Remarkable Properties: Development Opportunities

 REMARKABLE PROPERTIES – Development Opportunities:

The Scottish country house market is currently what Estate Agents describe as “a little slow”.  As with expressions like “bright” meaning “north facing” slow can be decoded as “rock bottom”.  First the recession knocked the stuffing out of a lot of people.  Now the Referendum has introduced a new uncertainty to the market.  What a great time to be a buyer!  You have the pick of a fabulous bunch of remarkable properties.

These properties are brought to you by GLM, specialists in the conservation, upgrading and alteration of buildings new and old.  We are NOT agents.  Let us undertake a detailed professional building condition survey for you and assist you through the process of making one of these properties your own.

New properties become available all the time and not all are formally on the market. If you would like to discuss your requirements in detail, please register your contact email and telephone number.

d284cbcb3b3d12a3230bbe165a22da45f0b92c90_645_430No 1 The Thames, London, Sheerness ME3

Price: £500,000

What a unique investment opportunity!

DrenaghDrenagh Estate, Limavady, Northern Ireland BT49

Price: POA

We don’t generally feature properties in Northern Ireland, but perhaps we should.  This one, at the very tip top of the market, has had money lavished on it, maybe more than the price reflects.  This is an unusual proposition and the person who ultimately buys it will be someone who can afford to “think out of the box”.  They will also, no doubt, want to look pretty carefully at what they are getting into.

imgresDundarave Estate, County Antrim, Northern Ireland, BT57 8ST

Price: £5,000,000

Here’s another astonishing property in Northern Ireland.  It is as classic a building as you could possibly find, the very zenith of mid-nineteenth century good taste.  A member of the London Reform Club would feel very at home here but perhaps that’s to be expected as it was designed by the same architect.  It comes with a chunky price tag which might be mitigated by the value of the land that goes with it.  A more civilised property would be hard to imagine.
