This is the latest in our list of nuclear bunkers (or as the former service personnel knew them as: ROC ~ UKWMO Bunkers).

This bunker has several interesting extras, such as additional land and off-street parking.

^^ Land to the North East of Dent Station ^^

But the most valuable addition to this underground bunker is the fact it has a LANDLINE TELEPHONE and the option to connect BROADBAND. That is an extremely rare element that has, at some significant cost to the owner, been kept alive and connected to this very day. In our humble opinion at Unique Property Bulletin, the LANDLINE and BROADBAND is a very good use of initiative from the owner. Why? On so many levels with modern broadband, this underground bunker becomes vastly more appealing.

^^ Is This The Next Unique Property Bulletin Project? ^^

We Have Managed These Types of Project Before.

This weekend, 9th and 10th March 2024, we have a special feature article. It follows on from the article we wrote in 2016 about the deteriorating Noss Head Lighthouse Station. A group of 24 Unique Property Bulletin readers ended up buying Noss Head Lighthouse Station and renovating the buildings. That was an example of successful Unique Property mischief and adventures made real. Now we spotted a derelict village by the sea. There are 34 dwellings. Each works out at £8,500 after legal conveyancing and title registration fees. 34 people/couples would have their own house in a magnificent location for less than the price of a second hand car. Of course there is a lot more to this. Attached are photos and the initial feature article.

These are the first steps, especially the Planning Permission files and drawings for you to enjoy…

Wet Wet Wet

Water Tower


Sorry, This Is Now

SOLD

The notes below are archived for your reference in case this water tower comes back onto the sale market.

How Do We Choose Candidate Properties?

Several ways!

Here are just a couple in this latest update on our social media feed…

Marti Pellow just happened to be singing in the background.

This brilliant musician may have helped find you a unique home…

 

^^ Perry Water Tower ^^

The Drive, Perry, Huntingdon PE28 0SS

Photo Courtesy of the very decent Simon Judd and the kindly host, Geograph.

We are scratching the old wooden top heads here! The Perry Water Tower SOLD last year was £290,000. Now, it is for sale at £350,000. That is £60,000 more. Yet does NOT appear to include a successful Planning Permission (to convert into a home) or any meaningful expenditure to warrant a steep £60,000 profit. Especially from our experience, this water tower is already at the top of it’s value (they can go for less that £100,000).

So we would CAUTION our readers…

PLEASE DO YOUR DUE DILIGENCE.

We would ONLY expect this water tower to be worth £60,000 more (just 11 months later) if the intermediate owner HAD successfully ADDED the crucial and valuable Planning Permission.

We have looked and can find NO record of a granted or approved Planning Permission on Perry Water Tower.

Just some nice photos of what Perry Water Tower MIGHT look like (click here).

But someone, likely the new owner will have to do a lot of hard and expensive work SECURING THE VITAL PLANNING PERMISSION to convert this FROM a water tower TO a home. That is the red-tape that MUST be done (plus extensive and expensive BUILDING WARRANTS), before even just one house-conversion brick may be added or subtracted.

The fact that this water tower has been hanging about since 4th December 2023 on Rightmove UNSOLD after having been sold already for around £290,000 on 10th May 2023 does not auger well.

=> If any of our readers can help us, and research a bit more on the Local Authority planning website to see if there has even been a “pre-app” planning permission enquiry and share your findings in the comments  section on our social media feeds (click here and scroll downward until you find the relevant post), that would be very much appreciated). Thank you.

Consequently, and with all we have seen so far at Perry Water Tower and much of which is included here and on our social media review page, we don’t like advising this sort of thing, but it is based on 37 years tapping away at this keyboard and the experience from many very helpful Unique Property Bulletin readers,..

We do NOT value this water tower at the current guide of £350,000. We value Perry Tower in the current condition and with NO Planning Permission at approximately…

£249,000.

(Archived For Safety: Click Here)

Even then, that is a high price for high tower when compared with other, similar sales. The last water tower of similar construction/style that one our readers went to bid on was guided at around £40,000 and sold for £101,000. Even at £101,000 the eyebrows were raised that £101,000 was a very good result for the seller. So here the current £350,000 wishful price comes from is difficult to fathom.

Update: 19th February 2024

Tillicoultry Police Station

For Sale

Guide: £120,000.

We Suggest: £90,000

Here is our latest feature article. This time about the many former police stations for sale.

This one is located is a place surrounded by the Ochil Hills and Wallace Monument. The actual building could do with a bit of added sparkle. Maybe a Tardis or Dalek.

^^ Police Boxes Are Also For Sale ^^

But today we feature a modest police station,

Or as we often say:

A neatly arranged pile of bricks…

^^ Tillicoultry Police Station ^^

Guide £120,000. We Would Suggest: £90,000.

Guide £120,000. We Would Suggest: £90,000.

It is tempting to think the stripping of this structure back-to-bricks was possibly due to an unwelcome infestation. Daleks maybe?

Founded Unique Property Bulletin

2 Years After This Photo Was Taken

As you may appreciate from the old photo above, our editor, Russ McLean has a soft spot for these old police stations and has mentioned Unique Property Bulletin buying this project. At £90,000 it would be a very good price and is only one hour from our current HQ. But then again, the purpose of Unique Property Bulletin is to help YOU find your favourite style of unusual home…

^^ Tillicoultry Police Station ^^

A very modest structure

But in an outstandingly beautiful part of the country

& a LOT of property for the money!

But our main thesis today is that there is a LOT of property for little money to the extent that many buyers will have a much sought after desire to be free-of-mortgage realised if they purchase this hidden gem…

Thanks to an alert reader, we may now understand why Tillicoultry Police Station in Moss Road has been stripped back to brick…

Here at Unique Property Bulletin we have owned buildings where flooding is an issue. We raised the floors by a foot (concrete) and built substantial flood defences around the perimeter. All valuable items were upstairs. Downstairs was minimal furnishing (actually used for sleeping ~ with flood alarms fitted). That cured the flood problem in Argyll. Here in Tillicoultry it is a challenge to consider what the best remedy would be.

We feature ALL our updates daily or if we are busy at work, every couple of days, on our social media pages. Please note, Unique Property Bulletin is NOT an estate agency. It is a not-for-profit publication run by volunteers.

Please feel free to “follow”” our Facebook page so you do not miss anything. We cover the ENTIRE UK…


UPDATE (Since we were alerted about the local flooding issue)…

It is also worth mentioning that given the flood local folk endured, maybe go a bit easy with the haggling for this building. It would have been traumatic for the owners and neighbours. It is an important matter, to be aware of how distressing a local flood can be (we know, we’ve had it happen).  Also worth chatting with the neighbours about maybe altering the police station (if you buy it) by extending out the back so that there is a bigger FIRST FLOOR, with a significant amount at the back built over open air (on pillars) for car parking on the ground floor area. If you have your living accommodation and your home-office/studio on the upstairs first-floor, you will be much safer and your home will survive better if there is another flood.

Leave the pre-existing ground floor minimally furnished. You may well set a good template on how to survive the worries and hazards that come with ever increasing numbers of floods.
