PS Two of a kind in East Molesey

THE BEATLES knocked four terraced houses into one in Help - and started a fashion for fun behind the closed doors of adjoining houses. These two detached villas in East Molesey aren't exactly the same, but there are some quirky parallels: they're next door to each other, both for sale at the same time and both on the market for the same price: pounds 369,950. Numbers 8 and 10 Esher Road are likely to appeal to Mr and Mrs who "need some space", swinging couples who don't want to shell out the bus fare, and those who want Granny to knock before she enters. At a push, they could be joined together, though you would need planning permission, says Kate Arney from selling agent Townends (020 8979 7773): "You could unite the houses" - ensuring they don't tumble down, of course.
