The historic ruin of Dunstanburgh Castle dominates the horizon to the right and the rugged Emblestones, accessible only at low tide, are directly in front, with steps down to the beach. Originally built as a retreat for members at Dunstanburgh Golf Club which still shares the dunes, it has been owned for the past 50 years by a family of five children and is in need of some internal refurbishment.Jamie Cooke, Managing Director of IAM Sold, says, “It’s not surprising that this property sold above reserve price – it’s an ideal family holiday home situated amongst stunning unspoilt coast. The family were reluctant to sell but needed to for practical reasons. It’s rare for properties like this to come up so it attracted a lot of attention and shows that auction can really find the true value of a property when it is as unique as this. It is highly unlikely that it would have reached this price if it was offered for sale by private treaty. Ultimately, a number of people really wanted the property and were willing to compete for it.”Northumberland bungalow with view auction property with view views August 21, 2017The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

first_img VCNO Pays Visit to Naval Air Facility Atsugi, Japan View post tag: Japan The Vice Chief of Naval Operations (VCNO) paid a visit to Naval Air Facility Atsugi, Japan, Aug. 27 as part of a tour of several Commander, Naval Region Japan (CNRJ) installations.During his visit, Adm. Mark Ferguson held an all hands call at the base’s Cinema 77 to discuss the importance of the Forward Deployed Naval Forces and the challenges faced by Sailors in Japan, budget concerns and sequestration.He emphasized the U.S. Navy’s commitment to provide the latest technology and support to its forces in the Pacific region. After the VCNO’s address, Sailors were afforded the opportunity to ask a few questions.“This is my first visit to Japan as vice chief of naval operations,” said Ferguson. “As the VCNO it’s important for me to visit our forward operating locations and bases around the world in order to see how our sailors are performing, our relationships with our allies and to listen to the concerns of the commanders and understand the issues that we can take back to Washington [D.C.] to help them.”During the all hands call, Ferguson also discussed the importance of NAF Atsugi regarding the upcoming partial move of Carrier Air Wing Five to Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni, Japan, stating that the installation will still remain an integral part of the forward deployed naval force.“It’s important that naval forces are where it matters, when it matters, so [NAF Atsugi] being forward not only provides a stabilizing presence, but a ready response force,” he said. “It may have a different mix of aircraft and have a slightly smaller presence, but [NAF Atsugi] will still be important to us in the future.”During his visit, Ferguson also took a tour of the base and also viewed Unaccompanied Housing to view facilities available to Sailors assigned to the installation.From NAF Atsugi, Ferguson is scheduled to visit with Sailors at Commander, Fleet Activities Yokosuka aboard the forward-deployed aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) and Fleet Activities Sasebo before returning to Washington D.C.[mappress]Press Release, August 28, 2013; Image: US Navy August 28, 2013 View post tag: air View post tag: Visit View post tag: Atsugi View post tag: Defence View post tag: facility View post tag: to View post tag: Naval View post tag: News by topic Back to overview,Home naval-today VCNO Pays Visit to Naval Air Facility Atsugi, Japan View post tag: Navy View post tag: Pays Training & Education View post tag: Defense View post tag: VCNO Share this articlelast_img read more

Gunners fire as City are stunned

first_img Press Association Arsenal’s victory put aside their well-documented recent struggles against top-four opponents and considerably enhanced their prospects of finishing in the Champions League positions this term. The Gunners were thrashed 6-3 in the corresponding fixture last season and the odds again seemed against them as Aguero and Vincent Kompany returned to the City starting line-up. But Aguero, who played up front alone in the first half, had a quiet game and City struggled to get anything going even though they dominated possession. Arsenal looked the more incisive at times and fit-again captain Kompany was made to look rusty. Kompany’s defensive partner Martin Demichelis also had some moments of uncertainty and Arsenal went close to taking the lead from one of them. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seized on a weak Demichelis header and burst down the right before whipping in an inviting cross for Giroud but the Frenchman glanced his header wide. The Gunners broke through five minutes later as Nacho Monreal attempted to play a one-two with Giroud and was impeded by Kompany as he continued his run into the box. The Spaniard may have gone to ground easily but referee Mike Dean was in no doubt about the contact and Cazorla took full advantage from the spot. Cazorla converted a 24th-minute penalty and Giroud headed home from a set-piece with 67 minutes gone to put a dent in City’s Barclays Premier League title defence. City, despite the return of Sergio Aguero, created little in what was a generally dull game and the result left them five points behind leaders Chelsea with a trip to Stamford Bridge to come in a fortnight. City were unable to muster a dangerous response despite controlling plenty of the ball. One good Pablo Zabaleta break yielded nothing and Aguero was off-target with a header from a James Milner cross. Kompany’s frustrating afternoon continued as he was booked for a heavy challenge on Giroud. City boss Manuel Pellegrini reverted to his default 4-4-2 set-up after the break as Stevan Jovetic replaced Milner and moved alongside Aguero. The change of approach initially appeared to work and Aguero had their first serious shot with an effort that deflected wide. Jesus Navas was the first to test David Ospina, the deputy keeper again preferred to Wojciech Szczesny, with a powerful effort that was parried away. But the game also opened up and Sanchez curled an effort across goal after turning Zabaleta out wide. Dean then overlooked two possible fouls on the edge of the City area as a chance opened up for Aaron Ramsey on his return to the side but the Welshman shot over. City produced another good move but Laurent Koscielny made a vital interception as Navas fired a cross in Aguero’s direction. Arsenal applied the killer touch after 67 minutes after Sanchez was fouled by Jovetic. Cazorla clipped a free-kick into the area and Giroud reacted quickest, losing his marker Fernando to head home in simple fashion. It was not dissimilar to an Everton equaliser which also cost City points last week and the defending of set-pieces could be a concern. Sanchez threatened another with a powerful strike from the edge of the area but Joe Hart saved well. City tried to hit back and Monreal cleared unconvincingly over his own bar but the hosts did not consistently trouble their visitors. Arsenal efficiently and professionally played out the remainder of the game as City, despite the introduction of Frank Lampard, lacked inspiration. As in previous years, it appeared the absence of Yaya Toure due to the African Nations Cup had proved costly and City will be anxious to raise their levels when they face Chelsea. Santi Cazorla and Olivier Giroud struck in each half as Arsenal stunned lacklustre champions Manchester City 2-0 at the Etihad Stadium.last_img read more
