Sweet Success of Property Auction

December 2022

Auctioneers Greenslade Taylor Hunt were delighted with the results achieved at their latest monthly auction at the Batch Country House Hotel, in Lympsham.

A rumoured downturn in the housing market felt like “fake news” as various properties were exchanged prior to auction resulting in a reduced catalogue on sale day.

Both land lots at Pawlett, Bridgwater, had been sold prior to auction together with a four bedroom detached family home in Barrington Road at Burnham-on-Sea, guided for auction at £230,000.
At the auction 2 blocks of moorland at Tealham Moor, Wedmore both reached their guide levels achieving £3,921 and £4,577 per acre.

However the highlight of the day was Sweet Briar Cottage, at Lower Claverham, near Bristol. This delightful renovation opportunity comprised a charming Grade II Listed semi-detached cottage in grounds of approximately one third of an acre, situated on the edge of the village.

Although the property had been extended and renovated over recent years it retained a wealth of character features and with a delightful garden, offered a wonderful opportunity to modernise and improve further.

The Burnham-on-Sea office reported strong interest and the property finally went under the hammer at £420,000 on the day. A further development opportunity on the outskirts of Burnham-on-Sea comprising the redevelopment of a barn, cottage and garage and the erection of three detached residential dwellings sold for £245,000.

Greenslade Taylor Hunt’s next round of property auctions will be held online on 14th December 2022.
