SDL Property Auctions dominates November auctions market

A fundraising sweepstake will add an extra level of excitement to SDL Property Auctions’ National Property Auction this month as viewers are invited to guess the final selling price of the first three lots of the day.  

SDL Property Auctions has launched another 200+ lot catalogue ahead of its penultimate National Property Auction of the year on Thursday 25th November, an event which will raise funds for one of its team members in the approach to Christmas. 

Earlier this year SDL Property Auctions colleague, Sara Mosley gave birth to her first child, a baby boy called Mason. However, a few weeks later she was rushed to hospital with an infection on the brain. She has since had a lengthy hospital stay and multiple surgeries which saved her life but have left her with a long recovery period ahead.

Anyone can enter the sweepstake for a £10 donation, with the opportunity to win a top prize of £250, and £100 and £50 for the two runners-up.  All money raised from the sweepstake will help support Sara and her family. 

Managing director and auctioneer Andrew Parker said: “We cannot imagine what Sara and her family have been through so are keen to support them at this difficult time with a sweepstake on our first three lots. When making their guesses, entrants should consider the potential of each lot as well as their guide prices.”

One of the sweepstake lots with a plenty of potential is a former chapel in Derby with a *guide price of £195,000+. St Thomas Methodist Church in St Thomas Road is a 1960s building which has been converted to an assembly hall with dining hall and meeting rooms. At the side is a driveway leading to a rear car park. 

Andrew said: “This lot is in a great position in a bustling part of Derby city and is a fabulous opportunity for redevelopment or conversion to a number of alternative uses, subject to planning permission. We’ve had a great deal of interest in this lot already and look forward to seeing it go under the hammer.”

The National Property Auction will once again be the UK’s biggest live-streamed property auction of the month for the fourth month running, with a catalogue of more than 200 residential and commercial lots around the country.

Another divine development opportunity, subject to planning permission, is the former Bridge Street Methodist Church in Pilsley, Derbyshire. With a guide price of £80,000+, the 1930s single-storey property features a chapel, office, kitchen and amenity space.

Elsewhere in Derbyshire, an imposing late Victorian four bedroomed semi-detached property is expected to attract interest from bidders. Set well back from the road in an elevated position, 97 Heage Road in Ripley requires a comprehensive scheme of improvement, although it retains some attractive original features including deep skirting boards and ornate cast iron open fireplaces. The property has four bedrooms, potential for a loft conversion subject to the usual planning consents and a garage at the rear. Its guide price is £110,000+.

Landlords who want to hit the ground running will be interested in a two bedroomed mid-terraced property in Liverpool which is being offered for sale with a tenant in situ. Conveniently located for the city centre, transport links and amenities, 60 Enid Street is currently let at £475 per calendar month, making it an ideal investment opportunity. The guide price is £86,000+.  

For those with Scandinavian aspirations, there is a rare opportunity to own a unique Swedish timber house of non-standard construction in a Northamptonshire village.

Previously let and now requiring modernisation, 8 Swedish Houses in Main Street, Little Brington (pictured) is a semi-detached house on a large private plot with fields to the side and rear and countryside views. The three bedroomed property, which has a guide price of £195,000+, offers a great opportunity to create a superb family home. 

Buyers seeking a home which is ready to move into and enjoy immediately should check out a North Yorkshire property which offers an abundance of luxury, character and space. The Old Mill in Dalehouse, Staithes, Saltburn-By-The-Sea is an impressive riverside property on a beautiful plot of around six acres with sporting rights. 

Located in the picturesque hamlet of Dalehouse, the historic property features a Grade II Listed bridge and the ruins of a mill which is mentioned in the Doomsday Book.

The property is impeccably presented and sympathetically decorated and, with five bedrooms and a range of outbuildings, has the potential for business use as a bed and breakfast or up to five holiday lets, subject to planning permission. 

Andrew added: “These are just a small sample of the huge range of residential and commercial properties we have available in our November National Property Auction. We are looking forward to getting back into the auction studio to get some great prices for our sellers – while raising money for Sara and her family at the same time.”
