17th century home heads the list of selection of properties
A historic Grade II listed house in need of some TLC heads a broad selection of properties from across the East Midlands that are coming up for sale at Bond Wolfe’s next auction on Wednesday 9 February.
A four bedroom end terrace house in the village near Swadlincote, on the Derbyshire/Leicestershire border, 8 Top Street, Appleby Magna, is a unique property packed full of character. Built in the 17th century – probably around 1650 – the house is listed for its special architectural interest.
But, in need of modernisation and refurbishment work throughout, it is listed with a guide price* of just £155,000+.
Gurpreet Bassi, chief executive of Bond Wolfe, said: “It is highly unusual for a historic property such as this to come on the market at such a price – it really does present a unique opportunity to create a singular family home.
“We are expecting the house in Top Street to attract considerable interest from both across the UK and abroad, generating highly competitive bidding on the day of the auction.”
With a drive to the front and a rear garden with a summer house, the property also includes a garage. The ground floor includes a hall with a WC off, a reception room and kitchen with access to a three-room cellar.
Two bedrooms and a bathroom with WC are on the first floor, with a further two interconnected bedrooms on the second floor.
Among the other properties listed in the auction brochure is a two bedroomed end terrace house at 67 Chatsworth Street, Sutton-in-Ashfield, in Nottinghamshire, with a guide price of just £25,000+.
In need of modernisation, it has two reception rooms, kitchen and shower room with WC on the ground floor with two bedrooms on the first floor as well as access to a large attic room.
Also in need of modernisation is 111 Carter Lane, a three bedroom semi-detached house in Mansfield, which has come on to the market for the first time in 45 years.
With a guide price of £50,000+, it has a hall, two reception rooms, kitchen and pantry on the ground floor with three bedrooms and the bathroom with WC upstairs. There are gardens outside, gas fired central heating and partial double glazing.
Location is the key to the two bedroomed end terrace house at 151 Hermitage Road, in the historic Leicestershire village of Whitwick, near Coalville, Leicestershire.
It is next door to the Hermitage day nursery and across the road from Hermitage Fishing Lake and Recreation Ground.
With a guide price of £50,000, this newly refurbished property has gardens front and rear, with two reception rooms and the kitchen downstairs and the two bedrooms and bathroom with WC upstairs.
There are outhouses in the rear garden and the property has gas fired central heating and double glazing.
Mr Bassi added: “We have a range of properties from across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire coming up at our February auction, all offering excellent value for those looking to get a foot on the property ladder, those looking for their next home or investors aiming to expand their buy-to-let portfolio.”
