#272003 - 27th Nov 2008 10:42pm Brookside Close for sale at £600,000

BROOKSIDE Close is the latest victim of the credit crunch.

Once one of the most famous addresses in Britain, the close is to go under the hammer for as little as £550,000.

Developers initially hoped to fetch £2m for the West Derby semi-detached houses and bungalows, including the infamous number 10, where wife-beater Trevor Jordache found his last resting place under the patio.

But with the credit crunch crippling the housing market, auctioneers Allsop have listed the 1980s red brick properties with a guide price of between £550,000 and £600,000.

Former Brookie stars today called on the council to buy them up as affordable housing to help families trying to beat the crunch.

The council said it would hold talks with its registered landlords to seek a buyer.

Former Brookside star Ricky Tomlinson, who played Bobby Grant, said: “It doesn’t surprise me they’re going for that. They’ve been knocked about a bit and they were a place of work, after all.”

The cul-de-sac has lain empty since the Channel 4 soap ended in 2003 after 21 years.

Developers bought the properties in 2005. All 13 were refurbished and it was hoped they could go for as much as £300,000 each.

I dont like spiders lol.

Id only invest as a long term investment. Plan is, buy the houses at the time of market crash, low value, spend 5 years oin em up, and sell for maybe 1 million+.

13 houses, when livable, even in todays market, could fetch £100,000+ each. And thats not taking into account the significance of them.

is this close to any education establishment, Im thinking Student accomadation, posh, well off students would pay through the nose to live in brookside close whilst they are doing their studies away from home. we could even earn enough to pay ex brookie cast members to do appearances etc.

Grand idea, do two houses a year, over a period of 7 years. Rent the 11 that arnt being done to students first year, then 9 the second year etc... Make em pay per bedroom, try and get the £500,000 or so back in rents over the period of 6 years and then sell em off in 2013 when the economy has recovered. After rents gained over the period of 5 years or so, even a crap Sale should turn a healthy profit.

Thinking about it logically, its a seriously good investment idea for a builder/developer, but would certainly have to be a long term investment, which is what would put most of them off.

I would'nt be surprised if it went for less than £400,000. I just wish I as more than a few grand to invest lol.

Yeah, even I can see the value in those houses, if I had 300k, I'd snap them up! You'd make many times that in a few years.

Come on guys - be honest - who is gonna be thinking 'Wow the chance to live in a house that got used in a soap opera that was dead popular in the 80s/90s but died a death because it went a bit sh*t!' Its like saying men will perm their hair and grow moustaches while swaggering in shell suits, and that it'll be dead good, yeah.

Next you'll be telling me people actually buy timeshares where they filmed Eldorado (actually come to think of it - that last part is probably very true).

Just thinking of the value of bricks and mortar, it's the only thing left with any residual value.
