Weekend Holiday Cottage?

Recommended Posts

IMHO it will cost 250k to half a million to do it up, and it will cost 10's of thousands each year to run...

Nice through, but you would need to find a good business use...

Don't most of these end up as nursing homes these days?

There is a similar development just outside cardiff called Cefn Mably Park - a gated development where the manor house was converted into luxury flat 300sq ft+ and some very nice executive houses built to go with it.

It actually works quite well and there may scope for repeating that here ..

Definitely the maintenance cost - looks like Victorian gothic to me. Could be 150 years old. Lots of stonework/mullions where mortar joints have failed - no chance of a quick-double glazing job on any of that. I'd be surprised if the repair costs didn't double the price. But a very nice house nevertheless.

There must be an inner-London authority somewhere that's looking for a residential activity-centre...

It says "Equestrian for sale" at the top, but there's nothing relevant anywhere in the listing. Or does "equestrian" not mean what I think it does?

Property bee shows the price is pretty stable.

Our Welsh HPC contingent could combine FTB/STR funds and live a commune style life maybe?

"A draft scheme dividing the mansion house and stables into 32 apartments is available from the agents.

Discussions have been held with the Local Authority regarding enabling new build development within the grounds.

Prospective purchasers should direct any enquiries in respect of planning to the local Planning Authority. "

But no indication that they have talked with the local listings office about same. This is nuts, unlike planning, Listed building consent is free, so no propspective purchasor is going to complete without doing this

The real advantage of a gated-development is you can lock 'em in at night. None of those feckless dentists, gp's and other assorted weirdos roaming the streets at night.

There's an interesting display of pretty much Zero HPI on these. Check out the prices over time:
