The year may be coming to an end (and what a 2021 it has been!) but that doesn’t mean we’re taking our foot off the pedal when it comes to offering both buyers and sellers amazing opportunities with our online auctions.
We’ve got two auctions to go before we wrap up for the year, starting with our November auction, which will take place online on Wednesday the 3rd. With 105 lots ready to go, it’ll be hard to decide where to start!
Not to worry, as always we’ve picked out five of the properties we think buyers should keep a lookout for. Read on to discover this month’s top picks…
Fancy Your Own Farm?
This six-acre lot has been in the same family for generations, promising a well-looked-after and nostalgic landholding. Comprised of a generous scattering of paddocks, a range of buildings, and a stunning lily pond, this scenic property fits in well with the rural Thames Estuary coastal walk that borders it.
With a starting price of just £180,000, this farm is perfect for those wanting to escape to the country for a reasonable price. So, for a green, clean property that almost seems to take you back in time, keep an eye out for Lot 23 this November.
Substantial 12-flat Block
This vast, mid-terrace block of flats in Whitstable is remarkably unique in its interior spaciousness and potential. Currently consisting of four first-floor flats and restaurant premises, this property has the scope to house a whole host of lucky residents.
Since planning permission has recently been granted for the building to be converted into 12 self-contained flats, any potential buyer looking to be a landlord will strike gold with this one! Starting at £1.2m, Lot 63 is an investment but its central location and extras (like parking proximity to the railway, and ensuites) will make it worthwhile.
Something to Grab Your ‘Attention!’
This former drill hall and surrounding land is a property like no other. With its rich militant history, iconic location, and intriguing architecture, Lot 94 is definitely going to have a lot of buyers standing to attention.
This property on the Isle of Wight, boasting 0.55 acres of accompanying land, is optimal for both residential conversion or complete demolition and rebuild, depending on your plans. So, you know the drill, if this ex-drill hall seems like your next project, watch out for it at our upcoming auction and it could be yours for just £250,000!
A Warehouse of Opportunity
With a guide price starting at just £165,000, this office and warehouse facility is an absolute steal!
Buyers looking for an exciting renovation project should keep a lookout for this two-storey property at our upcoming auction. With two offices, a toilet, kitchen facilities, and the potential to become a warehouse, this unit is unique in its charm — but also its location.
Lot 82 is extremely well-connected, situated just a stone’s throw from Eltham train station and with quick A2 access to London, if this is the location for your next business venture, you won’t need to compromise on access.
Make Your Own Mark with Howfield Cottage
Take a stroll through the south of Canterbury just past Howfield Farm and you’ll find a row of beautiful terraced cottages known as Howfield Cottages. The site is composed of four individual cottages and both number two and number three are up for grabs in our November auction this month.
While the cottages have retained their charm, they both are in need of some modernisation and redecoration as they have not been updated in quite a while. However, this provides the lucky buyer with the freedom to turn these beautiful little cottages into something truly unique with their own sense of taste and style.
Plus, with a guide price of £175,000 – £180,000, we expect this to be a popular property come auction time!
