Looking for a wreck of your own? Or got one to sell?
Lots of you write asking if I can help you find or sell a property. Sorry, but
I can't. Wreck is my hobby not my job, and I can't help with individual
What I can offer instead is this page. If you'd like to reachproperty owners and estate agents that visit Wreck, add your ad to this page.
It'll cost you £4 for six months via Paypal (pay to firstname.lastname@example.org) and you
can write it yourself or I'll write it from the email you send me.
you've got a property to sell that one of these nice folk might be interested
in, they'd love to hear from you.
We're desperately seeking...
New Forest. Budget negotiable. Family of five from the Isle of Wight have just sold and are now seeking a new home. We are looking for a loveable wreck in the New Forest area, preferably within a few miles of Fordingbridge. All options considered! Email Rob at email@example.com
Kent and surrounding areas. Budget up to £200k. We are looking for a
property in any state of disrepair somewhere in Kent or nearby counties, town
or country, preferably near Maidstone. A property which includes land (anything
up to an acre), and a bonus would be outbuildings on the property. Could be an
old church, schoolhouse, or farm buildings. Cash buyers, no chain. We are
retired, looking for a project and would consider anything. Please email Roger
and Alison at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hinckley, Leicestershire and surrounding areas. Budget
up to £100k. I'm looking for a suitable commercial/factory/barn property to
convert into a residential dwelling in Hinckley, Leicestershire or possibly any
surrounding towns/areas. I have a budget of £70,000-£100,000 and am looking for
around 1000sq/ft of ideally an open space. Please email Alex at
Scottish Highlands. Budget up to £160k. We would love
to be situated anywhere between Fort William, Fort Augustus, and Inverness. We
are looking for a detached, croft property, and anything that has over an acre
as we would like to convert it into a fully self-sufficient eco house with an
eco campsite. We would accept a regular house if it has the land. The property
must be able to secure a mortgage against. We are happy with minor renovation
work (as long as its nothing structural or expensive). Being an arborist, I
would like some mature trees and shrubs (overgrown is fine, but definitely no
barren heathland). Please email Ben at email@example.com
South West-ish. Budget up to £250k. We are searching
for a small (2 bedroom) quirky stone property tucked away near the sound of
water in peaceful rural setting - a quirky something that can be called a
retreat. Location ....ideally situated in Exmoor, Quantock Hills or Dorset or
may consider elsewhere in South West as long as it is away from traffic and new
ugly development but walkable to a nearby village. Love stone shippons (cow
sheds), Victorian gothic or even early 1900s wooden pavilions and rolling countryside.
Please email Flick at firstname.lastname@example.org
Midlands. Budget up to £300K. Looking for something
rural — no main or busy roads, preferably an unadopted road or very long
private driveway. Near a village. Walking distance to pub would be lovely, but
will consider almost anything. Wanting at least an acre, with outbuildings or
room to build outbuildings. After
something quirky, unusual, or old. Detached. Hills, water, woodland all welcome.
South West. Budget negotiable. Interested in disused
and derelict buildings in the south west of England. Anything considered.

Oxfordshire. Budget up to £360k. We are desperately
seeking a development opportunity in Oxfordshire. Small farm, rural cottage,
water pumping station, church and any quirky traditional buildings in between
will fit the bill. Our budget is up to £360k and we are ready to jump on any
opportunity that interests us. Please email Martin and Samantha via firstname.lastname@example.org
South Herts / Inner Chilterns areas. Budget £200-£250k
(cash). We'd love to find a lovely old building in need of some serious TLC
which we could turn into our first home. Very flexible as to what - but ideally
it would be an older building with at least a bit of a garden. Any condition
considered but it's got to be lovely...! We're teachers so could spend a long
summer working on it - but obviously would get the builders in for the serious
stuff. Needs to be within reach of Edgware, so probably looking at
Hertfordshire/Buckinghamshire - currently in St. Albans but would look further
out. Please email Andrew and Dora at email@example.com
Coastal areas. UK,
Wales, Ireland. Budget up to £100k. I'm looking for any type of place as long
as it has a garden and is not a flat, with at least two bedrooms. It needs to
be livable from the start, even if it needs work. I'm a freelance graphic
designer so the property must have mains electric and be able to get a
phoneline for broadband. Most of all it has to be close to the sea with a view.
If you can help, email me. John via firstname.lastname@example.org
