5 years ago houses in this village tended to have large gardens and were affordable for the common man; these people are not priviledged, just lived there a long time. - the clue is in "exhausted their savings"
Point 2: to quote John Ruskin "It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay
too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a
lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”
The Holmes went with the lowest bidder !
