    The three-bedroom "not to be missed" bungalow at Romney Marsh, Dungeness, is being sold for £247,000.

    Estate agent Geering & Colyer points out its proximity to a nature reserve and photos show it in rural isolation.

    But... they fail to mention one small thing...

    The view out the front would be all right though, and you might be able to get a discount.

    Massive price anyways for the size of the house!

    Could be worth it though if they get free electricity.

    I did laugh when the camera pulls back from the house revealing the monstrous plant behind it. I can see how the property seller might have accidentally missed it from their description, it's not really that noticeable.

    Hell yeah, if that happened you'd be set up with a job in the porn industry for life.

    If I could get a mortgage for £200k, I'd snap that up. But then I ived within a few miles of Dounraey PFR most of my life and TBH, I find that imnposing few of the plant quite attractive. - and I'm well aware that most of the rumours about what happens to you if you live near a nuke plant are just that - rumours thrown up by the anti-nuclear brigade.

    Would depend on ambient noise levels etc too though, but I certainly wouldn't discount it just because it's near a nuke station. After all, people live on high streets, and the average town high street is far more dangerous IME!

    But will the plant be decommissioned and dismantled, or decommissioned and replaced in 2018?
