On a glorious sunny day can there be a better way to spend an afternoon than with Joint Auctioneer Nick Rooke from Finn’s in Canterbury as we strolled, walked and talked to our mutual client about auctioning their truly lovely property?
The sun was out and beating down in what was an almost cloudless day, the birds were tweeting, a crane took off while other water fowl were flying in and out, and as we walked round the lake we watched and heard the frogs plop into the water. The lake even had a little boat tied up and moored on the bank – is this not an idyllic setting? Do I have the best job or do I have the best job?! – I only wish I had bought my binoculars & fishing rods!
So, having hopefully wet (oops sorry ‘Whet’) your appetite, where is the lot, what is it, when is it for sale and how much?
WHERE – The site is located off Grove Road via a three metre wide access track (with and without vehicles at all times and for all purposes in connection with the enjoyment of the land) in a little hamlet called Grove, to the north east of Canterbury. I must have driven along this road many times I never knew the site existed.
WHAT – Lot 14 comprises approx. 12 acres including a fishing lake/duck flight pond, bird watching hide over looking the lake, grassland, site office plus riparian rights to the adjacent River Stour. There may be the opportunity to increase the number of bird watching hides or perhaps create holiday type lodges in the grassland area, subject to all the necessary consents being obtainable.
WHEN – It goes under the hammer in our 16 June online auction offered freehold with vacant possession upon completion
HOW MUCH? – it is being offered with a pre-auction guide price of £125-135,000.
If you would like to stroll around this idyllic lot – why not book in for a viewing. Bidding opens for the online auction on Tuesday 14 June and concludes 16 June – happy bidding.
