UK - Guardian: A house is a home

Excellent article in the guardian, sums up Irish/British attitudes to property nicely. Its long, but spot on. … ouseprices

Hmm wonder if that could possibly apply to Ireland as well?


He is so right about Notting Hill…It is the most overrated part of London. Almost Kensington prices but very very grubby in certain parts. The high street is like a zoo.
I think that Hugh Grant film caused every ex-pat American to think that it was THE place to live in London 8)

Yeah, Portobello market on a Saturday is not bad. But other than that it’s really grubby. Dirty uncared for streets with the occasional expensive cocktail bar/restaurant. And I’ve always found it to have a tense undercurrent. Westbourne Grove nearby is much nicer.
