OUR STORY

LTR was founded in April 1999 by Jonathan Townsend-Rose and Andrew Loyd.  The brainchild of Jonathan for whom the concept of making better commercial use of some of the larger houses & castles in Scotland, in his role as adviser to the owners, was becoming a priority.

Andrew had just returned to Scotland from the US where he had managed the estates of various prominent US families and it was immediately clear that there was not only a shared passion for these beautiful properties but also a very complementary mix of skill sets. LTR’s portfolio has evolved over the last 17 years from a handful of mainly ancestral homes in Scotland to a wide mix of properties throughout the UK, Ireland and Europe, embracing many different architectural styles, with the one shared feature that they all now enjoy a high level of comfort.

Whether a 6 bedroom Scottish keep or a 15 bedroom English ancestral pile, LTR only works with the best homes available and our clients all get the full ‘concierge service’ that we have provided since day one.  We work with historical houses that have been refurbished to an extremely high standard in a very traditional manner as well as classical houses that have been renovated with a contemporary finish but completed to an equally high standard with all the comforts of the modern day.

In the summer of 2016, Jonathan and Andrew founded LTR Property Consultancy Services.  This is a separate company dedicated to providing specialist advice to owners of large stately homes and castles on how best to prepare them for LTR clients to be able to enjoy the private house experience.
