A great opportunity for Alty fans to acquire....
« on: March 17, 2008, 02:24:15 PM »

A fine example of estate agent speak reported by the Laidlermeister....

....If you want to live in the luxury accommodation now being built on the former Altrincham FC car park, look at the Arley Homes website. The development is called "The Court Yard, Hale" and is described as "A select gated development of twelve townhouses and two apartments, within walking distance of Hale Village. The development is set out in a courtyard arrangement, a layout which ensures that residents will enjoy peace, quiet and privacy in discreet surroundings that are entirely in keeping with the prestigious nature of Hale and its environs".....

Strangely, the words spacious and exclusive are missing, as is the phrase "highly desirable" and  " this superb executive development benefits from a fabulous view and a delightfully delicate scent of open air toilet blocks and catering facilities,  drunken away supporters baring their arses for a laugh, the deranged cries of local nutters, and the gentle wafting sound of traditional songs regarding sticking things up your arse."

Any why is it called "The Courtyard"? Can we please give this a proper name...suggestions?

Given that it's built in a defensive square formation, like a certain texas misson, and also like it, it's likely to be invaded by hordes of southerners, why not call it the Haleamo?

Sadly it will have no windows onto the ground as I understand it.

When I heard that I put the money back in the Post Office and looked elsewhere.
