An Idyllic Fishing Lake / Duck Pond 

Coming up first is Lot 14, a stunning stretch of water and surrounding grassland. Located at Knight’s Farm, on Grove Road in Canterbury, this Lot offers buyers an escape to the country — literally. 

Perfect for relaxing, fishing, or bird watching, this parcel of land and splash of water will make for hours of entertainment. This freehold parcel of land currently sits at 12 acres with a 3-metre wide track for vehicular access off Grove Road.

If you’re interested in bird-watching, this is definitely one to watch at our auction. This lot has a bird-watching hide overlooking the lake as well as a site office. In the future, this lot has the potential for on-site development in the form of more bird-watching hides or even holiday-style lodges in the grassland area (subject to all necessary consents being obtainable).

The guide price for this lot is £125,000 and £135,000. If you require more information ahead of the auction, give Kevin Gilbert a call on 01622 608400.

 

Former Chapel with Planning for Three Houses

Up next is Lot 5, a former chapel located between the villages of Upchurch and Lower Halstow. This property has plenty of potential and has obtained planning permission for three houses with parking to be built on site — if the future owner so chooses, that is. If the chapel is converted, it will become three two-storey terraced houses: each with a generous three bedrooms and parking. Planning permission has been granted by Swale Borough Council.

The guide price for this lot is set at £300,000+. To arrange a viewing or find more information, call Jon Rimmer or John Stockey on 01622 608400.

 

Freehold Block of 13 Flats for Investment

Coming in at Lot 11 is an amazing opportunity to own a freehold block of thirteen flats. Verdon House was previously part of a convent but, for the past few years, has provided residential accommodation for 12 tenants.

Located just a short distance from the main centre of East Cowes, this property enjoys a car ferry link to Southampton as well as a bustling commercial environment nearby. 12 of the flats are let under the terms of Assured Shorthold Tenancies and provide a very worthwhile income. Though, the thirteenth flat, Flat N, requires some refurbishment to be let out again. 

This property is unique in its size and charm, with the tenants enjoying their own resident’s car park and communal gardens. The guide price for this property is  £750,000+ and we can see why!

If this sounds like an unmissable opportunity for you, get in touch with Rob or Mike Marchant on 01489 564606. 

 

Detached Bungalow for Refurbishment

Now we switch to something a little smaller. Lot 50 takes the form of a detached bungalow in Lower Stoke in Rochester. 

This bungalow sits on a rectangular-shaped site of roughly 0.31 acres. As it stands, the property is in need of improvement, but there is potential for development here — subject to all necessary consents being obtainable. 

In the past, this property has been used as a petrol filling station; however, for many years now it has been a private dwelling with a garden and open fields to the front and rear.

This property contains three large bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, and a bathroom.

This property is set at a guide price of £240,000 to £250,000. If you’d like more information, or to arrange a viewing call John Stockey or Chris Milne on 01622 608400.

 

End-of-Terrace Three-Bedroom House

Last but not least, we have Lot 73. This property is located in Fareham in Hampshire, a popular town with all the facilities a family would need.

As an end-of-terrace property, there is lots of space to the side of the house, as well as off-road parking to the front, and a rear garden with its own shed.

Getting to the property itself, there is an entrance hall, living room, kitchen, and separate dining room on the ground floor, as well as three bedrooms and a bathroom with W.C on the first floor. 

This lot is in need of some TLC to say the least, though the improvements are largely cosmetic such as painting and lights. Once these changes are made, this property may be excellent for renting or selling on, retaining its value well. 

Lot 73 has a guide price of £250,000+. To book a viewing or find out more, call Mike or Rob Marchant on 01489 564606.
