Auction will see piece of woodland in Wickham and derelict house in Fareham go under the hammer
A PIECE of woodland, a high street shop and a derelict house are just a few of the lots up for auction next month.
Bidding is live from Monday, May 3, with the auction ending on Wednesday, May 5 for the next Clive Emson land and property auction.
Among its 135 lots is a gravel pit copse next to a golf course in Titchfield Lane, Wickham, guided freehold at £40,000-plus.
Rob Marchant, Clive Emson’s Hampshire auctioneer and a member of Portsmouth Property Association, said: ‘We anticipate keen interest from bidders who wish to own a slice of wooded Hampshire – the site has been largely left to nature in more recent times and you may find a few lost golf balls.’
Also listed is a mixed commercial and residential investment at 5 High Street, Fareham guided freehold at £420-450,000 and was previously let at £34,200 per annum.
Rob said: ‘The ground floor unit is let to a hair salon, under a 10-year commercial lease at £16,800 per annum. One of the flats above has two bedrooms, the other one. Both have a living room, kitchen and a shower room with WC.’
A semi-derelict house on a quarter acre plot at 3 Segensworth Road, Fareham, is guided freehold at £170,000-plus and has four bedrooms.
Rob said: ‘The house is not considered habitable because it is in a poor state of repair. A prospective purchaser may wish to save the property, which is on an attractive plot. Alternatively, subject to planning consents, the site may be suitable for redevelopment.’
A ground floor flat, with allocated parking and a lock-up store, at 1 Everell Court, Clarendon Road, Southsea, is leasehold with a guide price of £80-85,000. It is currently let at £7,140 per annum.
A two-bedroom first floor flat at 125A High Street, Gosport, currently let at £7,200 per annum, is guided leasehold at £85-90,000.
Guided at £130,000-plus, a two-bedroom leasehold flat at 22A Claire Gardens, Clanfield, Waterlooville, is let at £7,728 per annum, with a ground rental of £25 per annum.
Rob said: ‘The flat, on a 99-year year from 1974 and in a cul-de-sac, is considered ideal for addition to an income-producing property portfolio.’
Myrtle Cottage at 35 Church Road, Steep, near Petersfield, was built in 1887 and is guided freehold at £360-390,000.
Rob said: ‘Myrtle Cottage has the advantage of a planning consent for a two-storey rear extension and these works have been commenced but require completion, beyond which the reward will be a splendid dwelling for occupation, or perhaps for letting or holiday use.
‘Myrtle Cottage is sited on a plot which enjoys the benefit of off-road car parking to the front and attractive open views to the rear.’
