For Sale: Barns for Renovation – Cornwall,UK

23 Jul
July 23, 2012

For sale we have 2 barns for renovation in Cornwall. These stone barns with  commenced planning permission for the conversion into two separate residential dwellings have permission granted for one 4 bedroom and one 3 bedroom residential houses.

The listing on the website doesn’t make it desperately clear how the property is split other than ‘lots 2 and 3 offer the purchaser(s) the opportunity of converting the barns into two separate dwellings, each with full residential planning consent. The conversion plans and a copy of the planning consent can be requested from the selling agents.’

There is no mention of a plot 1, but plots 2 and 3 have further information with ‘each lot having a separate mains water pipe, which has already been brought down the road and are located to the eastern boundary. Should the sale of lots 2 & 3 be split, the arrangements for the division will be made on the ground between all parties concerned.’

The property has an asking price of £350,000 

For Sale: Modern Contemporary House – East Sussex

20 Jul
July 20, 2012

An individual modern contemporary house set in rural countryside with mature gardens and grounds extending to approximately 3 acres. This house enjoys far reaching views across the undulating Tillingham Valley and with it being set well back off a quiet country lane surrounded by woodland you can enjoy the views in peace. There are polished concrete floors with underfloor heating throughout. Much of the internal timber and galvanised steel finishing has been left deliberately unfinished. Floor-to-ceiling glazing, skylights and large windows bring in plenty of light and give views of the surrounding gardens and woodland.

While this may sound and is idyllic it will certainly set you back a few pennies. It was on the market for £2m but you’ll be relieved to know this modern contemporary house could be yours for only £1,950,000. It does come with a swimming pool, hot tub, studio building, Airstream caravan and an American paddle tennis court (No, I had no idea what it was either until I googled it).

It has appeared in the following magazines:

American Architecture magazine DWELL.
The Sunday Times STYLE supplement.
The Independent magazine.
Coast Magazine.

The house will be listed as one of the most architecturally important houses in the country in the next issue of PEVSNER which is printed every 50 years and will be filmed for the new TV series “Inspiring Homes”.

Renovation Project: Church Hall – Isle of Wight

19 Jul
July 19, 2012

An opportunity not to be missed to buy a Church Hall on the Isle of Wight. For sale by Public Auction on July 26th 2012 at The Ageas Bowl, Southampton (Home of Hampshire Cricket).

This splendid Grade II Listed Victorian building is situated in the village of Bonchurch on the edge of the larger town of Ventnor. We believe this to be the first time that the property has been offered for sale having previously served as the village school and in more recent times as the church hall.

The Cottage requires general modernisation and upgrading as does the adjoining hall but has great prospect and potential and lends itself to many projects subjects to obtaining the various and necessary consents. The property has gardens on three sides including a tree planted in 1969 by the late Lord Mountbatten of Burma, Governor of the Isle of Wight.

The approach to both the cottage and adjoining hall is via a concreted path which runs through the mature gardens. The gardens are lovely and incorporate lawned areas together with mature trees and bushes. The surrounding areas and the views are delightfully wooded and offer a real peaceful and tranquil setting. The Church House has its own private enclosed garden again with a small lawn all surrounded by mature trees. There is a small timber pergola area with paving slab stone floor together with space for table and chairs. A substantial natural stone wall borders the garden with the church grounds beyond. Further access to the rear of the property where there is a courtyard area again featuring the natural stone wall of the church.

Guide: £350,000 – £400,000

For Sale: Contemporary House – Cramond, Edinburgh

19 Jul
July 19, 2012

I came across this unique contemporary house on the Knight Frank website. It’s a 5 bedroom house in Scotland, with views across open meadows towards The Firth of Forth.

Unfortunately there is very little information about the property, other than that it is a development on the edge of Cramond and has ‘state-of-the-art family accommodation on two floors with ample private gardens, garaging and dramatic views’.

While it’s nice I don’t think it’s £1,500,000 nice.
