Ashleworth Manor

Price: £ 1,650,000



Gorgeous house dating back to the 12th century. "It is believed that the house was the simmer residence of the Abbot of St. Augustine's at Bristol, now Bristol Cathedral. His order of Augustine Canons owned the whole manor of Ashleworth, it having been donated to the Abbey much earlier by the Earl of Berkeley in the 12th Century. The discovery in 2015 by a metal detectorist of a Papal Bulla in the manor garden helps cement this belief." The chimneys were inserted/added in the 15th century. The most recent addition is the wing added in 1903. The house is in fine condition, however, and subject to the necessary planning permission, the attics might now be integrated into the main accommodation.

Boloquoy, Sanday, ORKNEY, KW17 2BA

Call: 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 Hovel, Ludgershall, Duck Lane, Aylesbury, United Kingdom, HP18 9XZ

Price: £ 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.
