Former signal box among 143 lots to be sold under the hammer

Clive Emson has released a new catalogue ahead of its five-day sale in June, which includes a wide selection of lots for sale, including a former signal box directly on the platform at Torre Railway Station in South Devon and the freehold of a care home in Sussex and a historic house in Essex once owned by the founder of the Courtauld Company.

June highlights from the company, which works with estate agents across southern England to boost property listings, include a partially converted barn on 13.23 acres in Kenardington, near Ashford in Kent, with a freehold guide price of £400 to £410,000, and a signal box on the platform at Torre Railway Station, near Torquay in Devon, with a freehold guide of £85,000 to £115,000.

The sale, which will take place 12-16 June, will also include an 18-bedroom care home currently let at £43,260 per annum in Seaford, Sussex, with a guide of £500,000 plus, a mixed investment property let at £16,200 in Ventnor on the Isle of Wight with a freehold guide of £170,000 to £180,000, as well as an historic mill house in Braintree, Essex, once owned by the founder of the famed Courtauld Company, with a freehold guide of £290,000 to £300,000.


Managing director James Emson said: “Our post-election auction will give everyone the chance to take their minds off politics for a while.

“We have had two excellent auctions in March and May – showing that our vendors and purchasers really do see the value in electing to do business at Clive Emson land and property sales.

“It makes perfect sense to cast your vote to attend our June auction to see the sheer variety of lots on offer from Essex to the West Country – ranging from a railway station signal box to the freehold of a care home.”

Clive Emson holds a regional auction at five locations every six weeks. The June sale, starting at 11am, is at the following venues:

+ Essex & North and East London – Monday June 12 at the Chelmsford City Racecourse, Chelmsford.

+ Kent & SE London – Tuesday, June 13 at the Clive Emson Conference Centre, Detling, Maidstone, Kent.

+ Sussex & Surrey – Wednesday June 14 at the Hilton Brighton Metropole, Brighton.

+ West Country – Thursday June 15, at the St Mellion International Resort, Saltash.

+ Hampshire & Isle of Wight – Friday, June 16, at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton.

    What an interesting property. The freehold guide price of £400 to £410,000 seems a bit of a wide range though?
