Property Description

West Lawn is widely regard as being one of the finest examples of Victorian Terrace architecture within the North of England. It’s located with a fabulous setting and open aspect of the Cricket and Rugby Football Ground to the front along a charming tree lined avenue. The imposing family home is believed to date from the late 1800’s and features seven bedrooms, three reception rooms, kitchen, conservatory, substantial useable basement rooms along with double garaging and driveway. Due to the age of the building it retains many of its original style features including high ceilings, sash windows, focal fireplaces and decorative coving and moulding. There is gas central heating and some double glazing. The house now requires refurbishment and updating but offers an incredible opportunity for someone to renovate into a family home, air bnb option or consider re-development into flats which will be subject to planning and building regulation approvals. Viewing is strongly recommended.

* 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.
