About this property

For sale by online auction on 15th May 2024. Bidding window opens 14th May at 11am. Guide £150,000 - £165,000 plus fees.

Wellingham Cottage comprises a semi-detached house constructed of colour-washed brickwork with a pitched main roof and occupying a good plot of land extending to at least half an acre or thereabouts at the side (STMS) and with a great deal of privacy.

The house has been occupied by the same family for many years and is in poor condition. The accommodation includes two sitting rooms, dining area, kitchen and utility room on the ground floor, together with 3/4 bedrooms (depending how you look at the accommodation) and bathroom on the first floor.

Outside, the grounds are more than adequate for a property of this of size and type and are overgrown, although they could be improved and form a most delightful area.

The whole requires renovation and improvement and there is scope to extend at the side, subject to the necessary planning consent being forthcoming.

Please note: Buyers should satisfy themselves as to the availability of services. Any purchaser will need to install a new drainage system in any event.

Solicitor: Hatch Brenner LLP (Attn Donna Dascombe), 4 Theatre Street, Norwich, NR2 1QY. Tel: 01603 660811

The property is located on the edge of Great Fransham, on Beeston Lane, itself forming a residential settlement with a number of other properties, although there is a great deal of privacy. Easy access to the A47 trunk road and the market towns of Swaffham, Fakenham and Dereham are within striking distance. This is an excellent opportunity to live tucked away in a special place, with scope to create your own home.

Proceed out of Norwich on Dereham Road and then take A47 trunk road heading towards King's Lynn. Continue past Dereham and then on reaching Little Fransham turn right onto Station Road and proceed for about 1 mile. Turn onto Beeston Lane and the property will be seen on the left hand side.

Buyer Fees: Please note that the successful bidder will be required to pay an Administration Charge of £1,170 inclusive of VAT. This fee is due and payable from the winning bidder immediately after the timed auction ends. The successful bidder will additionally pay over to the auctioneer a deposit of 10% of the purchase price, subject to a minimum of £5,000, after the timed auction ends. All payments to be made by debit card payment or electronic bank transfer to the Brown&Co Client Account, the details of which will be provided by the auctioneer to the successful bidder shortly after the auction ends. Other fees may be payable on completion and will be detailed within the Special Conditions of Sale to be found within the published Auction Pack.
Ability to Buy: This property is being sold under Unconditional Auction Rules creating a legally binding contract at the conclusion of the timed auction. DO NOT bid unless you can complete the sale within 28 days, or on the terms specified within the Special Conditions of Sale.
Help and Assistance: If you have any questions or require any clarification as to the online auction process please contact the auctioneer prior to commencement of the bidding window as we will be unable to enter into any discussions once the auction has started.
Bidding Process: Prior to bidding the bidder will complete a Passport-to-Bid process, which requires registration, verification and agreement to Buyers Terms.
How To Follow the Auction: Use 'Watch' button to follow the auction. If you register to Watch an auction you will receive email notifications of any bidding activity on the specific lot.
How It Works: Unconditional Timed Auction Online: This is a binding method of sale similar to a traditional public property auction. The only difference is the bidding takes place online. The successful purchaser will be required to pay a 10% deposit (subject to a minimum payment of £5,000) on the fall of the virtual gavel and contracts will be exchanged. Bidding for properties online works in a similar fashion to eBay. You can place bids using your PC, tablet or mobile phone and the minimum amount you can bid is defined by the 'bid increment' level. When you place a bid, the property listing page will show you if your bid was successful and whether or not you are the highest bidder. When you are the highest bidder on a property, if another bidder outbids you the system will notify you by email so that you can place another bid if you wish. The major difference from eBay is that our system eradicates sudden death 'bid sniping' through the use of auction 'extension times'. If you have any questions or require any clarification please contact the auctioneer.
