit as does Colin

    When Colin was buying his house we looked at houses in Southsea but for the same money you can get a house twice the size in parts of Portsmouth, which is what he did...

    My sister moved to Fazakerley in Liverpool about 25 years ago. I hired a van and helped her move from leafy Brampton in Cambridgeshire. Fazakerley was a shock to a 25 year old East Anglian! I'd never seen houses with metal roller shutter doors protecting all the windows/doors, or razor wire coiled on extension roofs. She bought a place in Aintree bordering the racecourse a couple of years later which was a much nicer area.

    Brilliant! Did they have Wikipedia in the 18th & 19th centuries?

    Interesting... The bottom one (Villas) looks right up my street! Both in terms of the style of architecture/history of the properties and the 'leafy' surroundings. Approx how much do they go for?

    That must've been the posh bit, as mental shutters wouldn't protect much against grenades.

    Liverpool was a fun place in the 1980s/early 1990s

    Yup, I kinda had that figure in mind. Thing is, in most parts of the UK you can easily pay 250k, for some new-build piece of shit in a soulless housing estate...

    Amazing that properties like that are so near your place. Wonder if they still have their original interiors or most of the old features?
