Stately homes, castles and country estates provide the most spacious of homes, the ultimate party pads and wonderful spaces to live, work, run, play, sleep and dream.
But few are modernised to 21st century standards with high speed internet, large bright ground floor kitchens and en-suite bathrooms. We know the ones which are and how to get what you want at a sensible price.
Castles can be dark, houses can be drafty and some changes are not possible. When they are so far apart, it is often difficult to view more than a few properties in a day. To make the very most of your time available Manse & Garret will view all properties in advance to ensure they meet all your criteria and can organise helicopter transport if required.
Having grown up on a small country estate and in a Grade I listed house, Karelia can guide you through the myriad of regulations affecting works to historic homes in England and Scotland and provide maintenance and staffing budgets and running cost estimates.
Through our contacts, we can help you find perfect household and grounds staff, source appropriate furniture, furnishings and art works and suitable transportation options.
