    Straits of Gibraltar about as strategic as it gets for U.K. properties I would expect. HTHBIDI

    Sovereign bases at Akrotiri and Dhekelia will have good access to EU jobs, but not sure you can buy property there.

    Since it's all a fantasy in your sad little head, I will suggest you move here:

    Nice area, good transport links to London.

    That's 60 minutes too close. Have you ever been to Newry?

    Nobody buys "a" property to let for 800k, at least nobody in their right mind... I would be looking at three smaller units for around 250k each with a 50k float for repairs etc.

    If you're looking for a good investment for a home then stick to the nicer areas with some sort feature that keeps them nicer - places like Windsor or Winchester, if you're looking for pure investment stick to places with bouyant rental markets, university towns etc. or maybe holiday towns with reasonably high transit of temp workers. Bournemouth seem to offer a lot of bang and rental return for your buck.

    If you're buying your "forever" house now but want to rent it for a couple of years maybe consider holiday homes. Friend of mine has his gaff on the market for 1.25mil, let's it as an air b'n'b for a grand a time and stays on his yacht. 800k, maybe over two houses, should return around 25-30k each per annum and holiday makers don't generally have enough time to arse up your property.
