A PERIOD home and several buildings with potential appeal to developers are among 25 Wirral properties set to go under the hammer at auction next month.
Smith and Sons' online auction will take place on December 6.
It features terraced properties guided at low starting points which may be of interest 'for those looking to kick start or strengthen a buy-to-let portfolio'.
Among them is a substantial detached period property on Lowwood Road in Birkenhead, which comprises a three bedroomed house with separate and self-contained two bedroomed flat at lower ground level, guided at £230,000 – £250,000.
A four bedroomed detached house on River Grove in New Ferry is an ideal refurbishment project offering potential to upgrade to a purchaser’s own requirements following which it will be ideal for owner occupation, onward sale or investment.
A three-storey property in Claughton Village with planning for two houses comprises a convenience store with two vacant upper floors, each suitable for conversion to residential.
On Liscard Road in Wallasey, there is a large corner property comprised of a ground floor double fronted retail unit with a self-contained four bedroomed maisonette above having its own access from Rivington Road and being offered with vacant possession.
Land at Parkgate is described by Smith & Sons as having 'appeal to the self-builder or developer', while a substantial vacant former bar and club in New Ferry, set in a quiet residential cul-de-sac, would be 'ideal for community and leisure use, children’s' nursery, medical purposes or beauty treatment business'.
Chris Johnson, auctioneer at Smith and Sons said: "This is particularly strong auction that will appeal to investors, builders and developers.
"All of the lots offer considerable scope and potential and we expect to see high levels of interest across the board.
"Viewings are underway and anyone wishing to view should get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.”
