I once nearly bought a P house – from the Queen.
Expecting a second child, my wife and I had started hunting for a larger home. For sale in a leafy suburb was a bungalow that needed a bit of love. It had been bought by the Transport Agency for a motorway project but was no longer needed.
Because it was owned by the Crown, the vendor was listed as Her Majesty the Queen – for use in connection with a road.
