Offices Available To Rent

This newly renovated business centre belongs to the Unique Property Bulletin shareholders. Over half of the offices are available for rental (this helps pay to keep the website publication online and free for readers).

^^ Abbey Studios Before Renovation ^^

The spare offices are available to rent. Including all of the ground floor. Ideal for estate agency, solicitors, accountants, mortgage brokers, insurance brokerage, printing business, chiropractor, etc. Affordable rentals from £29pw – £49pw. The first floor has a couple of spare offices available to rent. The second floor has the permanent offices for Unique Property Bulletin…

^^ Abbey Studios After Renovation ^^

This building was bought on 28th February 2020. The renovation work began within three days of getting the keys. The broken window was unsafe, so that was boarded up (and subsequently repaired). This heralded a significant overhaul of the whole building. Especially the leaky roof which is now fully repaired/renovated…

^^ The Roof Leaked Badly ^^

^^ Hence The Scaffolding Repairs Within Days ^^

The whole roof is now completely overhauled

and clear of all leaks.

^^ Though Your Editor Discovered ^^

^^ He Suffers From Vertigo! ^^

So the view from atop that scaffold to inspect the

roof condition was uncomfortable.

A Long Way Down At Our New Arbroath Premises

The roof is now fully renewed/renovated.

Plus the whole building has been fully rewired + replumbed and has had a thorough high-specification wrap of Ecotherm and RWA45 insulation. One of our directors bet the other he couldn’t get the architect specified RWA45 down from £26 a pack to under £20 a pack. A wonderful mistake. David then ordered two articulated trailers of this…

^^ This Is A £20 Bet! The Result? ^^

^^ 2 Lorry Loads of High Specification Insulation ^^

Enough insulation material to…

=> Complete the Abbey Studios Business Centre plus the last Lighthouse building at Noss Head and get half way through the Sannox Hotel project on the Island of Arran!

=> Saved a small fortune. Twice.

This was bought and paid for long before the massive hike in electricity prices. The professional insulation of the Abbey Studios building has proven a great attribute as it is keeping the heating bills low. That, in turn, helps the newstart businesses on the ground floor more viable as their overheads remain low…

The ground floor has just one office left for rent…

Exterior Now Renovated

The interior is completely renovated too. The offices have been overhauled and a new fire-safety system installed….

Affordable Rentals At £29pw to £49pw

We can also help you secure your own

exclusive shop premises on the High Street.

We do get new office and shop spaces come up for rent when businesses grow to a size and need their own bespoke shop premises. This is one of the main reasons we are aiming to establish these specialised business centres in many owns. It helps grow newstart companies to the point where they are confident to take on their own (renovated) shop premises in the High Street. A virtuous circle.

^^ Arbroath Abbey ^^

Just across the road from Abbey Studios.

A very nice place to go for a lunchtime walk.

When you have such magnificent surroundings such as the iconic Arbroath Abbey across the road, then it makes a lot of sense to bring empty shops back to life. his is an exceptionally nice part of Arbroath. In fact most town centres have this sort of thing happen. A decline in small shops (usually due to rents being too high). Closed shops lower the footfall and cause more shops to close.

=> We simply reverse that spiral. New shops do, in fact bring more new shops as footfall increase.

It is a sobering thought to remember that approximately 50 shops have been renovated and 151 new jobs created, all from this obscure Old Coastguard Lookout o Davaar Island 35 years ago during 1985…

Just £4 Per Annum Rent!

Yes you read that correctly: four pounds a year (from 1985 to 1994). The deal was we had to renovate the building! That was a lot of fun. Even though we surrendered the lease in 1994, you can still go and visit Davaar Island for holiday…

So if a bit of delay happens at the new Abbey Studios Business Centre during the wretched pandemic, please rest assured, we are in this for the long term and intend to relaunch the Unique Property Bulletin publication as soon as current Covid force majeure circumstances allow.

Most folk will agree the Coronavirus years have been horrendous. If anything good can be distilled it is to appreciate each and every day we are given on this Earth.

Although some days are very difficult. For example, seeing the NHS nurses, doctors and clinicians keep the iconic medical institution still standing after being hit with terrible jobs is humbling. Watching news segments where a nurse holds an Ipad video call device in front of a patient dying of Covid, whilst that patient says goodbye to their family is heartbreaking in the extreme.

It is likely that some form of charitable organisation will require to be established to help with avalanche of PTSD from doctors and nurses once the pandemic is over. These words are written by a member of the emergency services with family and friends still on the front line. Normal tragedies are hard enough to deal with. But the sheer volume and way cruel way in which Covid is ending lives will surely have an effect on the NHS personnel. We will return to this matter.

It isn’t just medical professionals that have suffered collateral damage. One of the saddest things we saw during Covid was this photograph of school children kept apart from each other in chalk boxes on the playground. This was shown to us by a friend to whom we owe a debt of gratitude…

A Very Sad Sight.

School Children Kept Apart During Covid.

Heaven knows what the current generation

of children will make of these lost Covid years.

These are all matters that will require work to heal.

=> For now, our job is to create jobs and bring High Streets back to life. Hopefully to help restore some normality.

It is one of the happier things that we can actually do for this obscure, eccentric publication called Unique Property Bulletin. For it was that website which helped subscribers and readers find the unusual homes that they have been looking for. As a side-effect, the spare funds from our directors, shareholders  and subscribers have helped bring about the restoration of High Streets. This is in addition to our core purpose of bringing dilapidated coastguard stations + water towers + lighthouse stations etc., back to life.

Once the new Unique Property Bulletin HQ is completed, the aim is for a trust fund to own several buildings and the rental income from those used to help pay for PAYE employed staff and on occasion some freelance journalists.

This should reduce the stress on the current volunteers when some of our website listing go viral with 186,399 folk reading about them…

We aim to bring back the full, online magazine format of

Unique Property Bulletin during 2024.

In the meantime, we shall continue to keep things ticking over by uploading random unique property every few days.

Earlier Page Archived…

Original Page Narrative: May 2017

Please note, from May 2017 we will be going to a temporary change of publication format.

Our front page will be the actual Bulletin – with a fresh unique property appearing every few days.

This is because our 3 main volunteers are working hard to secure our new premises and arrange a modest investment portfolio to pay towards employing a couple of staff members.

This is all your fault dear reader – in the best of ways!

You have made this website an…

Accidental Success

By your gift of clicking onto these pages in huge numbers – often breaking the 70,000 mark.

As a consequence, we have an ever growing mail bag.

We now need some fully employed staff support to help our readers find the home of their dreams.

So whilst we beaver away to sort out an office plus premises to rent out and pay new staff members (with the rental income), our ability to put the FULL format Unique Property Bulletins online each fortnight are a stretch too far.

Hence the temporary but still live posts of fresh unique property for your edification.
