  • Unconditional Online Auction Sale
  • Guide Price* : £275,000 - £295,000*†



A fine detached property located on Lynn Road and occupying a good plot of land extending to over 3 acres (subject to measured survey). Offering well arranged accommodation on two floors with 7-8 bedrooms, depending how you look at the layout. In particular, the house has a lovely feel with a wide entrance hall linking in with the principal reception rooms, with front and back staircase leading to the first floor. Although there is some improvement work to carry out, the property has been occupied recently and is in reasonable condition throughout. Buyers will certainly want to carry out improvements and may even want to extend the property, subject to the necessary planning consent being forthcoming, but the layout of the rooms lends itself to a family home.

Outside the grounds, which extend to approximately 3 acres (STMS), are a major feature of the property and are divided up into formal garden area together with amenity space. The plan attached identifies the area included with the property, which is approached from the road via a drive leading past the adjoining farmyard and round to Plantation Farm.

Japanese knotweed is present in the outer part of the garden and a management program is in place with a certified contractor. The purchaser will be required to continue with the management program.

How It Works: Unconditional Timed Auction Online: This is a binding method of sale similar to a traditional public property auction. The only difference is the bidding takes place on line. The successful purchaser will be required to pay a 10% deposit (subject to a minimum payment of £5,000) on the fall of the virtual gavel and contracts will be exchanged. Bidding for properties online works in a similar fashion to eBay. You can place bids using your PC, tablet or mobile phone and the minimum amount you can bid is defined by the 'bid increment' level. When you place a bid, the property listing page will show you if your bid was successful and whether or not you are the highest bidder. When you are the highest bidder on a property, if another bidder outbids you the system will notify you by email so that you can place another bid if you wish. The major difference from eBay is that our system eradicates sudden death 'bid sniping' through the use of auction 'extension times'. If you have any questions or require any clarification please contact the auctioneer.
