Nuclear Bunker For Sale

Located in Cumbria

By Auction: 25th July 2024

Guide: £15,000.

^^ ROC Nuclear Bunker ^^

^^ Land to the North East of Dent Station ^^

^^ Sedbergh, Cumbria LA10 5RF ^^

This is the latest in our list of nuclear bunkers (or as the former service personnel knew them as: ROC ~ UKWMO Bunkers).

This bunker has several interesting extras, such as additional land and off-street parking.

^^ ROC Nuclear Bunker ^^

^^ Land to the North East of Dent Station ^^

^^ Sedbergh, Cumbria LA10 5RF ^^

But the most valuable addition to this underground bunker is the fact it has a LANDLINE TELEPHONE and the option to connect BROADBAND. That is an extremely rare element that has, at some significant cost to the owner, been kept alive and connected to this very day. In our humble opinion at Unique Property Bulletin, the LANDLINE and BROADBAND is a very good use of initiative from the owner. Why? On so many levels with modern broadband, this underground bunker becomes vastly more appealing.

Tillicoultry Police Station

For Sale

Guide: £120,000.

We Suggest: £90,000

Here is our latest feature article. This time about the many former police stations for sale.

This one is located is a place surrounded by the Ochil Hills and Wallace Monument. The actual building could do with a bit of added sparkle. Maybe a Tardis or Dalek.

^^ Police Boxes Are Also For Sale ^^

But today we feature a modest police station,

Or as we often say:

A neatly arranged pile of bricks…

Guide £120,000. We Would Suggest: £90,000.

Guide £120,000. We Would Suggest: £90,000.

It is tempting to think the stripping of this structure back-to-bricks was possibly due to an unwelcome infestation. Daleks maybe?

Founded Unique Property Bulletin

2 Years After This Photo Was Taken

As you may appreciate from the old photo above, our editor, Russ McLean has a soft spot for these old police stations and has mentioned Unique Property Bulletin buying this project. At £90,000 it would be a very good price and is only one hour from our current HQ. But then again, the purpose of Unique Property Bulletin is to help YOU find your favourite style of unusual home…

^^ Tillicoultry Police Station ^^

A very modest structure

But in an outstandingly beautiful part of the country

& a LOT of property for the money!

But our main thesis today is that there is a LOT of property for little money to the extent that many buyers will have a much sought after desire to be free-of-mortgage realised if they purchase this hidden gem…

Thanks to an alert reader, we may now understand why Tillicoultry Police Station in Moss Road has been stripped back to brick…

Here at Unique Property Bulletin we have owned buildings where flooding is an issue. We raised the floors by a foot (concrete) and built substantial flood defences around the perimeter. All valuable items were upstairs. Downstairs was minimal furnishing (actually used for sleeping ~ with flood alarms fitted). That cured the flood problem in Argyll. Here in Tillicoultry it is a challenge to consider what the best remedy would be.

UPDATE (Since we were alerted about the local flooding issue)…

It is also worth mentioning that given the flood local folk endured, maybe go a bit easy with the haggling for this building. It would have been traumatic for the owners and neighbours. It is an important matter, to be aware of how distressing a local flood can be (we know, we’ve had it happen).  Also worth chatting with the neighbours about maybe altering the police station (if you buy it) by extending out the back so that there is a bigger FIRST FLOOR, with a significant amount at the back built over open air (on pillars) for car parking on the ground floor area. If you have your living accommodation and your home-office/studio on the upstairs first-floor, you will be much safer and your home will survive better if there is another flood.

Leave the pre-existing ground floor minimally furnished. You may well set a good template on how to survive the worries and hazards that come with ever increasing numbers of floods.

PLEASE can (the rare and small minority of) new readers of Unique Property Bulletin NOT do a drive-by-trolling. YES we know about Global Warming and the concerns about rising water levels. But rather than make some rude comment, please be constructive. Build a new house with an imaginative engineering design that is on some form of jack-up leg system to protect you from flooding risks. Or a myriad of alternative flood-protection constructions. Thanks.

Dunbeath Castle Estate

An Example of Possibly Splitting Titles

Into Affordable Segments

 

^^ Dunbeath Castle ^^

From Rightmove headlines it looks like the price is £25 million.

Not so.

There are 20 buildings on this estate.

So the castle would be more like £9 million.

With the other houses being capable

of sales between £175,000 and £495,000

For example, if we advised that this estate can be title-split at HM Land Registry/Registers of Scotland, for the values at £175,000 to £495,000 we would wager that might change the perspective of folk at either end of the house/castle buying spectrum.

=> PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT go off and aggravate Savills estate agents with title-splits. It is highly likely the trustees representing the former owner, who has sadly passed away, will just want ONE cheque for the £25,000,000.

What the directors at Unique Property Bulletin Ltd (formerly Argyll Group plc) have managed in past instances where an empty “Grade A” listed building is art risk of deteriorating (and they are significantly more costly to maintain). We simply buy the whole estate and sell each house, plus the ideal of an acre each to those who have lived on the estate (as a priority because this is their home).

=> Our philosophy based on real-world cases is that most folk can happily keep ONE house in good order. But 21 houses AND an iconic castle? There are very few folk can manage that without suffering a significant amount of stress and anguish. So we believe that title-splitting is a good thing (when surpluses are KEPT ONSITE and reinvested into the Grade A listed buildings). In the case of Dunbeath Castle, there is an important peatland project that will also need significant funding too.

Besides, it is close to government policy in Scotland to reform land ownership so that all folk get a “fair” bite at the cherry.

Here at Unique Property Bulletin we are non-political.

=> Our prime concern is to avoid Grade A listed buildings degrading into splendid ruins!

Hence this title-split article.

If we start in reverse order and on the basis of title splits, here is a sample of the 20 buildings that MIGHT be capable of title-splitting into 22 separate items (contact Unique Property Bulletin NOT Savills if anything gets your unique property taste buds tingling. Our contact details are: click here.


EXAMPLE OF A TITLE-SPLIT

Our Valuation? Just £175,000…

^^ Sandy Cove Cottage ^^

^^ Part of Dunbeath Castle Estate ^^

Worth £175,000?

This is how the directors of Unique Property Bulletin have saved other “Grade A” listed buildings, including “Grade A’s” in Caithness, from being vandalised and becoming derelict. Ironically, 5 Grade A buildings in the far north for which we project managed the renovation were formerly the property of the same clan that used to own Dunbeath Castle. That earlier renovation from the worry of dereliction was regarded by the local community as a success. This is all we want: to help preserve iconic and historic buildings that have unique and pretty impressive characteristics.

=> As for the other 20 houses on the Dunbeath Castle estate, we are NOT going to suggest valuations as the next step in that respect is to have a proper RICS survey on each home.

Also there is the modest matter of our directors rustling up £25 million from our former Argyll Group plc HNWs for a few months (HNW means a High Net Worth person).

Maybe let us have your thoughts on what you would value some of the 20 houses if they were title-split and sold separately for an affordable amount?

If you have never lived on a magnificent estate, it is not suitable for everyone, but if you become beguiled by life in these places, it really does get into your DNA.

In a good way.

***


Simply put, the headline of £25 million will put off many buyers.

But if we rephrase that as £9 million for the caste, £5 million for the 28,000 acres and…

=> Castle Estate homes for between £175,000 and £495,000.

Then that puts an entirely different perspective on this matter.

It ensures a much faster sale. Less likelihood of building becoming dilapidated and then ruinous: eventually ending up on the Buildings at Risk Register: Click Here.
