December Auction Highlights

It’s hard to believe that we’ve arrived at the final auction of 2020, and what a year it’s been! While 2020 may be coming to an end, despite it being far from the year any of us planned for, the potential that 2021 brings is nothing short of exciting. But before you wrap up the year (and the rest of your Christmas shopping!), our upcoming December Auction is full of exciting opportunities with 132 lots to choose from.

Let’s take a look at some of the ones to watch once the bidding begins on the 14th of December.

A Former Chapel with plenty of character and potential

Full of character and historic charm, this pair of detached former ecclesiastical buildings are located near St Austell’s town centre and were once home to the Tregarne Chapel as well as the next door Sunday School building.

Due to how long the buildings have been left unmaintained both properties are in need of repair, but it’s clear just how much promise they offer once restored to their former beauty, with ample space and unique interior features.

The chapel building also has planning approval to turn the existing space into four one-bedroom flats, four maisonettes, a penthouse apartment and a two-bedroom cottage, totalling 10 spacious residential units. 

With plenty of paths to go down, this lot is available with a guide price of £135,000 Plus. For more information, please visit the dedicated property listing, or contact us on 0345 8500333.

A charming period cottage in a popular village

Our next property on the list is this quaint semi-detached period era cottage which is situated in the picturesque village of Boughton under Blean, near the market town of Faversham. The village of Boughton offers a range of local facilities, with the nearby town of Faversham close by for all other needs.

With several rustic period features and radiators powered by a gas heating system, the cottage is perfect for owner occupation, or alternatively, as an investment. 

The property is deceptively spacious with an entrance hall, dining room, living room, kitchen and bathroom with W.C. on the ground floor; as well as a landing and three bedrooms on the first floor. The cottage also has a rear garden.

This property is currently available with a guide price of £190,000 Plus. For more information, please visit the dedicated property listing, or contact us on 0345 8500333..

A five storey former flour mill with the opportunity for re-development

This next one is a little more out there, but we’re excited to offer this 19th Century former flour mill which spans across five different floors, providing the room for extremely spacious accommodation. While the mill does require renovation throughout, it could be suitable for a multitude of applications, with plenty of space to play around with.

Each of the five floors feature an open plan design and wooden support beams that provide the popular rustic aesthetic that many modern interior designers are asked to emulate.

The grounds of the property, which would benefit from some definition and neatening up, are predominantly situated to the front and side of the building with access from all directions. 

This property is available at a guide price of £100,000-£125,000. For more information, please visit the dedicated property listing, or contact us on 01622 608400.

Valuable residential site with planning for seventeen dwellings

.Situated at the southern end of Bartletts Close in the large village of Minster-on-Sea, our next lot is this freehold residential site. 

Rectangular in shape and reaching to a size of 0.55 hectares (1.37 acres), this site holds endless possibilities as an initial outline planning permission has been granted based on an appeal for development of the site. (This is subject to a Section 106 Agreement, with further information and a copy of the planning consent available on our legal documentation page.)

The outline planning permission for the site, granted on appeal by Swale Borough Council in October 2020, is for the development of 17 dwellings. This makes the lot best suited for those interested in investing in future dwelling developments, with the desire and vision to build and establish the site for residential use, subject to all the necessary consents being obtainable.

This property is available at a guide price of £900,000-£950,000. For more information, please visit the dedicated property listing, or contact us on 0345 85000333.

A five-bedroom mid-terrace bay fronted house

Our final property on the list is a mid-terrace bay fronted house, located on Sturry Road, which could be yours this month as it enters the residential property market.

Situated in the thriving but historic city of Canterbury with comprehensive shopping facilities, tourist attractions, mainline railway station and many other facilities, this five-bedroom property is currently arranged as five letting rooms with communal facilities – making it perfect for student letting.

At the moment, each of the rooms are let under the terms of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy Agreement at £400 per calendar month. However, it could easily be transformed into a spacious single dwelling for yourself or for future tenants or retain its student accommodation status as a residential investment.

With a gas heating system via radiators and double glazed windows, the property includes an entrance hall, living room, kitchen and shower room with W.C. and two bedrooms on the ground floor. The first floor includes a landing, bathroom with W.C. and three bedrooms, with an outside front garden and rear garden to top it all off.

This property is available at a guide price of £225,000 plus. For more information, please visit the dedicated property listing, or contact us on 0345 8500333.
