Clive Emson gets ready for biggest sale of the year

Clive Emson Auctioneers is cataloguing a bumper 170 lots for its September sale, making it the auctioneer’s biggest event of the year so far.

The sale, which is the sixth of eight sales throughout 2019, is from 9-13 September across the south of England at five regional venues.

James Emson, managing director of Clive Emson, comments: “Once again we have a mouth-watering array of land and property across our regions. Although many outlets are reporting a downturn, our last auction has seen over 76% of lots sold raising £22 million.”


He adds that, with the catalogue featuring a large variety of property types, strong bidding is to be expected.

Highlights of the September auction include:

  • The Plough Inn pub on a plot of 0.22 hectares (0.55 acres) in the scenic village of Grateley, near Andover, Hants, has a freehold guide price of £350,000-£370,000.
  • A disused concrete water tower with countryside views at Aston near Stevenage, currently let for mobile phone mast use but with potential, has a freehold guide of £60,000-£65,000.
