This is local to me, and I love it. I'd probably change the decor, but I love the property and it's layout.

Ideally, I'd remove the double garage and reposition it in the back garden, but conservation area plus listing might forbid.
Each to their own but I think that's dreadful.

Probably the most unhomely place I've ever seen on here. It looks like the offices of very expensive divorce lawyers in London.

The garden is also tiny for £800K and seems to be overlooked by lots of new builds.

I know, it’ll be a tight squeeze - there’s just me, my wife and three cats, so we might have to do a loft conversion….

As for a thread of its own, I should probably do one, but progress will be slow as it’s my sort of retirement project (only 53, so not past it yet!) and we’re not starting it until the Spring.

I’ve had my own bespoke kitchen firm for some time, so we’re really going to go for it in there - think: island as big as Guernsey, separate larder and pantry, booth seating etc.

The first job is this:


Going to make it into a workshop and garage
Stunning place, love to see more of it. Perfect car storage potential too, in a Ferris Bueller day off kinda of way biggrin

I love the area (well, Lymington proper rather than where this property is), but this does nothing for me. There was one for about £6-7 MM on this thread a few months ago by the sea that was much nicer IIRC.

You could probably make a killing if you got permission to build execuboxes / retirement bungalows on some of the 130 acres.

This place is an extraordinary mix of the sublime and the horrendous. Rear aspect is a disgrace! But still seems like a lot of house for £750k.

No idea what Wisbech is like - not terribly nice, judging from the property prices.

Yep, I like that too.

Size wise, it's on the edge of what is practical for me, size wise - borderline too big, but I reckon I could make it work.
Apparently it has an "Attached Tripe Garage" - is this the new height of luxury in modern living, somewhere to keep your tripe? smile

It's like someone started to build a much larger house, but ran out of money and had to make it smaller to finish it, and then got some new builders in to do the back wall without them looking at the front.

This was in the papers the other day:94 acres,stunning views of LochLomond (if pic 15 is to be believed) & your own 16th century medieval (confused ) ruin,1.3-1.5 mil & its yours.
Not sure about the layout, it may be a bit of a faff

I'm not saying I wouldn't change the decor, mind, but the house itself really does it for me. Garden is small, admittedly.

Very nicely done although I think the house looks a bit odd to me - has a vibe of extended within an inch of it's life and every square cm filled to fit in with the planners. I love the outdoors though and it's a nice area I know well.

This will get snapped up by the horsey brigade without a shadow of doubt in fairly quick order I would assume. When we were looking a few years back (quite close to this area) anything with land that could be used for horses and especially country houses with existing stables/menages etc, sold extremely quickly. We bought a house with a stupid logburner only heating setup and a 3 acre field, it came on the market and we quickly viewed it and put an offer in which was accepted. Despite us jumping really quickly (I spent my life on the phone/internet trying to find somewhere quicjkly) it had still been viewed by two horsey type people before us and luckily discounted on the basis of our field wasn't ideal for horses (let alone the stupid heating system!).

That's one of those properties that makes me scroll back up to see which thread I'm in. Could be either. smile

If the only field available is the one that looks like it belongs to the house (to the side of the stabling) then there really isn't enough land to keep more than one horse (at a pinch) unless you have them stabled for a large part of the year.
And I agree, the house looks like it's used up all it's potential.

My map isn't that accurate. As it's so far away from London it just says "there be dragons" wink

Rutland is the smallest county in England and is only 18 x 17 miles.
Very pretty as well, recommend it as a weekend destination or just a day spent exploring Rutland Water.

Sounds awesome.

How much is it? Not quite what I was looking for in terms of land, but I'm sure we could cope.
