Will there be hope for Hopetoun House?

Beyond the graffitied exterior and shuttered security windows, Hopetoun House, 9 Hopetoun Road, Bristol offers what Network Auctions call ‘potential’, all for a guide price of £525,000+.

The four-bedroom, three-reception room detached house which served as a former property for Places for People, would ‘benefit from refurbishment’.

Toby Limbrick, auctioneer, said, ‘Hopetoun House is a fine period property occupying a corner plot with parking in the sought-after St Werburgh’s district. This is a handsome house in an area renowned for it’s community feel and attractive Georgian and Victorian architecture.’

‘Even though Hopetoun House is only a few minutes’ drive from the centre, it benefits from a more rural outlook with views over neighbouring allotments and towards St Werburgh’s City Farm.’

‘At 1460 sq ft any new purchaser would have plenty of space to convert to a large family house, or potentially develop into flats or a House of Multiple Occupation. There is also a large loft and space for an extension.’

‘We very much hope the new owner will maximise the potential on offer at this site and bring this fine building back into use soon.’

Hopetoun House, 9 Hopetoun Road, Bristol will be sold by Network Auctions via online auction on 8th July. For more information: www.networkauctions.co.uk
