Burnham-On-Sea auctioneers Greenslade Taylor Hunt say they were pleased with the results of their latest monthly auction at the Batch Country House Hotel in Lympsham.
Talk of a downturn in the housing market did not hold back transactions as various properties were exchanged prior to the auction resulting in a reduced catalogue on the sale day.
A spokesman says two land lots at Pawlett had been sold prior to auction together with a four bedroom detached family home in Barrington Road in Burnham-On-Sea, guided for auction at £230,000.
At the auction, two blocks of moorland at Tealham Moor in Wedmore both reached their guide levels, achieving £3,921 and £4,577 per acre.
However, the highlight of the day was Sweet Briar Cottage, at Lower Claverham, near Bristol. This renovation opportunity comprised a Grade II Listed semi-detached cottage in grounds of approximately one third of an acre, situated on the edge of the village.
The Burnham-On-Sea office says there was “strong interest” and the property finally went under the hammer at £420,000 on the day.
A further development opportunity on the outskirts of Burnham-On-Sea comprising the redevelopment of a barn, cottage and garage and the erection of three detached residential dwellings sold for £245,000.
