Converted Corn Mill for Sale: Lupton, Cumbria

14 Aug
August 14, 2012

A Grade II Listed (I’m not going out of my way to find Grad II listed buildings) converted corn mill for sale overlooking mill pond with a river running through the gardens.

It was bought lying derelict by the current owners and carefully rebuilt and converted. Now ready for some cosmetic updating this is an opportunity to put your own stamp on a piece of history and  create a beautiful house in a beautiful setting.

Outside there’s a double garage with bathing platform (?) attached to the back as it borders an impressive 0.39 acre mill pond. At the far end is a boathouse and summer house. The gardens  offer a mix of formal and informal, lightly wooded in places with ‘Lupton Beck’ forming the southern border. In all, it has around 1.35 acres.

There is a cobbled parking area to the front of the property, garden with mill stone with Lupton Mill carving. Double garage (6.03m x 5.9m [19’9 x 19’5]) to the rear over the mill pond with a small wooden jetty. A pathway borders the pond and leads to a lightly wooded area with boathouse, store and summerhouse. Lower flagged terrace and large level lawn with mature trees, rear courtyard with log store. Finally a waterfall flowing into ‘Lupton Beck’ which forms the southerly boundary.

The property has a guide price of £725,000, which considering it needs ‘cosmetic updating’ seems a little much to me. However, you can view it here.

Renovation Project: Former School House For Sale – Plymouth,UK

13 Aug
August 13, 2012

A grade II* listed former school house for sale. This property situated in Plympton St Maurice, Plymouth was originally built in 1664 in the Jacobean style which was then renovated at around 1870.

This building could make an absolutely stunning home if it were renovated to its full potential. I particularly like the arches on the ground floor and would look particularly good if they were filled with glass panels so that it could be used as a fully functioning level of the property. That being said, what I and you may think is a good idea is completely different to what planners think is a good idea. For those not aware, the asterisk denotes a particularly important building of more than special interest.

Finally, the building is in a secluded south facing location in a conservation area and the Garden area is mainly laid to lawn together with a large car park for approximately 16 cars.

Offers are invited in the region of £250,000 for the freehold with further details available here.

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.
