How much?

You won't often hear me mention property prices but ...

a one-bedroom flat in a block near a tube line and also near the A4. In a street where a former girlfriend of mine - a single mum and not at all well off - used to live, so it must have been reasonably inexpensive at one time.
Price of flat. £375,000. 
How much!? You could buy three probably better than that around here. Something better in Chiswick or Kingston for a lot less than its price tag.
No surprise to learn that this is the Barons Court area of Hammersmith / Fulham. Somewhere which used to be ok but now seems to have changed beyond recognition, so crowded, so expensive.. No surprise that the Work In Progress, set there in 1997, feels nostalgic (although it really is partly an exercise in nostalgia).
