Land & property auctions

An impressive Victorian Gothic property which was once the home of a prolific figure in the world of shipping is going under the hammer with our County Property Auction.

Rockcliffe House, 466, Beverley Road, Hull is one of a number of lots for sale tomorrow, 28th February.

The property, most recently used as a care home, is for sale with full planning permission for conversion into eight apartments.

Rockcliffe House is coming under the auction hammer with our County Property Auction team in Lincoln.

Rockliffe House was built in 1864 and converted for use by the Hull and East Riding Institute for the Blind in 1920 after being bequeathed to the organisation and was later run as a care home by a family firm dating to 1946.

A grand house with intricate brickwork, Gothic arched windows and substantial chimneys also has some original features inside including a tiled hallway floor, winding staircase and sash windows.

It was once the home of Edward Leetham (1837-1918) who was a shipowner and well known figure in the Humber shipping world who had retired at the end of the 1800s.

Rockliffe House.

The property is now for sale offering around 6,415 sqft with full planning permission and listed building consent for conversion into apartments. 

Rockcliffe House is one of 16 lots going under the hammer at the livestream auction on 28th February, starting at 3pm.

It comes after the success of our recent online auctions held by the Norfolk team earlier this month, both on 7th and 21st February with another planned for 21st March.
