Renovation game

YAUGHER MANOR

Queendown Warren Kent

Price: [pound]1.1m

Agent: Cluttons

Tel: 01622 756000

They say: This Grade II*-listed manor house, set in 14 acres, has seven bedrooms and four receptions. It is in need of renovation, but there is planning permission to convert the barn into a separate dwelling with its own large garden.

We say: This manor was home to the same family for 200 years. When the last of them died, 10 years ago, the current vendors bought it for renovation - but never got round to it. It is structurally sound, and with another [pound]300,000 it could be made very comfortable - then you can convert and sell the barn.

An organic farmhouse

HOGGETS

Nr Easthorpe, Essex

Price: [pound]875,000

Agent: Jackson-Stops & Staff

Tel: 01245 467 468

They say: This attractive farmhouse has a lounge, dining room, six bedrooms, a games room, pantry, entrance and rear halls, laundry and study. Outside there is a barn, workshop, summer house, and lodge.

We say: A lot of work is needed here - but it has potential to be a lovely family home.

Is this home your castle?

GLEN TAMAR

Saltash Cornwall Price: [pound]375,000 Agent: Bradleys Tel: 01752 845488 They say: This detached folly dates from the 1920s and has been refurbished to a contemporary design, with an ultra-modern kitchen, bespoke bathroom and lounge with picture windows. It also has three bedrooms, a wet room and a cloakroom. We say: You're getting a lot for your money, and the views are wonderful. But most of the character is on the outside - inside, the rooms are a little boxy. There is a garage, cellar and an outside WC.

The great divide

HIGHBURY GROVE
