Please note: The deleted posts are about houses that are no longer on the market or that I'm no longer interested in. It was a bit pointless that people kept commenting on houses that weren't relevant no more, so I decided to weed them out.

That's one helluva disability pension you're getting there!

By the pictures I'm assuming a house with a large garage/storage shed/shop and it appears several acres of land goes with it. The house looks to be in the 2500 sq. ft. range if the upper area is habitable. Not many windows in the upper section though with what looks like only one window on each end of the house.

Clean looking to be sure. What's with the area across the road that appears to be part of the property outlined in red? Is that all wooded land like the back end of the larger parcel?

Wow, I only saw the first 4-5 pictures when I posted. That place is NICE and I like the clean lines of the interior. Nice wood floors, beaded board ceilings, great kitchen with tile flooring in there and the laundry area. Tons of storage space in the out building. Love the garden and gazebo. Nice touches and can't believe it's been on the market for a year unless they are asking a small fortune for it. If you can afford that on pension, good on you mate.

Wait, all that for $211K US. That is a steal. My house in the middle of the city with an urban size lot it worth more than that. If that came up when I sold my house, I'd snap it up in a heartbeat and put money in the bank after paying cash for it. Damn nice.

The red marks all the parcels belonging to the property. It totals 3 hectare (About 7.5 acre). I would be making a bit of money but not much by leasing it to the other farms nearby and selling it would reduce the number of possible buyers in the future, so I would just keep it and make a little income of it without having to do any work on it myself. The main house (red roof) is 127 square meters (1367 square foot). The upper floor is not utilized so you could turn it into living space and double that but for now it would just be myself living there, so I don't plan on it yet, should I end up buying it. The 2nd building (black roof) is 147 square meters (1583 square foot) and partly has a 2nd floor. It's used as a garage, workshop, storage and holds the wood pellet boiler. The workshop is insulated but not heated. The roofs isn't in critical condition but it is nearing it end. The roof on the main house should hold another 2 decades at least

The same here. I don't get it. People simply refuse to live outside of the cities it seems. It's a 25 minute drive from the center of Denmark's 3rd largest city, which itself is 2 hours drive away from the Copenhagen and 1½ hours away from Aarhus (2nd largest city). But just more house and fresh air for me at a lower price, so I shouldn't complain about people being idiots :cheers

What are the schools like out of interest?

And I bet that costs fuck all compared to UK properties. Looks lovely. Depending on where that would be in the UK, you're talking a mill half
It'd cost a quarter that if you lived where an average NUFC supporter lived, ie in a sewer.

FFS!!!!

My house is worth about £200-220! It's about time I sold up and moved on.

You live in the land of bacon right? I could eat bacon everyday in a house like that.
