Another one in that SW area we were discussing the other week - if it'd been prime Scotland there'd be bigger numbers at the top of the ad., I guess.

Lovely thing, much wine cellaring!

I moved from this area last year. Countryside is lovely but its cold and rainy most of the time. Nearest town is Girvan which is a dump.

This is what we sold in same valley. https://www.onthemarket.com/details/8975885/

Thank you, lovely house spoiled by local land owner getting planning for houses in field opposite, totally spoiling the view. We moved just as first application was rejected.

Yes, an old VR box, still emptied daily. House had been village shop/post office in its 350 year history.

That’s a really nice traditional Scottish cottage*, unlike a lot of the dire ones that have been constructed since the sixties allo over Scotland - bungalows with broad span, shallow-pitched roofs, huge picture windows and pink harled walls eek

Cool smile

My village has a cottage with the same kind of box.

Where did you move to, just out of pure nosiness - no exactly locations needed!

Been waiting for one of these to come on that is 'interesting' - they look so stunning but often are a bit crap. This one is quite mad, but I 'think' I really like it - rightmove.co.uk/properties/116539283#/?channel=RES_BUY
I'm into this. I think the "wraparound" kitchen might actually work quite well, hard to see what else you'd put in a small circular room. Would be changing the tiles in the living area though.
As am I.

Freakin' awesome. I *love* that place yes
Agree. That's quite close to perfection.
Surprised there is so much love for this tbh!

The kitchen has been done well but apart from that these houses are fairly common in Kent. We have worked on around 10 in the last 15 years! I have a current client who has an awesome oast that we have extended and modernised for him.

I've seen a few of these too (shamefully I have family near Faversham redface), but I haven't seen many where the building attached to the oast is quite as attractive or well-proportioned as the timber framed barn here. The ones I have seen either have a more modern building with an awkward narthex in between, or have tried to get the whole house in the oast (which doesn't really work).

Put up for sale by the CEO of Shell, so we know why it's for sale as well:

He won’t get anything near that for £5.5M over here - well not within commute of his new HQ.

Royal Dutch Shell are moving their HQt o London, and renaming to Shell plc, having fallen out with the Dutch government.

No, the Amsterdam listing stays, unlike the FTSE the AEX is open for foreign company's as well.

The board + a few staff members will move (+/- 12 FTE), and Shell loses the "Royal" title.

Oof, that's gotta hurt DeltonaS, you seem to hate the UK judging by some of your less lucid posts.
