Duchy mansion to go under the hammer

A detached turn of the century former Coach House, in the exclusive “Duchy” area of Harrogate, will go under the hammer at FSS Property’s October auction.

Estate agents FSS, who specialise in selling homes by both auction and private treaty, are currently arranging viewings of this substantial property, which is on a mature plot down a private road off Cornwall Road.

Auctioneer and residential sales expert Richard Smailes said: “It’s in such a private location, tucked away from the main road and backing onto the Pinewoods, that most people won’t even know it’s there.” Yet it is within walking distance of the town!

“It hasn’t been on the market for over 40 years, retains many original features and truly offers that “once in a lifetime opportunity.”

The four bedroom detached house on Cornwall Road has a guide price of £750,000 and is a rare and unique opportunity to bid for a unique home in a prime location.

More homes under the hammer

The October auction will also feature a Victorian terrace in Ripon arranged over three floors with cellar storage and a garage on Kirkby Road in Ripon. Guide price £190,000.

Property hunters looking for a project in Harrogate can bid for a three bedroom semi on Oakdale Avenue with a guide price of £150,000 and an extended three bedroom semi-detached bungalow on Fountains Avenue which has a guide price of £140,000.

Land for sale

If you are looking for land to build your own house, FSS will be auctioning a plot of just over 0.33 of an acre in size will full planning approval for one detached home. The site is on Pool Bank New Road in Pool in Wharfedale and has a guide price of £150,000.

Investment property in Otley

The thriving market town of Otley has a vibrant independent business community and is a desirable place to live. Going under the hammer is an immaculate investment property with a ground floor café, which has been trading on the site for over 20 years, and a self-contained first and second floor maisonette.  The current annual rental is £10,880 and thus delivers a gross yield close to 10% based on the guide price of £110,000.

Garage storage

Storage is in high demand at the moment, particularly in Harrogate and FSS is expecting high levels of interest in a garage off Bilton Lane. The lock up has full height double doors and is being offered with a guide price of £10,000.
