Manors under the Hammer

Three gorgeous period manor homes are set to be sold under the hammer at Network Auctions’ 4th April ballroom sale at The Westbury Mayfair Hotel, London.

Fairlea in Northam, Bideford, Devon is an impressive mid-Victorian Grade II listed detached house guided at £650,000+. Originally constructed between 1872 and 1877 the main building was later adapted into a residential home for the elderly, extended in the 1960s and then further modernised in the 1990s. Still retaining many original architectural features, the building set in 1.31 acres, is being sold with the benefit of detailed planning permission and listed building consent for nine apartments and five houses.

Tolverth House, Long Rock, Penzance, Cornwall is a majestic double bay fronted property with views extending over St Michael’s Mount and is guided at £475,000+. The former care home comprises the main house, a one bedroom first floor flat forming part of the stable conversion, a detached bungalow and further outbuildings. Set within a site of 1.34 acres the property offers development potential subject to planning. Planning was granted in 2011 for an eight-bedroom extension to the property, but this has now lapsed.

Prospect House, St Leonards Road, Newton Abbot, Devon is a picture perfect period home guided at £350,000+. The substantial detached property offers five bedrooms across 2,696 sq.ft. overlooking the market town of Newton Abbot. In addition to the spacious accommodation on the ground and first floors, the property has a large cellar with natural light and a door with its own separate access. An original coach house/ garage also offers potential for conversion or renovation, subject to planning.

All three properties will be sold via Network Auctions. For more information contact 020 7871 0420 www.networkauctions.co.uk
