Hi all. I'm looking for a bolt hole, a house that I can take my time to do up. I don't mind, to some extent, where. But it needs to be under £100k . And be freehold . And if at all possible ( I know it's a long shot) be detached. With a garden.
Do any of you know of such a beast?

There's one across the road from us but it's seriously derelict and would be way over your budget, anyhow. And, AFAIK, as I have to tell the numerous people who ask me about it, no, it's not for sale!

Now this one is a serious project!

This is gorgeous but you’d have to get a deal as it’s £125000

On for £105000 but been on since sept 2017 so I’m suuuure you could get it for under £100k!

These kinds of searches are fun!!

The borders have amazing bargains for massive houses and loads of land. It is quite hard to get to though

EmmaC78 Sun 12-Aug-18 09:29:20

Wow, that Bradford one is in a terrible state. I renovate a lot of properties and don't think even I would take that on!

Chickencellar Sun 12-Aug-18 09:44:35

Yep ,get rid of the rubbish though it's probably no worse than any other dump of a house.

The borders one you found looks amazing! Borders are beautiful. Would love to live there if job was no issue.

It looks like it could be fab , worth a look if I'm not too late... the one I liked in Helensburgh has a big naval base nearby, so I wonder if that might impact the views?
I might zoom up and do some snooping!!

EmmaC78 Sun 12-Aug-18 12:24:41

Numpty- the navy base shouldn't affect the views of that property. I don't know the exact location but I am a fairly certain the navy base is further round.

You shouldn't be able to see the naval base from there.

On the flip side it will be very safe lol
