|Some of you ask me how many of these
properties are still for sale. The usual answer is "Not
many". However, here is a selection of unusual properties
that have appeareed before in these pages and are still on
Boloquoy, Sanday, ORKNEY, KW17 2BACall: 01856 496000£ 30,000
By far the lowest price on our list over the last year is this dilapidated cottage on Sanday, one of the larger islands in Orkey, so-called for its beautiful sandy beaches. The property could easily be one of the most remote and one with the most potential on our list too. Boloquoy farm cottages stand in approximately an acre of ground and enjoy breathtaking views across the Sanday Sound to Eday, the Calf of Eday and Westray. These former farmworkers cottages are contained within the Category B status of the neighbouring Boloquoy Farm steading. The cottages could be suitable for sympathetic renovation or extension, subject to the necessary planning consents. The small garden is surrounded by a traditional drystone wall and the property has an acre of land for grazing or farming. As it now stands empty, the building is currently without utilities, though mains electricity could be connected from Boloquoy Farmhouse and the agents understand that mains water is also close by. For a member keen to embrace island life and with the time to devote to a ‘project’, this could be a bargain!
The Old Deanery, WellsPrice: £ 2,500,000
Address: Bath & Wells Diocesan Board Of Finance, The Old Deanery , WELLS, United Kingdom, BA5 2UG
This is the first time this extraordinary building has been offered for sale. Set in a magnificent location in the centre of Wells, and with un-rivalled view of the Cathedral, this majestic and historic building has a rich history dating back almost 800 years. From 1230 until 1958 this unique Grade I listed building functioned as the primary residence of 62 cathedral Deans. In recent years it has been used as the Diocesan Offices of the Dean and Chapter of Wells Cathedral.
Occupying over 18,000 square feet, the building is certainly spacious and holds a treasure trove of rare and remarkable features, including gargoyles on the parapets, wonderful stained-glass, Jacobean panelling, Tudor fireplaces and secret stone staircases. The south and west ranges date from the 13th century and were renovated by Dean Bathurst (1670-1704) in a neo-classical style. The first floor drawing room is lavish and opulent. The north range dates from the 15th century with impressive rooms, medieval fireplaces and oriel windows. The east range was built in the late-16th century, with features including 17th-century panelling, naïve ionic pilasters around the doors and an ancient fireplace. In addition to the old Deanery itself, included in the sale is the Court (originally a separate building), the old stable block and the Victorian education wing.
To the west and north are magnificent Tudor style gardens, carefully recreating some of the planting established there in the 16th century by Dean William Turner, sometimes known as the Father of English botany.
This splendid and historic building has enormous potential for a range of new uses and given its prominent location adjacent to the Cathedral, needs a sympathetic and understanding new owner.

The Hovel, Ludgershall, Duck Lane, Aylesbury, United Kingdom, HP18 9XZPrice: £ 400,000
This building is being advertised as 'medieval'. In fact it's only 200 years old, but its interest is enormous. It would greatly benefit from purchase by a SPAB member who understands its importance. Research and dendrochronology have shown the house to date from around 1812. It's an exceptional rare survival of a little-altered squatter's cottage, probably built by its occupant. Thousands were constructed but very few now survive. It also has an extremely unusual solid-thatched roof - the only surviving example in the UK on a domestic building known to the Society's Director. 'Solid thatch' has no roof void or rafters, instead layers of brushwood lie beneath the outer coat of thatch. In addition, it has the most rudimentary form of timber framing, with posts set directly into the earth. It is listed grade II but should be grade I. The property has two bedrooms, gardens of approximately 0.23 acres, and a summerhouse.
