FOR SALE: Bramwell Booth Home at Temuka is on the market.

Potential buyers of Temuka's Bramwell Booth property are still waiting on an engineer's report before the property will be sold.

No offers were received for the deadline sale which closed in May, but the real estate agency representing the vendor was still positive.

Bayleys Real Estate Timaru representative Sue Morton said several parties were showing interest.

However, before they could progress any further a comprehensive engineer's report, known as a DEE report, would be carried out, which would allow buyers to make a well-informed decision, Morton said.

The report is at least four weeks away.

The 5.019-hectare property on Milford Clandeboye Rd owned by the Salvation Army was used as accommodation for the intellectually disabled.

It was shut last November after it was considered no longer financially viable.

The Historic Places Trust has a category two classification on the homestead, meaning it cannot be demolished or changed markedly.
