The Lost Housing Estate.

Recommended Posts

I thought the buildings looked familiar.

I stayed in the same design at Khong Chiam. The chimney area is the bathroom.

The same day we went for a drive around the housing estate on the road that runs past the white temple from the Super highway to the old Chiang Mai road.

It's quite interesting with a lot of very nice houses, some for sale... we saw one with a sold sign... and also plenty of building blocks.

It's been there for a long time and I got the feeling that it's not been quite as successful as the developers would have hoped.

Perhaps a bit far out of town?

Maybe a result of the meltdown in the late 90,s .Saw a lot of high rises and condominiums just stop dead .

That is a nice building block with the views. Wonder how you would trace who owned it to buy.

We thought that ourselves, friends were looking for land in the area this year and it would have suited them if they had not already decided on a nearby block.

Village Farang, you have a real gift with a camera in your hand....lovely atmospheric pics....

There is a very eerie abandoned estate off the canal I sometimes walk on near King Kaew road in Bang Phli though they started doing up a few last year. The locals claim it's haunted but in truth by nothing more than squatters, soi dogs and snakes.

I wonder how Victoria Village is doing on the road to Canary Coffee and Kun Korn WF. A couple of those places close to where I live, Buffalo Hill area???

I also wonder how much "saving face" bears in the owners disposing of the property quick when it is a no go.

Canary Coffee is still operating, I did a thread on it recently Scorp.

We went there Friday but it was closed while they resurfaced the roads.

Victoria village has been closed for a while.

I went to Canary a few days ago as well. Wife for flowers, me for bird.

Scorp, you raise an interesting question about wierdness, and thank you for that question ;-)

but isn't this a question simply about a farang not understanding the property development market, which may (or may not) be going on under their noses.

And really I have met several of the contributors to this forum, and they really do not have the dosh, not that I blame them for that,to engage in that business....

A nonsense speculation post has been removed as well as the resulting replies. This is not about the retirement poverty trap, etc.

I must have missed the deleted posts too as I am at a total loss of what the heck this was about. One minute we were discussing the curious nature of abandoned housing projects and then... Edited by scorpio1945
