Where has the year gone?! – we are thinking to ourselves as we get ready for our mid-year auction with much excitement because of the amazing properties ready to go under the hammer! Here are just three to look out for…
A wonderful apartment in a much sought after area of Eastbourne goes under the hammer at our Sussex and Surrey auction on 11 June. The three-bedroom property sits by the coast and boasts sea views to the front and views towards the South Downs at the rear.
Located to the west of the town centre in the Meads area of Eastbourne, the third-floor property is close to shops, amenities and schools, including the prep schools St. Andrews and Mede’s, and the Eastbourne Campus of the University of Brighton.
The Dolphin Court building, where the apartment is found, has a communal entrance with lift and stairs and offers a caretaker service. The apartment has a balcony, fitted kitchen, three separate bedrooms, and a bathroom and separate W.C. The property also includes a storage room and garage.
With a guide price of £170,000 – £180,000, this apartment is ideal for owner occupation and would also make a great investment as a rental property.
At our Kent and South East London auction on 12 June, there is a pair of period properties in the cathedral town of Rochester that offer fantastic rental opportunities. The attractive building is split into two properties each offering four apartments.
The building is located on a quiet residential street but only a 10-minute walk to the historic town centre and mainline railway station with commuter trains to London, which is just 40 minutes away.
The guide price for the building is £700,000-£710,000 and could offer great opportunities to improve the existing rents being received.
“This is very possibly the best auction property I’ve ever seen” were the words of our auctioneer, Graham Barton, after visiting Waterloo Cottage in Devon, and we very much agree with Graham!
The stunning detached cottage is nestled in the woodlands of the Blackdown Hills, just outside the pretty market town of Axminster. The 1.26-acre site where the three-bedroom cottage sits even has a stream running through it!
On the ground floor is a kitchen/living room, sitting room/third bedroom and a bathroom. Moving up to the first floor you will find bedroom one providing access to bedroom two.
The gardens are predominantly in the form of gently managed woodland with a number of paths wending their way through leading to more open areas and the stream.
The property is perfect for those wishing to get away from the hustle and bustle of urban life. So much so, that it currently does not have mains electricity but rather power generators and the only access is by foot through an adjoining field. The quaint cottage will be up for auction with a guide price of £190,000-£240,000.
