Could you pick up the perfect staycation home at auction?

A staycation boom has boosted demand for properties in holiday locations, so auctioneers are expecting a great deal of interest in two lots going under the hammer this month.

Whether you prefer to holiday near the hills or sojourn by the sea, SDL Auctions has a property which will give you years of staycations in some of the UK’s most popular locations.

A traditional stone cottage within a stone’s throw of the Lake District is just one of more than 150 homes already added to SDL Auctions’ website ahead of its two-day national property auction on 29th and 30th October.

10 Spring Gardens in Low Fellside, Kendal is a mid-terraced property just minutes from the town centre, and parks.

Well presented throughout and ready to move into, the cottage features a modern kitchen, sitting room with a woodburner in a feature fireplace, three bedrooms and a family bathroom. Outside is a well-maintained front garden with an elevated patio garden, yard and storage at the rear. There is residents’ parking.

Head of Auctions North West Andy Thompson said: “This is a great buy which ticks lots of boxes. It’s in the popular town of Kendal, with all its shops and amenities, but only a short distance from the beautiful Lake District National Park. It would be ideal for a number of uses, including a lovely family home, a weekend retreat or a holiday let.”

The property is being sold in partnership with Herdman Homes with a *guide price of £165,000+.

If you prefer coastline to mountains, then you’ll find a seaside retreat on the opposite side of the country in Scarborough.

Flat 2 in Castle Cliff Court, 20 Blenheim Terrace in Queens Parade is a spacious and well presented leasehold apartment on the lower ground floor and featuring a hallway, lounge, modern fitted kitchen, two bedrooms and smart bathroom with a white suite.

Andy said: “This is a fantastic apartment which, again, would make a great home, bolthole or holiday let. It’s in a fantastically central location, close to both bays and with stunning coastal and castle views.”

The apartment has an attractive guide price of £50,000+.

Both properties are due to be sold by SDL Auctions, the UK’s most successful live-streamed auctioneer, on the first day of its two-day national property auction on 29th October.

This year SDL Auctions has sold more than 1,000 properties and raised more than £130 million for sellers and its September national property auction was its biggest yet, featuring 240 lots.
