December Auction Highlights

Posted by Clive Emson Auctioneers on 13th December 2021 -


As 2021 draws to a chilly close, we’re hoping to heat things up with our dazzling December auction. 

This month, we have a wide range of properties up for auction, from former public elevators (yes, you heard us correctly) to charismatic period properties with potential. 

So buckle up and get ready for the final auction highlights of the year!

Please note: bidding for all of the properties you are about to see begins on Monday the 13th of December, with the auction ending from 11 am on Wednesday 15th. 

A Double-Fronted Dream in St Ives 

Lot 9 has a lot to offer.  Not only is this double-fronted dream of a property located in the highly sought-after St Ives, but its interiors are desirable too. 

Complete with a modern, open-plan kitchen with an island, alongside wooden interior detailing, this bay-fronted beauty is a real gem. While, admittedly, the front needs a spot of work,  the location is immense. This property is just a stone’s throw from the town centre and only a short walk from Cornwall’s stunning coastline. 

Guided at £375,000 Plus, with three ground-floor retail/artist studio rooms and a self-contained flat, this property brings a unique touch of the cosmopolitan to the Cornish market. If you’re interested in this lot, Call Dave Henwood or Tom Lowe on 01392 366555 today. 

A Former Public Elevator?!

What used to be the Western Undercliff lift can now be yours with a guide price of just £20,000. This unusual piece of freehold real estate truly is unlike any other, consisting of the main elevator shaft complete with coloured glass. 

The lift itself has not been used by the public in many years and has become somewhat of a coastal relic as a Grade II listed feature. Made by Sir John Burnet and Partners in 1926, this lift has unbeatable charm and will, quite literally, take any property buyer’s repertoire to new heights. 

If you’re interested in this lift, call Kevin Gilbert on 01622 608400 or view the site here

A Famous Farmhouse and Outbuildings 

Up next, we have a rustic and rural farmhouse and its accompanying outbuildings. You can find this authentic property nestled deep in Redruth, Cornwall. 

Matching its name, Mount Pleasant Farm, this property certainly is pleasant. With a guide price of £300,000 – £350,000, the Lot consists of the charming farm building itself together with the surrounding 2.69 acres of land.

You won’t want to miss out on this property since the last time it was on the market was over half a century ago. Steeped in rural village history and the childhood home of famous mountaineer Norman Croucher, this property has been referenced in art and literature numerous times. 

Call Dave Henwood or Tom Lowe on 01392 36655 today and look out for Lot 113 this December!

A Blend of the City and Farm Life

Farmlife isn’t for everyone, but this particular property offers the best of both worlds as a detached barn that is in a prime position for conversion into a residential property.

Located just off the A21 between Lamberhurst and Flimwell, this spacious and secluded dwelling offers the perfect opportunity for someone looking for a chance to live a slice of country life. Once successfully converted, the barn will offer a three bedroom dwelling for owner occupation or to rent out.

The guide price for the barn is £260,000. For more information head on over to the dedicated property’s lot page. 

Be the King of the Car Park

For anyone that drives, you’ll know how much of a hassle car parking can be. Well with this particular property, parking will be a problem of the past with this lot offering a total of 52 car parking spaces!

The lot, located in Farnborough, Hampshire,  is composed of 10 lock-up garages, 8 of which also come with their own car parking bay, as well as a separate car park comprising 44 car parking bays. While there’s nothing stopping a buyer to use a spot or two for themselves, any prominent investor can see the fantastic opportunity available to own the property for rental purposes to drivers in and around the local area.

The lot has a guide price of £250,000. For more information, be sure to check out the lot over on our property page.
