    If it meant the perfect house being affordable that was previously not affordable and I wasn't planning on selling anytime soon then I'd consider it. I'd want to get it for a bloody good price though.

    No way.

    There are quite a few going through new estates around where I live. When I was house hunting I crossed out any houses that were too close. This house is about a radial kilometre away and that is about as close as I'm comfortable with.

    Default Would you buy a house with an electricity pylon next door

    Nope. No way. I think I remember seeing the doco on Red Symons about his son who had brain tumour at 4 and his cot as a baby used to face a wall that was adjacent to a small electricity sub power station.

    Nope.
    My friends live about 50 metres from one and you can hear it humming.

    Aside from the health concerns it just reduces the pool of people who would buy the house by too much.

    No way. Health concerns aside, I would never buy a house just because I loved it but the position wasn't great. You can always renovate/extend a not-so-perfect house but you can never change the location it's in. If you had a change of heart it would be very difficult to sell.

    Way off topic, but I keep reading this as 'eclectic Python'...

    I built them. As much as I know it's safe I probably wouldn't.

    I grew up in a house with big power lines right next to it. So close that you could hear them buzzing! Can't say it was ever an issue.

    Thanks everyone for taking the time to respond. Your all saying what my head knows but my heart got a bit carried away. It was good to hear some impartial advice to help.

    We have decided to let the place go. We have two young kids and desperately trying for a third and if anything health wise happened to them... Even if the science doesn't confirm it was responsible... I would probably never forgive myself.

    I also don't want to need to move down track and end up not being able to sell or sell for less...

    I didn't know about the buzzing though. I think that would drive me a little nuts and feed into my fears of the health implications.

    Fate would have it that another home I had my heart set on that was a bit out of our price range has been re-listed just in our price range so we are going to go look at it one more time in Saturday and make an offer.

    Thanks again for the advice 😀👍😀
