An island is amongst the eighty three lots to be offered by Sutton Kersh Auctions at Merseyside's final property auction of 2012. The event will take place on Thursday 6th December at the Liverpool City Centre Marriott Hotel in Queens Square.

Bidders have the unique opportunity to acquire a freehold island located in the Menai Strait. Full planning has been obtained to rebuild the existing boatyard in Gwynedd which has outstanding views of the coastline. There is pedestrian access from the mainland to the development land. The island will be offered as lot 60 and it is guided at £140,000+.

A residential investment property on Edge Lane which is currently producing £28,512 per annum will also go under the hammer. The three-storey semi-detached property with basement has been converted to provide five self-contained one-bedroom flats. Each flat is let individually by way of an Assured Shorthold Tenancy and benefits from double glazing and central heating. The property is guided at £165,000+ and will be offered as lot 13.

The leading Merseyside auction house has had a fantastic year so far achieving a selling average of seventy eight percent after selling three hundred and ninety five properties and generating total proceeds exceeding £25.8 million across six auctions.
