17th century home being auctioned in the East Midlands

A Grade II listed house is going under the hammer at Bond Wolfe’s next auction on 9 February.

The property is a four-bedroom end terrace house in Swadlincote on the Derbyshire/Leicestershire border.

8 Top Street

The home at 8 Top Street, Appleby Magna, is likely to have been built around 1650.

The property is in need of modernisation and refurbishment work, and is therefore listed with a guide price of £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.
