My dream is to one day live in 67 Grange Walk. I may just turn up on the open house weekend with my suitcases.

Printed programs seem to run out fast - so anyone who wants one better head down quick to the John harvard Library. There was a big pile there today but it wont last long.

You have to feel sorry for them, living in a house which is so expensive they cannot afford carpets.

I want 67 Grange Walk!!!!
I think it's actually a bit of a snip at 975,000 - should we all pitch in and buy it collectively?

You have to pay 2 just to download the Guide in PDF from the Open House website. You'd think they don't want visitors.
