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.

An Expensive Blank Canvas

Repossessed Knightsbridge flat for sale for £5.25 million in spite of being a complete wreck

 

Originally built in 1870 with a façade created from the Portland stone from the original Blackfriars Bridge, 33 Ennismore Gardens was converted from a single-family home to six flats in 1947.

 

In 1998, an additional mansard level was created to house an additional apartment and now the top three floors of the building are available instead as a single unit for £5.25 million ($6.6 million, €6.1 million or درهم24.1 million).

 

Listed by Knight Frank on behalf of P. Mayo MRICS and A. Kisby MRICS of Allsop LLP acting as joint fixed charge receivers, the 2,732 square foot space on offer has previously had planning permission for a 4-bedroom apartment complete with 3 reception rooms and even, a little more exotically, what was termed a “cocktail room”.

 

The Grade II listed, leasehold maisonette is currently presented in what the selling agents term “shell condition” – i.e. a total wreck – and “requires complete refurbishment”. Most of its internal walls and fittings have been removed and the resulting property offered is probably better described as “a very expensive blank canvas”.

  1. Great potential in terms of developing the buildings but rather expensive given it is in the northern climbs and needs completely modernising.
