A VEHICLE restorer’s dream home can be found in Lincolnshire, with a unique property made for car collecting or vehicle restoring being placed onto the market by a local estate agency.
The barn conversion in High Marnham includes a substantial amount of workshops and garages attached to the property, which are already set up for vehicle maintenance. Richard Watkinson & Partners is offering this distinctive property, to market realising its impressive potential as a vehicle restorer or collectors’ perfect fit.
The property has a guide price of £335,000 and Simon Watkinson, director at Richard Watkinson, was immediately struck by the property’s uniquely multifaceted potential.
This is a really exciting opportunity for anyone looking for more space to house or restore vehicles, be they classic or modern, tractors or cars.
The workshops also have enormous potential with the option for a small business. Currently they are being used for hobby purposes only but there is enormous scope, due to the size, making the space not only useful but profitable.
The house is set in 1.3 acres of land in a beautiful hamlet – the rural setting does not mean that it is isolated, however, with Newark, Nottingham, Lincoln and Retford being within commuting distance.
The hamlet is also very close to the section of the River Trent where a variety of water sports are available, including jet skiing and canoeing. There is also a fantastic local pub and a touring caravan site, both of which are well-attended.
Meg Beckett, who currently owns the property with her husband, moved into the hamlet in 1984 said:
We love the area so we’re not moving far, just down the road to a nearby village – it’s a beautiful part of the country so we decided to stay close by.
What initially attracted us to the property 30 years ago was the impressive land and outbuildings. We have a long held hobby of collecting tractors and restoring old vehicles so we needed the space, which has worked extremely well for us.
The workshops are ideal spaces for restoration and we use some of the outbuildings as garages now for storing vintage vehicles. It’s been the perfect property for us, it’s ideal for car collectors.
The property has four bedrooms, formal gardens as well as a potential grass paddock area and yard.
