Unique Property Bulletin – Latest Addition: 17th October 2019

Apocalypse Abode For Sale

Northamptonshire, NN6 9YE

Guide Price: Offers Over £25,000.

UKWMO Brixworth, Northamptonshire, NN6 9YE

Photo By Sync Below

This is the sixth underground bunker from the former Royal Ordnance Corps (ROC) United Kingdom Warning & Monitoring Organisation (UKWMO) featured for sale on this website. Our founder actually bid on one of these when the MoD were selling them off in the 1990s. The long tube you need to descend down into the bowels of the earth give a dark foreboding feeling.

Not just because it is dark underground, but the realisation that…

The men and women who served in the ROC faced the very real threat of never seeing their wives, husbands, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons, daughters, and grandchildren ever again. Grim. Distressing.

The Apocalypse Sword of Damocles that ROC corps members lived through was not the cheery kind where even Bruce Willis gets a good ending and Liv Tyler lives happily ever after. No this is real Botticelli stuff. Poor old astrologer Russell Grant gets ring 8 with dodgy politicians and MPs going in at number 9, down Dante’s Inferno (here). Crikey, the end of the world looks far worse than just getting a little bit dead!

The Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse: Death, Famine, War and Conquest.

Viktor Vasnetsov. Painted in 1887.

So what is it that brings such huge amounts of media interest with our fairly obscure website here receiving 10,000, 20,000 and up to 50,000 visitors to the dedicated “sale” page (here)?

There are the massed ranks of “preppers” as detailed further down this page for the previous sale of UKWMO Brundall (now sold).

We also had a long chat with one of our bunker owning friends and their story was wonderful and charming. Quite a dichotomy. Here is their account of many years ownership of an apocalypse abode…

This Unique Property Bulletin reader loved to go camping in the family tent, but the kids were none too keen. Too wet and cold. So when he bought one of these underground UKWO bunkers, the holiday dynamc and enthusiasm changed. When he and his wife got caught in the rain, rather than have the children miserable, they got to go below ground to a real-life adventure place and play video games in the relatively warm and dry bunker. Parents, please resist the temptation to close and lock the bomb -proof hatch if your kids misbehave. Camping is supposed to be fun, not an open invite for social services!

From this end of the Unique Property Bulletin keyboard, good luck if you are looking to buy this underground bunker in Northamptonshire, and maybe invest in an old submarine periscope for the kids to keep them entertained below decks whilst you and/or your partner get rained on in the chilly, windy tent!

Can Unique Property Bulletin Help To Cure Your Brexit Headaches?

A solution for UK residents wanting to live and/or work in Europe. Unhindered.

We are none too keen on touching one of the most toxic debates in 50 years. But several of our readers have asked for help. It just so happens that our sister organisation: Unique Property Club has been looking at a European gem to buy. These unusual projects that our small band of 365 members have been buying + renovating + having great fun with has been active in the UK since 1997. The members have been actively looking at amazing places such as this to buy for our project number 31…

Unique Property Club Adventure For 2020. Moated Chateau in France

As a result, our website founder and general legal beagle has been scouring UK + EU law to see if need to search whether for grannies were born in Ireland so we could claim dual nationality like 11,000 other UK citizens have done this past year.

An Old Photo of Russ McLean, During Service on the Island of Islay.

As around 20 to 30 of our 365 core of Unique Property Club (UPC) members partake in each project and we have three on the go just now, that would mean 60 to 90 of our UPC crew chasing Davina McCall and Long Lost Relatives (here) to help find their Granny McGinty from County Donegall.

Rest easy Davina. Russ has this. Long before he hung up his handcuffs, Strathclyde Police trained this young plod well. Anyone who works in law will likely advise you that it is not a case of knowing every law, but being able to find the relevant passages of statute and precedent. This publication’s editor may well have found a solution for those who live and work in the UK to be able to also live + work + holiday, relatively unhindered in the EU once the B-word fades into history…

In deference to both Brexit supporters and Remainers, here at Unique Property Bulletin, we are none too keen on politicians of any flavour. The charity we helped to register has been treated dreadfully by politicians. So we are profoundly apolitical. The article above is given in good faith. Readers will by necessity need to educate themselves as to their position living abroad in the EU. If in doubt, please can you obtain professional advice to satisfy yourself as to the veracity of details and sources above when combined with your own situation. Thanks.

UKWMO BRUNDALL FOR SALE

NOW UNDER OFFER

The Nuclear Bunker Phenomenon at Unique Property Bulletin

For some reason that we don’t completely understand, here at Unique Property Bulletin, we have another owner of an underground UKWMO Royal Ordnance Corps (ROS) bunker asking if we can help them sell their hole in the ground. Albeit a very strong hole. Our IT guru reckons the significant number of these bunkers that sell through our website is to do with internet algorithms and the fact that when we feature one of these unusual underground abodes, 10,000 preppers (here) and subterranean sanctuary seekers click our page.

UKWMO Nuclear Bunker Brundall, Norfolk, East Anglia

Going down. Approximately 15 feet below the surface is an underground abode…

UKWMO Brundall, Norwich, Norfolk

Today is exactly 80 years since World War 2 broke out. By the end of that horrendous period in history, the nuclear bomb age had dawned.

Whatever problems we think we have today and during the current UK/EU raging debate, we are still a very long ways off of what our grandparents and great-grandparents must have worried about that fateful day on 3rd September 1939.

UKWMO Stations Were Built In The Last Century. Different Times. Unfathomable Horror.

Here in 2019, maybe we are a lot better off than the current newspapers might have us fear. Earlier this year, the founder of this website received a bang on the head when a CalMac crew member on the ferry to Arran left hazard out on the deck. Russ fell backwards over the item and got a bang to the head against the steel hull of the ship. Unfortunately, that deteriorated over the next few hours and resulted in emergency hospitalisation for a traumatic brain injury which has taken half a year to repair. For several months our other Unique Property Bulletin team members have been updating this website whilst the old fella recovers. On being alerted to the latest bunker owner seeking help our boss said:-

“There is no way I could or would leave my family and crawl down a hole like that to scratch out a few extra months and die in a big luxury coffin room whilst my family were incinerated above ground. In those circumstances I would wish to remain with my family and friends in the last of the fresh air. If we go in a nuclear war, we go together”.

He then put this photograph and words on his Facebook timeline. It is the loch at Noss Head Lighthouse Station where Unique Property Bulletin and the publication’s property club had a great adventure in 2018…

Noss Head Lighthouse Loch. Photo From Russ McLean.

There are a large number of folk interested in UKWMO bunkers. The team here at Unique Property Bulletin wish them luck. But for many, the option of living in a nuclear bunker, especially the generation that lived through the 1960s where they had nuclear drills at primary school, the thought of dying underground without family beside them is utterly unbearable…

Growing Up At Primary School In The 1960s

Official survival advice from being burnt alive?

Go hide under a desk!

Great protection when 23,000 tons of TNT is dropped on your head.

The nightmares of friends and family being burnt appear to last a lifetime. The old man’s kid brother was dying in a burns ward at hospital in the 1960s during these trauma inducing atomic war drills and tests at school. So when we speak to him about these nuclear bunkers, he goes a bit quiet.

Official UK Nuclear Bomb Protection From The 1960s. 

Kind of difficult sometimes to enthuse about these places.

But we promised to help the owner sell his place, so here we are.

Inner Sanctum Conversion, Devon

5 Bedroom, Detached House For Sale

Guide: £799,000

Here is an amazing conversion from utilitarian structure to a highly efficient eco-home with air source heat pumps, air circulation units and underfloor heating throughout. The property has been insulated to a high specification. Added to which, there are green roof and embankment walls.

Inner Sanctum, Fore Street, Bere Alston, Yelverton, Devon PL20 7AB

A feature of this property is the enclosed internal quadrangle providing ultimate privacy and brings daylight flooding into the rest of the home. But when you drive up to the front door the secret sanctuary behind this unassuming entrance and garage is a delight hid from sight.

Inner Sanctum, Fore Street, Bere Alston, Yelverton, Devon PL20 7AB

The internal, private quadrangle garden is a prime design feature of this house. The scale and design wonders that lay behind the gentle, undulating grass-covered embankments are almost worthy of a location spotter to commend this as a candidate to feature in the next 007 instalment of that iconic film franchise.

East Anglian Chapel in Great Snoring

Guide: £375,000

This is a former chapel, converted to provide three bedrooms with the master abode having an ensuite.

The Loke, Fakenham Road, Great Snoring, Norfolk, NR21 0HQ

The Unique Property Club just bid to buy a similar church and we were endeavouring to explain one of the best ways of resolving the issue of putting a second storey into the existing structure. Particularly in a way that does not spoil, or at least minimises the impact in relation to the vaulted high ceilings. This cosy chapel solves that dilemma with style. To the upper left of this photograph, you can see two bedrooms with what is, in effect an inside Juliet Balcony (here). A nice feature.

Converted Water Tower For Sale, Lancashire

Guide Price £375,000

Floors 3 + 4 + 5, Plus Lift & Stair Access.

Water Tower, Pinfold Road, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 2AZ

The current owner of this water tower bought it in 2011 and has invested a great amount of time, money and energy into this unique property conversion project. It has been a labour of love.

Water Tower, Pinfold Road, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 2AZ

From our perspective here at Unique Property Bulletin, it is fascinating to study how the owner has added a passenger lift and stairway – with style. This makes it possible for you to own the 3 bedroom apartment on three floors.

Water Tower, Pinfold Road, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 2AZ

An all important passenger lift has been installed.

The water tower flat is luxurious. Though as our own publication is in the middle of a major building renovation, what jumps off of the page is the luxury that the water tower owner has completed all the hard work for you. Getting the architect drawings sorted out. Overcoming the stair/lift access issues without ending up with thighs like superman or legmaster heroine super-hero from a Marvel movie. Getting the planning permission would have been “interesting”. Then the major conversion, with all trades onsite: builders, joiners, scaffolders, roofers, cladders, electricians, plumbers decorators etc. Uniquely for most builds is the purchase and installation of an actual lift!

Water Tower, Pinfold Road, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 2AZ

Indeed to the volunteer crew here at Unique Property Bulletin, were this water tower nearer to our regional HQ in Carnoustie, we would be making the owner an offer as the three bedroom penthouse can readily be converted into a two bed with a home-study. In today’s world of internet business, we have learnt the hard way that the world wide web is very powerful. This publication is having to be deliberately kept on a quieter level until we complete our “Angels’ Share” project and create an annuity to underwrite employee staff wages. This publication is a prime example of the accidental successes that begin in the spare bedroom, garage, or in the cast of this water tower, a home-study.

Water Tower, Pinfold Road, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 2AZ

Back to the narrative of this listing. The current owner bought the shell in 2011 and has dedicated himself to making this a genuinely unique home. We commend him on a top quality and simply amazing outcome.

There is a lounge, kitchen, dining room, bathroom, and three bedrooms. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom. There would also appear to be an extra bit of space above which you might like to chat to the owner about as that has some interesting potential! The standard of work is high and whoever buys this towering project will have a genuinely unique home ready to move into.

Garden Space Also Included

Water Tower, Pinfold Road, Ormskirk, Lancashire, L39 2AZ

The owner has managed to retain a great amount of the space inside the tower by adding an external staircase and passenger lift. A style that is understated but definitely is now within the DNA of this once empty tired redundant tower.
