Can you give any context to 'stunning' please?

Stunning
1. Causing or capable of causing emotional shock or loss of consciousness.
2. Of a strikingly attractive appearance.

If someone came to see this expensive flat would they be shocked? Is it possible they may lose consciousness?

I'm afraid to say that £369/wk doesn't seem out of proportion for a good spec flat in the current market. Looks pretty large, in great condition, very light, views, ensuite, close to tube (although on a busy road - looks like it is the top floor one above Sainsburys). Really good two beds are going for over £400/wk because there is not much good stuff available. You can still pick one up for around £300/wk but you need to be either really lucky or put up with something not very well maintained and small.

Definitely a dreadful choice of username though.

No garden, and look at the tiny size of the second bedroom!

This sort of place was going for about £1400 at the start of the year - now it's £1600. That's what's happening around here.

I really hope our landlord doesnt decide to give us notice anytime soon. We wouldn't be able to afford to stay in Brixton at those prices :(

You should be alright where you are **** hardly ever puts the rent up. Only once in the time I lived there. I don't reckon they'll sell anytime soon either :)

There was a beautiful 2 bed flat in Rushcroft Road going recently. I reckon it's a little bigger than the one above and it's in a much better location if you ask me. It has a better kitchen but only one bathroom. And I don't suppose it has much of a view. They were asking 1500 a month.

Thats cheap for rushcroft these days. I know of one that was going for 2200 per month. It was a 2 bed but let as a three bed with no lounge :/

Yeah I know, that's why I said 'studio'. And when I said 'pay',
I meant the state, not me. :D
They wouldn't pay that much for a houseshare - all you get is £85 a week. Does anyone know of any flatshares that cost £340 a month HB? No? Thought so. :mad:

There was one in the window of Brixton Wholefoods a day or two ago. I'll have a look tomorrow to see if it's still there, if you want...

I paid about £180/£200 in 1997. £500 or £600 in a shared house seems normal now. Some two beds are £1500+ a month now... :(

Does anyone know of any reasonable priced rooms going in the New Year in the Brixton/Brixton-ish area? Not sure I really want to stay where I am so looking for somewhere new.
