Feather Smailes Scales kicks off their 2014 Property Auction on Thursday, 6th March 2014.

“Our first auction of the year really does have something for everyone”, says Richard Smailes, who will be conducting the auction.  “There are several standout Lots, which present the buyer with the opportunity to create something new, either for themselves or for other users.”

Of interest to the first time buyer or rental investor is a one bedroom ground floor flat on Park View, Harrogate.  The flat is in need of modernisation but gives the incoming owner the opportunity to put their own stamp on the property.  According to Richard Smailes, “We are expecting a lot of interest in this property, especially at its guide price of £80,000.”

Also sure to appeal to the buy to let market or owner occupier is a traditional brick built two bedroom mid-terrace house with large purpose built workshop to the rear, located on Aismunderby Road,  Ripon, and is being offered at a guide price of £90,000.

Another property expected to be popular is a substantial semi-detached house in Starbeck.  This property occupies an enviable position on the High Street, near to Starbeck Station, which is ideal for commuting.  The property extends to over 2,000 sq ft and comes with a large garden and separate garage.  While it is in need of comprehensive refurbishment it presents the buyer with the perfect opportunity to create a wonderful family home close to all amenities and is being offered at a guide price of £250,000.

For the more enterprising buyer, the Old Library at 1/18 Skellgarth and Water Skellgate, Ripon is bound to appeal.  This is a rare opportunity to acquire a development site, close to the centre of Ripon, with planning approval at a guide price of £250,000.

In addition to these properties the auction will also offer three commercial properties ideal for the owner occupier or rental investor; including a vacant self-contained office building located at Hornbeam Square South, a 785 sq ft industrial unit with office at the popular Nidd Valley Business Park and at Falsgrave Road, Scarborough, a vacant ground floor retail unit together with vacant three bedroom residential accommodation on the upper floors.

Completing the auction are two separate parcel’s of pasture land at Bank Top, Bishop Thornton and Kirkby Lane, Kearby.  Both measure just over 8 acres and are guided at £70,000 each.

“We sold several parcels of agricultural land at our auctions last year”, says Richard Smailes.  “They generated considerable interest from buyers as well as achieving excellent results.”

So if you’re looking for a new start to the New Year then Feather Smailes Scales auction could have just what you’re looking for.
