Buyer Beware!

I’m not sure whether to be all HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! or all GRRRRRRR!!!! on this one, but I think I’m kinda sorta leaning the HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! way.

All I have to say is Britain’s Geering & Colyer Estate Agents got some MONSTER balls, yo!

cottage4saleThose bitches are selling this 1930’s cottage —>
for 247,000 pounds (that’s roughly $394,242 for us statesiders) with the following description:
“Located on the Dungeness National Nature Reserve is this exceptional detached fishermans cottage set in approx. half and acre. The property offers three bedrooms, two receptions, loft room, conservatory, kitchen and bathroom. There is a garage and off road parking. This is a property not to be missed!”

Lots of room. GREAT!
On a nature preserve. PERFECT!!
Half an acre. WOWEE!!!

Sounds niiiiiice, right?
You bet it does!!!!

And the online photos show an abode that is just simply nothing short of charming!!!

Well, that is, until you see your neighbors.
Dungeness nuclear power stations A and B.



But no.
This is serious.

“It was unbelievable,” remarked formerly-intereted-but-understandably-appalled buyer Alex Robertson.
“I had seen the property online and thought it looked just right for me and my family – but when I got there I just saw this tiny fisherman’s cottage in the shadow of these huge nuclear power stations. The photos make out it is an isolated cottage with nothing surrounding it at all – but that could not be further from the truth. These power stations are literally at your front door – there is no escaping them, they are gargantuan.”


Eh, not so much.

And don’t hold your breath waiting for Geering & Colyer to offer any apologies for mastering the black arts of deception and trickery! No sir!

“Dungeness is a place you either love or you hate and the power station is just part of that,” they said.

Well I guess that’s just fucking THAT then, huh!

Caveat emptor, biatch!!!
