About this property

Joint Agent


The property comprises a two storey detached building of brick elevations, partially rendered, set beneath a series of flat roofs and a pitched tiled roof to the original building. We are informed that the original building was constructed in the 19th Century as a church which was converted into a school. The club came into occupation of the property in 1971 and substantially extended the building in the late 1970’s. To the side and rear there is an enclosed beer patio and yard.

Overall the site extends to 0.23 acres.

The property will be sold with vacant possession and will include the fixtures and fittings. The property would be suitable for a number of uses, subject to the relevant consents.

* Guide Price

An indication of the seller’s current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

* Reserve Price

The seller’s minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer.

Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.

Buyer's Fee

A successful purchaser will also be required to pay a Buyer’s Administration Charge of 1.2% of the purchase price subject to a minimum fee of £1,800 including VAT (unless stated otherwise within the property description in the catalogue) by debit card or bank transfer.

Legal Packs

You are bidding on the basis that you have made all necessary enquiries, particularly in respect of lots the auctioneer has not inspected or had initial sight of tenancy details, and have checked the General and Special Conditions of Sale and are satisfied that you fully understand their content. Please note that some legal packs may contain additional fees (such as the requirement for the seller to pay the vendor's legal fees)
