February Auction Roundup

Despite the flurry of snow across most of the UK, the February auction was still quite the event as prospective bidders made the most of the online auction, bidding from the comfort of their homes. Significantly warmer than having to travel to a physical auction we’re sure!

In February we saw 104 lots catalogued with a sales rate of almost 80%, raising over £16 million for our clients, marking an excellent start from our first auction of the year.

Let’s take a look at some of the lots from February that some lucky bidders were able to get a hold of!

Spacious one bedroom flat in Worthing & Littlehampton Areas

Making up part of the ground floor of a detached bay fronted period property, this one-bedroom flat just half a mile away from Worthing’s town centre was certainly quite the charmer in this month’s auction!

Not only did this flat boast a gorgeous interior, but it also came complete with a parking space to the rear – Brighton, Horsham and all surrounding areas are all a short drive away with excellent road links via the nearby A259/A24.

This lovely flat ended up selling for £142,000. Congratulations to the lucky buyer!

Former telephone exchange building in Cambridgeshire Area

Certainly a fairly unique addition to our February lots, this former telephone exchange building, just a short drive from the historic town of Saffron Walden, is based in Great Chesterford, a small village and civil parish in Uttlesford, Essex. 

Sitting at the back of a reasonably sized plot of land with gated front access, this unique open plan property offers its new buyer a whole host of possibilities with excellent potential for any number of uses, subject to consents being obtainable.

Selling for £96,000, we’re interested to see what our lucky buyer has in store for this unique property!

Modern commercial building in Highpoint Business Village

This end-terrace commercial property at the entrance of the Highpoint Business Village, which is situated on the Henwood Industrial Estate in Ashford, certainly offers plenty of space to its new buyer!

Made up of ground-floor and first-floor units, this property includes two office training rooms, staff room, kitchen and toilets on the ground floor as well as the main office, kitchen/staff room, two further office rooms, storeroom and toilets on the first floor. 

This property, ideal for a variety of commercial applications, sold for a total of £200,000. Congratulations to the new buyer on your new investment!

Former Country House turned Research and Development Facility

Going from country house to research and development facility, it seems there’s nothing this property can’t do! 

Originally built in the 1920s as a private dwelling, this substantial detached property has since been extended to over 9,000 sq. ft and offers an extensive array of accommodation which currently includes 36 main rooms which have been turned into offices, laboratories and staff facilities.

Not only is the property itself quite sizeable, but it also has 5 acres of established grounds with a long private driveway. 

With endless space and potential uses such as redevelopment, residential conversion or continued commercial use, it’s no wonder that this immense property went for an impressive £1,020,000! It’s safe to say that we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for this property and its lucky buyer!

Vacant Town Centre supermarket in Shaftesbury

Making for an interesting lot, this vacant supermarket is located in the historic market town of Shaftesbury. In fact, it’s something of a landmark in the town as it is situated close to the High Street and is also adjacent to the main public car parks in the town centre.

Previously used as a supermarket for the Co-operative Group, the majority of the floor area of this property is on the ground floor, set out in a traditional supermarket format with a range of offices, staff facilities and a stock warehouse on the first floor.

Selling for a total of £656,000, we’re keen to see whether its new buyer keeps the building for continued retail use or whether redevelopment is on the cards.
