This house will surely be getting will surely be getting a blue plaque any day now. It will say “The house closest to Sainsbury’s” and all who walk past will give a slight – some might say unnoticeable – nod of respect. Apart form the people from Tesco – they’ll not be happy.
So, if you like Sainsbury’s and loath walking then this house has got your name written all over it! Please note, if it actually has got your name written all over it, that will come out of your deposit.
Oh boy, it’s a great house – it’s ‘normous! It’s spread over three floors, which is great if you like exercise then you don’t even need to leave the house to recreate that “just walked up Kilimanjaro” feeling! And you don’t even have to ask your mates for sponsorship to do it.
Downstairs is the biggest kitchen I’ve seen this week so you can all prepare your food without getting into a fist fight over who is using the work surface. I feel it might even bring you together.
The 6 bedrooms are all great, apart from one which – truth be told – is small. It’s only got a single bed in it, but if you want somewhere to lay your head and want to pay less than all your other sucker friends then boom! It’s yours.
This is like the club sandwich of the heaton house world. And by that, I don't mean that it is held together by a cocktail stick, though I can't guarantee that it's free of bacon. Though that's not a bad thing - everyone likes bacon don't they? Except maybe veggies, but even then I bet they could be tempted.
What you have is three floors of wonder. The two furthermost bedrooms are on the ground floor and top floor, so if two of you don't really get on then this is the ideal situation.
Downstairs - lounge, tick. Massive bedroom, tick. Kitchen and utility room, tick. Jealous mates, tick.
First floor - 3 good rooms, 1 shower room, 1 bathroom, 1 additional toilet, stairs, skirting boards - you know, the usual stuff
Top floor - 2 lovely bedrooms
Et voila! That's your lot!

What a great house. Mainly attributed to the fact that it contains such a great number. 5. The amount of appendages on a Star Fish, the name of the 80's most popular drink 5-alive (though some would still argue that was Um Bongo) but most importantly what all of your friends will give you a high one of when they see quite how incredible your new house is. Sorry, I've confused myself a little bit - I'm alluding to the fact that they'll give you a high 5. God, that was tedious wasn't it.
Sorry, back to reality... so, the nitty gritty. 5 amazeballs bedrooms (I'm trialling that word - it doesn't really work, does it?), a superlounge (which is like the love child of a kitchen, lounge and dining room), 2 full bathrooms, a massive yard and a general feeling of envy from all your mates who come over to see you for an epic yard party!

“Hey man, how the flip did you get such a wicked house?” is what your mates will say if a) they are (understandably) green with envy or b) talk like idiots.
But they’ll be making a very valid point. You WILL have a wicked house, despite that word not being cool since 1994. And boy will you know it – you’ll be charging people to come round for a look before you know it!
So, the nuts and bots of it – 6 bedrooms, which means you will either be sharing with 6 of your mates, or 6 people you managed to cobble together to live together. You’ll all start off as mates, but will despise each other by Christmas….. we’ve all been there…..
Sorry, i digress.
All the bedrooms are of a good size apart form room 7. That ones a bit rubbish as it’s a single room with a slopey ceiling but you know what? We’ll do it so cheap that you’ll be an idiot if you refuse it.
Room 2 is my favourite – it’s two rooms into one so you can keep sleep and study separate. Or sleep and xBox – depending on your fancy.
Otherwise, you’ll be happy little bunny living here – if you’re not, i’ll come and give you a hug. And a toffee crisp.
