You would think, if a member of the agency's staff own the property, that they could manage to spell paddock.

Fuckwits.

I wouln't want to sink that amount of cash inti the second one given it relies on rented grazing as it's worthless as an equestrian property without it

? The smart money started buying farmland then. Prices rocketed, doubled at least per hectare. 

I meant equestian properties, not woodland or farm land, but i did not read the link so may be talking shit in this matter.

I've noticed a lot of very large estates near me coming on the market in the last month or two. Way more than usual -I'm talking top end with prices up to the crazy levels, like this:

https://www.rightmove.co.uk/property-for-sale/property-63926265.html

This is very much old money as you call it. It used to be owned by a prime minster, no idea who owns it now, probably some aristocrat.

These have been coming on in Leics for a year or so.High cost of keeping nags also doesn't help.

 

genereally wifey's who like nags aren't cheap to keep either.Just sayin''..

 

obviously,if the buyers don't like keeping nags,they're not really going to pay a premium for stables.Bodes well for dog food manuracturers.

I did read an interesting statistic about these stately homes/large houses recently, the cost of running them is about 1% of the purchase price per year. I suppose it's about the same as a normal house, but to put it into perspective for that house I posted, that'd be £140k a year on upkeep of the house alone i.e. just maintaining it (not many any changes).

I can well believe that, bit like owning a Ferrari, if you cant afford the yearly servicing charges you cant really afford the car.

That's a cost average and probably correct over a long enough timeline spunko.But there's every chance punters could walk into a roof repair/heating/rewiring that could cost tens of thousands..Particualrly the first.

This is also the issue of gardening/cleaning.We have an average 3 bed house and we employ gardener and cleaner.Anything thats a decent size will likely need possibly £10k p.a of services as well.If you've got parkland,then that will need maintaining as well.

For the first few years of our marriage,I did the cleaning/gardening to a very low standard.Eventually,Mrs P sacked me when the kids came along.

 

Edit to add-listing of any sorts adds a lot of hassle and cash to maintenance bills as well.

Her head screamed “no” but £435,000 later they had the keys to the mansion that had been empty for a decade and was riddled with rot, woodworm and mould.

After a complicated refurbishment, Sarah and her husband Graham Swift sold the Yorkshire property for £1.4 million - making a profit of £1 million minus the renovation costs.

from teh first article.10 years at£190k is £2.5 mill lol

'They have never added up the cost'

 

'“A micro brewery and a florist would work well here as it would complement what we do,” says Dan,47, who adds that the hall costs £190,000 a year to run and maintain.'

I think that maintenance and running costs is what people really miss with these.  My house has cost about half a percent a year in total maintenance since I've had it; this is a standard c. 50 year old house that is easy to maintain; add in  running costs probably takes that slightly over 1% (mostly council tax). 

Here is my (unrealistic) dream house at £7m.

To run and maintain though; I  would guess £200k - £300k a year so you want another £4m - £6m on top to provide the income to run it. 

To build in a margin of comfort: to buy a £7m old house youe should have £14m in the bank.

I won't be buying it! (I wouldn't want the staff management headache anyway).

yeash shes lost a lot of cash on that place.unless the TV work covered the cost.Big hosues are moeny pits.

I haven't seen her on TV for years - didn't she coin it in with some online estate agent that subsequently went bust? I don't know if her involvement was anything more than image rights, but I'm sure she made a pretty penny off it.

This is very much old money as you call it. It used to be owned by a prime minster, no idea who owns it now, probably some aristocrat.

Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman died in April 1908, leaving Hunton Court to a cousin, James Campbell-Bannerman, with whose descendants it remained until 2008, when it was bought ‘in need of renovation’ by the current vendors.

No mention here either http://jpsrenewableenergy.co.uk/hunton-court

 

There might be a name in Planning permissions somewhere but CBA at the moment.

Suspect it's not a footballer though.

Random website has her at $3mn net wealth.Which given her exposure on TV seems low but then she's made some poor investments I guess eg Tepilo/My Single friend.

https://propertyindustryeye.com/tv-star-sarah-beenys-online-firm-tepilo-reports-losses-of-over-2m-as-debts-rise/

Online agent Tepilo ended its last financial year with a loss of almost £2.3m and owing nearly £5m to creditors, with amounts due within 12 months.

At the weekend, Tepilo had 1,326 properties available for sale and seven for rent on Rightmove.

Don't think I've ever used it other than a cursory "the what".

I've only really had a play with On the market today. That advert must be melting my brain.

Sounds like her worst investment has been her husband: https://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/lifestyle/sarah-beeny-reveals-why-she-is-saying-goodbye-to-rise-hall-1-9743904

Quote

Her husband, artist Graham Swift, fell in love with the decaying mansion and despite her better judgement, she agreed they should have it.

“It was his dream really. Graham has dreams and I make them happen,” she said.

Great tits, high earning submissive. Where can I get one?
