Because of the unique nature of the site, and the owners instructions to secure the property in its original state without making any modifications to or causing any damage to the fabric of the property we offered the solution to secure the property through multiple live-in guardians via VPS Guardians.
The guardians are accommodated in the main house and in some of its many turrets. One key advantage of protection by occupation is that there is 24-hour physical security presence on site, the residents will maintain the building whilst they are residing there and can ensure it doesn’t decay or suffer damage caused by things like water leaks or rodent infestations. In addition this solution helps combat the housing shortage in the area.
Both the surrounding community and the colourful family of peacocks who live in the garden of the castle are all very pleased with this temporary solution and the new residents of this historic moated gem!
Besides the live-in guardians we have been using the large room on the first floor as a meeting room. With regard to the type of property and to protect it, we are very critical with regard to the selection of parties and availability.
