Georgian property among lots at November auction



From a ‘cuckoo’s nest’ and converted film studios flat to an underground reservoir and Tranquil Passage, Clive Emson Auctioneers has 153 lots on offer in its latest auction.

“Cuckoo’s Nest”

Cuckoo’s Nest (lot 38) is a four-bedroom detached Georgian house in Trinity Square, Margate, Kent. The property, untouched for many years, has a guide price of £220-240,000 and is among 153 lots listed across southern England and Wales.

The auction opens for 48 hours and ends on 2 November.

In the listing are 55 vacant residential properties, 38 investment properties, 30 commercial lots, 17 grazing sites and 13 development sites.

James Emson, managing director of Clive Emson Auctioneers, said: “We anticipate keen interest in the latest variety of lots, priced to suit all manner of budgets.

“It is hard to believe we have already reached the penultimate auction of the year and the increase in the Stamp Duty threshold is sure to have an effect on the popularity of some lots, especially from first-time buyers who have been keeping a keen eye on the auction market this year.

“Our September auction saw numerous first-time buyers looking to purchase their first home, along with first-time investors and developers choosing our auctions as the first step of their property journey.

“This trend really does show that auctions truly do cater for everyone and offer a fast and transparent route to market.”
