What is Lorem Ipsum?
Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?
It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where can I get some?
There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don't look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn't anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

A £5m Fixer Upper

Belgravia flat offered for £4.95 million in spite of featuring collapsed ceilings, ripped out light fittings and holes in the walls

 

Before putting a property on the market and having it photographed for a sales brochure, most would clean up and make the space look appealing. In Belgravia, however, the owners of a £4.95 million ($6.16 million, €5.84 million or درهم22.64 million) lateral flat in a Grade II listed building in Eaton Place plainly didn’t bother.

 

In spite of showing evidence of attempts of a renovation, pictures of a 1,810 square foot third floor flat show electrical wires hanging from collapsed ceilings, rubbish on the floor and holes in the walls.

 

Knight Frank offer the “totally unmodernised” 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom property on a long lease with 94 years remaining. They describe it as “offering buyers a chance to create a spectacular apartment”. The late Roy Brooks, an honest estate agent and author of Brothel in Pimlico, would have had a field day and no doubt advertised the flat instead as: “Bashed in Belgravia: Those with a dislike for dust need not cross the threshold”.

  1. @Rose Steele. Location? Indeed, don’t get much better than Eaton Place, unless one lives in Buck House! As you say, repairing costs will be nothing to the person who buys.

  2. Pathetic!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Far too expensive given it has low ceilings and is in a boring area!!!!!!!!!!!!! Much better buying a really nice flat in One Hyde Park!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
