That’s it! We have found our house for next year. It is on Cannon Hill Lane, Raynes Park (not too far from Morden underground station). I saw the house when Claire was at work and decided that I wanted to move there straight away – so dragged her to see it first thing the next day, luckily she liked it too. It is next to a cricket pitch, a green and a park in a beautiful area. In fact there are about 8 parks in the surrounding area. It is a first floor conversion flat, with garden, nice kitchen, large bedroon and large lounge. It’s even closer to work for me and my bike (a grand total of approximately 8 miles).
It’s is also Â£55 cheaper than our maximum budget was going to be, so I am pleased about that. It’s going to be a real stretch to get the 6 weeks deposit, Â£100 admin fee and 1 month rent (in advance) together, but I think that would have been the same anywhere. We have put a Â£250 holding deposit down already which will come off the total bill – but I think I’ll still have to beg steal and borrow to get all the money together.
Anyway, here are some pictures of the house and the neighbourhood!!
