Period house project in sought-after waterside location
Investors with vision have the opportunity to pick up a period country house in an exclusive rural Nottinghamshire location in SDL Auctions’ next national property auction.
Sitting on the edge of the National Water Sports Centre in Holme Pierrepont, the Grade II listed Holly Lodge in Holme Lane will go under the hammer on Wednesday 30th September with a *guide price of £250,000+.
SDL Auctions’ Nottingham valuer Laura Wiles said bidders are likely to see past its current condition and appreciate its potential.
“There is so much more to this property than initially meets the eye. Clearly it requires emptying and full renovation to expose its full character, but it holds so much possibility. Once completed this will be a stunning family home in a beautiful location and we believe it will appeal both to investors looking for their next project and to private buyers looking for their forever home.”
The property is thought to have been built in the early 19th century as a gate lodge to Holme Pierrepont Hall for the Manvers family. It retains gothic-style windows, feature fireplaces and exposed ceiling beams and sits in secluded grounds, set back from a quiet country road.
The ground floor of the property comprises an entrance hall, breakfast kitchen with pantry and separate utility room, three reception rooms and a shower room. Upstairs are three double bedrooms plus a potential nursery/store room and a family bathroom.
There is also a large attached single-storey barn with a high ceiling, which opens into the gardens on one side and a cobbled courtyard with private seating area on the other.
The property is approached via a shared private drive leading to Old Rectory Nurseries, and a private gravel driveway leading to a substantial parking area and double garage with lighting and power, and a door leading to the kitchen entrance.
The garden is south-facing and sheltered, surrounded by established hedges and mature trees and mostly laid to lawn.
Laura added: “The property sits on a sizeable plot and the kitchen and double garage are within a flat-roofed extension, providing great potential for development, subject to the necessary planning permissions. This potential, combined with the style of the property and its enviable location, make this property a highly desirable refurbishment project.”
Surrounded by fields and the landscaping and lakes of Holme Pierrepont Country Park and National Water Sports Centre, the hamlet of Holme Pierrepont is one of Nottinghamshire’s most sought-after locations. As well as the historic hall, it has a church and the Skylarks Nature Reserve, owned by Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust. It sits between West Bridgford and Radcliffe-on-Trent, both of which have a wealth of amenities, and is well located for road and rail links and Nottingham city centre.
Holly Lodge is among a huge variety of properties being sold by SDL Auctions, the UK’s most successful live-streamed auctioneer†, in its national property auction on Wednesday 30th September with bidding by telephone, over the internet or by proxy.
