For sale a very nice 9ft Burroughs and watts 6 legged table circa 1900 / 1910 .
if any Scottish based buyer wishes to buy the table I can recommend a more local fitter to dismantle and transport the table for you .
my clients have added a period table light to this table’s photo’s to follow and add to advert.
there is also a small round cue rack and various cues and rests and a Vintage scoreboard all for a complete price of £995 now that’s really good value for this type of table
I have copied and pasted this previous report to show that the table was only installed at Taymouth house in December 2013 , our clients wish to use the room for other purpose’s
so the table sadly has to be sold rather than waste away in dismantled form stored somewhere on the Estate .
the table cost my clients a pretty sum to buy it then have it transported all the way up from Derbyshire and then set up , as you can see it was a two day job .
I am informed that the table did not get the use that my clients where expecting hence why the change of mind over the room use .
the table has not had much use since the install so is in good condition , but by all means if local By PRIOR ARRANGEMENT with the owners go over and inspect the table .
please no casual callers , all inquiries to GCL billiards at firstname.lastname@example.org
Again any inquiries to GCL Billiards who will pass any details onto the seller to Arrange viewing appointments or sale . email@example.com
you have a choice of fitters in Scotland and over the border in England to relocate this table , the cost would have to be calculated and post codes and if upstairs or basement location is required .
here is the previous story put on our blog of the table being installed at Taymount Estate in December 2013 .
The last couple of days we have traveled up-to Scotland having dismantled a 9ft snooker table for our Scottish buying client’s John & Amelia from one of our selling clients , Carol in Ashbourne Derbyshire loading the 9ft table the previous day.
We set off at 6am arriving at 12.15 in Stanley near Perth , the house is located down a 1 mile Forest road , where the Holiday let properties are located at the end of the drive with stunning views of the river Tay and it’s salmon jumping falls .
Taymouth house is the largest of the properties and this was the location for the snooker table to be fitted , a large building that has stood on this site since the 1700’s
please click on the details here for further information about this holiday let http://www.taymountestate.com/index.php/about-us
There are three properties the main house , West house which we where allowed to stay overnight in , and the Gardeners cottage.
The West house which is to the left of the main house is where we stayed for a night , and very comfortable it is too ,
the best bed I have slept in for a long while and that includes my own .
With views like this in December , it must be stunning in summer months . and when the snow is on the ground ,
we where around 6 weeks too late for all the colour of autumn leaves on the trees.
once the table was set up level with the slate on the filler was put in the slate joints , while this was drying , it gave us 30 mins to explore the outside views of the river
this part of the falls was where we saw at least 3 salmon jump the fall on the far right of this photo.
Oops what is wrong with the table ? green and yellow balls on wrong spots , just shows I don’t play the game !
This is the very nice condition Burroughs and Watts billiard table that our Scottish clients bought from one of our selling advertisers ,
who used the Free to advertise feature on our web site , we assisted both the buyer and the seller reach a price that was acceptable taking into account that the table had to be transported up-to Stanley near Perth in Scotland some near 700 mile round trip and taking two days to complete and get back , plus the half a day for loading in Ashbourne.
I think the seller got a good price as it had been up for sale for over a year , and the buyer got a period table for his period holiday let , also at a good price as a buyer as he was buying direct from the seller .
The client is fitting some period looking lighting within the next day or so , ready for their new year booking of the house . the main house has just gone through a complete renovation ready for the 2014 season , so book early to avoid the rush , when word gets around about these holiday let’s, I am sure the Fully booked signs will be up for most of the season , they offer extremely good value and as a billiard fitter I have worked in a large holiday let house similar in Lincolnshire , but it has not got the Location and stunning views of this House , and I will let you into a secret , the Lincolnshire one is more expensive .
this Holiday let is very good in that if enough people fill the house then it is extremely better value than any Bed and Breakfast .
You have a choice of different activities in the area , Walking with stunning views , Golf , Shooting , Fishing , Skiing , Glasgow and Edinburgh are around 1 hour away , there are many historical points of interest within the area , Castles and distillery’s to mention just two , plus famous battle grounds like the William Wallace memorial at Stirling just 30 minutes away.
then relax back at Taymouth house with a beer or whisky or wine and play snooker or pool on the period circa 1900 Billiard table . or just 1 minute down the slope in front of the house and you are standing on the bank watching salmon jump the falls .
