We’re pleased to announce that we have a total of 136 lots available, with something for everyone, so you’re bound to find a lot that tickles your fancy.

So keep your eyes peeled as we take a look at some of the lots that are up for grabs at our May auction.

Period Terrace Cottage Potentially Dating Back to the 17th Century

With a guide price of £225,000 – £230,000 (plus fees), this period terrace cottage located in Great Baddow, Essex, is thought to date back to the mid 17th century. Arranged over three floors with a rear extension, the cottage would benefit from modernisation but also offers well-preserved character features, alongside a sprightly rear garden.

The property is situated close to local amenities and shops, and for the more enthusiastic shopper, additional High Street shopping is a short distance away in Chelmsford where the mainline railway station that connects to London (Liverpool Street) is also available.

This charming two bedroom period cottage could be the perfect place to settle down, or could alternatively be rented out to tenants.

Freehold Site with Planning Permission for Stables, Hay Barn and a Sand School

Nestled in the charming rural Hampshire village of Headley, you’re not likely to run out of space with this freehold site as it measures up at a whopping 7.21 acres! It also has vehicular access as well as direct access to a bridleway.

And if you’ve ever planned on living your dreams of owning your own stable, this lot has planning permission for the construction of a private stable block and hay barn along with associated sand school – so there’s plenty of potential up for grabs from this particular lot.

Its guide price is £160,000 – £180,000 (+plus fees), so there’s all to play for!

Detached Period Property With Conversion and Development Potential

Built as a family home in 1864, this extensive extended property covers three floors and stands on a large walled plot.  

With the potential for conversion, this property holds great promise as a family home for the buyer or use as a House in Multiple Occupation to be rented out to the right tenants (subject to all necessary consents being obtainable).

At a guide price of £800,000 – £810,000 (+ fees), this property is located in Rochester, where Charles Dickens based many of his novels, and conveniently situated a short distance from the town’s historic high street which is home to Rochester castle and cathedral.

Rare opportunity to secure two individually detached dwellings in a single lot

It’s a rare occasion that two individually detached dwellings are offered as a single lot, but this just might be your lucky day!

These two detached houses – Rosebay and Meadow View, while held under separate titles, come together to complete an impressive 1.3 acre plot and are available to be purchased as a single lot.

Rosebay is the larger, and likely the older, of the two properties and as such requires some TLC when it comes to upgrading and refurbishing. The latter, Meadow View, has separate access from Gardeners Lane and is not in need of as much immediate attention. 

Both houses are located a short driving distance from the historic market town of Romsey, on the outskirts of the village of Wellow. There’s plenty of choice in regards to this lot as the buyer can opt to renovate the existing properties, seek out the opportunity to redevelop one or both of the plots or even expand on further development – the choices really are endless.

Excellent chance for investment with this mixed block seafront property

Our final highlighted lot offers a great chance for investment as this seafront corner property, located close to Hastings pier, is comprised of a ground floor café premises with four flats above.

It’s worth noting that three of the four flats are included within the sale as one flat has been sold on a long lease. Two of the available three flats are already occupied by tenants, Flat 1 is let at £5,148 per annum while Flat 2 is currently let at £4,861.92 per annum, and the remaining flat is currently vacant of possession. Flat 1 and 2 are likely to offer a potential rental increase at the end of the current tenancy terms, once again presenting ample investing opportunities.

The location of this property offers unspoilt sea views from the front of the building and is a short walking distance to the local shops and amenities as well as Hastings town centre and its mainline Railway station for easy travel along to London and across the coast.

With a guide price of £380,000, this lot is certainly not to be missed!
