A couple weeks ago while house-hunting, we found the most adorable little hidden neighborhood in the hills right between Downtown and Big Box Store Land. The house that was for sale wasn't great, but we loved a lot of the other houses we drove past.

This morning one of the houses we loved went up for sale, within our price range.

Lucky, today we drove all the way to Slough for a house viewing, and the realtor didn't even have both the keys. And didn't even apologise for the fact that we'd driven all the way from Oxford.

Note to people from larger countries - 43 mins on a motorway is a long way to drive in England.

Yes, it's true-in Europe 200 miles is a great distance and in the U.S. 200 years is a long time.

Either way for those from the USA.

Is two hundred years longer than one hundred years to the Europeans?
It's not to the people of the US.

One hundred years, two hundred years, one thousand years;
Those words all mean, "A Long Time." to us.

That does explain a great deal about US policies both domestic and foreign.
I've seen with my own eyes US policies and projects that lasted ten years.

We can do a five year plan.
Those are fairly common.

Anything longer than that has not passed the
US legislature or a public poll in a very long time.

We, as a people, may not be able to think about accomplishments we will not profit from directly.
We used to have a European perspective. We brought it over by ship. We lost it at a Rest Stop.

Not 100% certain, we still haven't viewed the INSIDE of it yet (hopefully tomorrow), but we're getting in pretty quick. Right now we're in a skinny, cramped townhouse with no yard, BUT insanely convenient, proximity-wise, to everything (schools are literally across the street, my wife's job is five blocks down, and I'm just a zip across the river).

The house would be considerably larger, on a quarter acre lot (not bad!) in a very quiet part of town with very little cross traffic, and right on the edge of town so there's trees and parks and stuff right there. We'd be a bit of a drive down the hill to get to anything, so the walking-distance would no longer be a factor, but literally EVERYTHING ELSE WOULD BE BETTER. More room, larger rooms, more storage, and not living in a townhouse complex full of screaming free-range toddlers and pot-smoking engine-revving jerkasses who FEED THE GOD-DAMN CROWS SO THE CROWS SCREECH AT 4AM OUTSIDE MY WINDOW BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEY'LL GET FOOD.

... so that's good.

Don't give up hope.
I've bought property that had an accepted offer by someone before me.
The financing fell through.

I was next in line, I was pre approved.
I loved that old house.

It can't hurt to let the realtor know you want to be next in line.
Or; You can decide you are going to find a different one that fits better.

Either way...

It was low tide i think. Was expecting it to be bigger. It's about the size of two football fields. The cliffs were impressive though

5 hours isn't bad. That's Bangor ME to Hartford CT, which we do about three times a year to visit family. Its a decent ride if you don't mind being on the highway most if the time.

I would prefer a train to driving, but I mean, living here in Southern California you are pretty limited in your options if you want to go anywhere outside of the LA area. Los Angeles to Las Vegas is about four hours, which I really wish there was a high speed rail between them.

Good luck! When we bought some said to us " buy the house you can only just afford, as your ability to afford it will only get better." Our house doubled in value in 12 months and our mortgage, the far more than we could pay off, is now laughably small compared to the value of the house.

Hope it works out for you.

Now to just convince my wife that "5 minutes up the highway into the Highlands" is worth it for a house that DOESN'T NEED ANYTHING FIXED BECAUSE IT'S ALL FINE. In a crazy nice neighborhood.

Random FT:

My mum used to make up stories about two birds that lived in traffic lights when we lived in the states. They were called Fred and George and they had little adventures like the lightbulb in one of the lights would go or they would both try to live in the same traffic light for a story. I think one lived in the red light and one lived in the green light and there was some jealousy between the two because the red light was on longer than the green light was. I think they had another bird move into the yellow light who moved away because it wasn't nearly warm enough which was the main reason for Fred and George living in the traffic lights.

They also had East London accents which is slightly surprising because they definitely lived in the States.
Good times.
