Is there a property or building for that matter that any of you guys would either like to live (in an ideal world) or simply have a look around. I personally would love to have a look inside the large building on London road opposite Sainsburys that Miranda Richardson used to live in. Some of the properies on Liphook cresent.

What about you guys?

A cute little white cottage with pale blue woodwork on Honor Oak Road - I think I may have read Emma Hamilton once lived there. I may have made that up though.....
There are some really sweet cottages in Dulwich Village but the prices are insane....

The cute white cottage on HOR could be the house William the fourth stayed with his mistress prior to becoming King , much to anoyance of Queen Adelaide I would imagine.
I think the two art deco nautical houses at back of Horniman's are amazing. You expect to see Hercule and Capt Hastings on the balconies.

As a child went up the tower in St Barts Church Sydenham whilst in the scouts. View even from there was great.

Ah yes Brian, thank you - I knew someone's mistress was stored there!

Re the converted church - one of the flats was for sale recently and it looked amazing. I imagine the views were quite good too.
