Beautiful unspolt house near Bristol, for peanuts.

OK, a sack of peanuts.
But just look at it.... untouched by the white paint and plasterboard vandals... what an absolutely gorgeous house.

Very nice (apart from the hideous carpets & soft furnishings - but hey, no rights or wrongs in personal taste, and not exactly hard to change those)

That is a very large sack of peanuts required though.

Interesting window security. May put people off.

Well, isn’t that just a spectacular home, even has it’s own folly. I wonder if the will consider Canadian $ at par.

That's 500 tonnes of peanuts! While peanuts make a good healthy snack that might be too much of a good thing. It would almost certainly be wiser to invest the money in a nice house near Bristol.

It is nice to see original features not yet ripped out. I'm putting some original features back in my place that weren't there in the first place. They make the place work better.

I thought this thread was about this house: https://www.gth.net/property/rps_gth-bu ... lot/studio. 1.14 acres, great views, guide price £125k, auction this coming Weds, see you there!

Oooh, it has a bread oven. You could live it that while you finish the rest of the house.

No internal pictures though :roll:

Seriously, that could be a lovely place, even though it is pushing the "at what point is it basically a new build with some old masonry" argument.

No internal pictures, easy to explain, there is no internals. :D A bread oven, is that the semi circular structure sticking out of one of the ends?
To me the home looks to be some thing to discover on a country walk, or an artists inspiration. Not some thing to bring back to life unfortunately. It will be knocked down and a new home will be built.

It could be resurrected with a lot of work, but sadly I'm sure that you're right Ron. I doubt that it's listed. :(

Edit - not completely without hope - dig a little deeper and the blurb says "The property is within the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is designated a conservation area.". So hopefully someone will struggle to get PP to flatten it. Nice looking place in it's day, brought back as 1 house it could be lovely in that setting.

I suspect if it stays within the footprint of the original building and uses sympathetic materials a demo and rebuild would sail through planning

Regrettably, I suspect you're right!

And here's another.
GII*.
Long-time owners I'd say.
Check out the lived-in carpets.

Well I suspect I could happily move in there just as it is. After all, it even has CH...
Except that it's 6,000sq ft over four floors, just a little bit large.

Not much garden left, sold off in the 60s I'd guess.
Dining room upstairs: In the corner of the kitchen on the floorplan, and in the dining room, I bet that was a dumb waiter.

Anyway, I hope it doesn't get ruined, 'brought up to date'.
Yours for just six figures.

A lovely survivor.

What a great home, to my eye, it has suffered a bit from deferred maintenance, but that can be over come.

Interesting place. I'm guessing someone did a half-arsed job of "modernising" in Victorian times and added the sashes on the right of the frontage, and never quite got around to doing the rest!

I've checked down the back of the sofa - no spare £1m alas.
