Former gentleman’s residence is just what the doctor ordered

A detached house in Derby in SDL Auctions Graham Penny’s next auction at Pride Park Stadium is just what the doctor ordered.

The large three storey period property at 6 Leopold Street in Derby is described by Robert Stone, senior valuer at SDL Auctions Graham Penny, as a unique and rare opportunity to bid for a particularly striking former gentleman’s residence.

“This outstanding property was recently known as a doctor’s surgery but it now offers huge potential.

“The property has an attractive appearance and internally requires considerable attention and repair,” he said.

“However, it is clear that the property has distinct potential for a wide variety of uses, both commercial and residential, subject to the necessary planning permission.

“You could say you can write our own prescription for this former doctor’s surgery!” he said.

Options might include conversion to apartments, a hotel, bed and breakfast or as offices.

Next to the property is sizable car park which could accommodate up to 14 vehicles and includes three substantial garages.

Robert Stone said: “We believe the extensive parking area could be separated to provide a potential building plot, subject to planning permission.

“Overall, this is a very appealing property, occupying an established residential location and surrounded by similar styled properties.

“Location-wise, it is within yards of the Intu Shopping Centre and the inner ring which provides swift access into the city centre and further road connections.

“This auction lot offers a discerning purchaser the chance to acquire an outstanding property with huge potential at a very sensible and attractive guide price.”

The lot has a *guide price of £250,000+ and SDL Auctions Graham Penny’s next Derby Auction starts at 11.30am at Pride Park Stadium on Wednesday 11 April. Further details can be found here.


* Each property is subject to a Reserve Price which may be different from the Guide Price. For full definitions click here.
