3 Gems From Our April and May Auctions

We cannot wait until 29 April! That is when the first of our five April and May auctions takes place and we have got some amazing properties going under the hammer. From a residential development site in Cornwall to three farm buildings in Surrey, there is truly something for everyone. The fantastic buys on offer are just too many to mention, so it’s been a tough task narrowing it down to just three, but here are a few of our highlights to keep an eye out for…   

B&B by the Sea

Have you ever thought about running your own B&B by the sea? If so, then we’ve got the ideal property for you!

This four-storey guest house in the seaside town of Dover is going under the hammer at our Kent and South East London auction on 30 April. The property has eight ensuite bedrooms and is all set up to continue to be run as a guest house. The owners have built up a successful business that achieved a revenue of £67,402 for the tax year 2017-2018.

Within a 5-minute walk to the town centre and across the road from Dover Priory mainline railway station, St. Albans Guest House is popular with those visiting the town’s historic sites, those making their first stop in England after arriving by ferry and those travelling the other way on to continental Europe.  

However, if running a B&B is not for you, then there may be the potential for converting the premises into self-contained units or a house in multiple occupation (HMO), subject to necessary consents. The guide price for this well-maintained property is £380,000-£400,000 (plus fees).

Period Cottage In The Country

A lovely two-bedroom period cottage in the Sussex countryside is up for auction at our Sussex and Surrey event on 1 May. The cottage’s location is the best of both worlds; rural and adjoining the 1066 country walk but only 2.5 kilometres away from Bexhill town centre and its pretty seafront.   

The two-floor property has remained in the same ownership for many years. On the first floor you will find an entrance hall, a living room with a beautiful inglenook fireplace, a kitchen, bathroom with WC and second reception room.

The two bedrooms are located on the first floor, and outside there is a paved patio with lawn area to the rear and side garden, and a driveway with space for up to five cars.

Ideal for a couple, as a small family dwelling or residential investment, the cottage goes to auction with a guide price of £240,000-£250,000 at the Hilton Metropole hotel in Brighton on 1 May.

Everyday’s a Holiday at West Bay!

Ever fancied owning a holiday home? If the answer is yes, then you are in luck because on Day 5 of our auctions, a holiday apartment on the Isle of Wight is going under the hammer.

This one-bedroom abode with living area, kitchen and bathroom, is located in the exclusive West Bay Country Club & Spa. The home is ideal for use by the owner/s or as a holiday let. The guide price is £35,000-£45,000 and gives you the remainder of a 125 year lease from 25 March 2006.

Another Isle of Wight gem going up for auction is the grand, historic Prince Consort building with a guide price of £450,000-£500,000.
