Nine Former Manses For Sale In Heavenly Rural Locations

Buyers looking to purchase a heavenly property now have the option of a range of former manses that are for sale via CKD Galbraith.

For the second time in as many years, the firm has received multiple instructions on former manse properties and now have nine for sale with another two recently sold or placed under offer.

The properties are being marketed across Scotland and the range on offer ensures there is a former manse to suit most budgets, with prices ranging from 265,000 to 685,000.

Being the traditional home for Ministers throughout Scotland, the manses on offer are constructed to a high standard and retain a wealth of charm and original features.

In recent years, manse properties sold by CKD Galbraith have attracted significant interest and this is a trend that John Bound, partner in charge of the firm's Inverness office, expects to continue.

John said: "Manse properties are always highly desirable for buyers looking for a divine purchase but it is unusual to have so many being marketed by the firm concurrently.

"The use of these properties as manses provides a common link between the houses but more importantly, the quality and charm of each home gives an even greater bond between them.

"Most of the properties have been well cared for and would largely be suitable as exquisite family homes or in some cases, could be used by buyers wishing to establish a holiday business such as a high-quality bed and breakfast.

"Every one of the houses has its own unique history and they represent extremely good value for money. We expect plenty of praise for the properties as viewers visit the former manses in the weeks and months ahead."
