Three established auctioneers will be combining their talents to sell SDL Auctions’ biggest catalogue yet, with more than 200 properties set to go under the hammer this month.
Andrew Parker, Rory Daly and Graham Penny – all familiar faces to viewers of BBC TV’s Homes Under the Hammer – will return to the rostrum for the sale on Thursday August 27. The auction will be live-streamed from SDL Auctions’ head office, featuring properties from across the UK.
Since lockdown began, SDL Auctions has offered an uninterrupted service to its customers, selling more than 700 lots and raising more than £90 million for sellers.
Its upcoming auction will be the first time since 2008 that any auctioneer has offered a 200-plus catalogue in August, which is traditionally a quiet month for the property market.
Andrew Parker, managing director and auctioneer, comments: “We are delighted to have topped that magical 200 figure in this month’s auction and to have our full team of auctioneers back together for a bumper day at the rostrum.”
One property that is set to attract viewers is 19 Highfield Crescent in Rowley Regis. From the road, the property appears to be a standard bungalow, but clever use of a sloping plot means it offers two-storey accommodations at the rear.
The ground floor boasts spacious living accommodation with four bedrooms, while the lower ground floor provides the potential to be adapted into independent living accommodation and currently features a second living room and a further bedroom with en-suite.
The detached property, which has a large private rear garden and panoramic views, is sold in partnership with Taylors and has a guide price of £230,000+.
Another attractive family home can be found east of Sheffield, where 11 Paddington Close in Laughton Common, Dinnington, is a well-presented modern three-bedroom semi close to amenities and convenient for the M1.
The property features an entrance hall, cloakroom, lounge and dining kitchen on the ground floor, with three bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. It has a low-maintenance garden and patio at the rear with driveway parking. The guide price is £115,000+.
Elsewhere, 4 Cottons Acre in Boyton, Suffolk is a two-bedroom semi-detached house with open fields and access to Boyton and Hollesley Marshes. The property offers the opportunity to add value through upgrading and refurbishment, with the potential to extend subject to planning permission. It has a guide of £125,000+.
A further development opportunity can be found in Stockport, where 12 Kennerley Road sits on a substantial plot, with good transport links to Stockport Town Centre and Manchester City Centre. The attractive property has a guide of £310,000+ and provides the opportunity to extend or build, subject to planning permission.
Located in the popular Derbyshire market town of Ashbourne, 41 Market Place is a Grade II listed double-fronted building, formerly housing a successful Cantonese restaurant, with the potential for up to 180 covers over two floors, plus living accommodation on the top floor.
