It’s time for another look back at a month of excitement for buyers and sellers with our September auction roundup!
The month saw a total of 161 lots available to purchase – and purchase you did. A whopping 128 properties successfully went under the hammer to some very happy buyers indeed. Unfortunately, we can’t all be winners in the world of auctions (there were 2,334 unique bidders after all!), but there’ll be another exciting chance to both buy and sell with our next online auction in November.
For now, though, let’s take a look back at some of the unique properties that sold at our September auction…
A Penthouse in Portsmouth
Properties close to the sea are always popular choices at our auctions and this month proved to be no different. This penthouse building occupying the whole of the top floor offers stunning views over Portsmouth Harbour, including views of the famous Spinnaker tower!
The property also boasts two beautiful bedrooms and its very own wraparound balcony – perfect for soaking in a beautiful sunset. All of these fabulous features resulted in the property selling for a total of £701,000 – congratulations to the lucky buyer!
A Slice of Country Life
Sometimes our buyers are just looking for a slice of the country, which is why this charming semi-detached cottage located in the even more charming hamlet of St. Mary Hoo proved one of the most popular lots in our September auction.
The three-bedroom cottage requires both refurbishment and modernisation but comes with the possibility of extension which many of our buyers took as a wonderful opportunity to turn the cottage into something truly special. The property sold for a total of £250,000 in total! We can’t wait to see what the new owner does with the property next.
A One of a Kind Investment
While some of our buyers are looking for their next family home, many are seeking exciting investment opportunities of which September’s auction had plenty.
This investment opportunity in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks is comprised of twelve residential studio units – all of which haven’t been available for sale since 2003! With such an attractive opportunity, it’s perhaps no surprise that this lot ended up selling for £1.1 million!
From a Chapel to a Home
Conversions aren’t an uncommon sight at our auctions but it’s not every day we see a traditional methodist chapel converted into a one bed dwelling!
The chapel in Ruckinge offers all the features you would expect from a one-bedroom home, with some of the church’s original features remaining for that added charm. Despite its rather small size, the chapel boasts plenty of space through its mezzanines, including one above that can be used as an additional storage area.
All of this certainly attracted the attention of many prospective buyers, with the property eventually selling for £177,000.
Water We Have Here?
From a converted chapel to a water tower, there was certainly no lack of unique properties in this September auction!
Situated in North Essex in the village of Widdington, this water tower is situated on 0.25 acres of land sold for £190,000. What’s to become of this unusual property purchase? That remains to be seen but we’re excited to find out!
