Addendum To Printed Catalogue

The seller advises that this property has been used as a residential care home since 2003 and therefore, we believe, has commercial status. However, purchasers are to rely on their own searches and enquiries with the local authority in this regard.

Property Description

Offering the buyer a unique opportunity to purchase this substantial 11 bedroom dwelling located opposite Clifton Park. The former care home was originally two large Victorian homes previously known as Edgecumbe and Parkside, which then were converted into one dwelling to create 11 bedrooms with en suite facilities. The accommodation is over 4 floors (including cellars) of around 8400sq ft or 778sq mt with gas central heating, burglar alarm and fire alarm system in place. The property has many of its original style features including sash windows, high ceiling with decorative mouldings, feature original style fireplaces and original skirting boards. The property has generally been well maintained with modern kitchens and communal rooms but there is evidence of some structural movement on site and interested parties are asked to make their own enquiries in this matter.

This property will suit a variety of buyers looking for onward development and viewings are advised to appreciate the opportunity offered.

* 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.

Buyers 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 £1,500 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).
