Home Wreckers

Is this what happens when you answer one one of those A4 Sheets stuck to electricity poles that say "I buy houses call 0414 123 456"?

I pass this house regularly on the way to and from work. It has been looking run down for quite a while. Then last week they started tearing it down. The garage on the end always intrigued me, too small for a car except perhaps a Morris Minor. This house was finished in a Tudor style, and even though the cladding has been ripped off it still looks the same with the bare frame and plaster walls visible.

It's a nice big block of land. Looking at other developments in the same street the options are to either build a massive two storey McMansion or cram in three or four units. So far I haven't seen a planning permit application board (that's not to say there hasn't been one before I started going this way)...
