Semi-detached house fitted with lift to star in Manchester auction

Cheetham Hill Road SDL Auctions North West

A fascinating house in Manchester with a fully installed lift is for sale in SDL Auctions North West’s first auction of 2018.

The three bedroomed, semi-detached house at 305 Cheetham Hill Road has a *guide price of £115,000+ and is one of 54 lots in the catalogue for the auction in Manchester on 28 February.

Andy Thompson, senior valuer at SDL Auctions North West, said: “This is a large previously four bedroomed house located in a convenient position close to Manchester city centre.

“It is understood that the unusual feature of a lift from the lounge, providing access to the master bedroom, was installed for the previous owner who was disabled. This bedroom leads onto a dressing room area and wet room, formerly the fourth bedroom.”

Another unusual lot at the auction is a plot of land between two shops adjacent to 8 Vale View, in Bowdon, near Altrincham, with a guide price of £5,000+.

Mr Thompson said: “This freehold parcel of land is accessed off Vicarage Lane within the desirable village location of Bowdon, where land can be very expensive.

“A site measurement has not been provided and so the land will be sold with reference to the land registry title plan found within the legal pack. Any proposed use enquiries should be directed to Trafford Council Planning Control.”

Other lots filling the pages of the auction catalogue include a selection of flats and houses across the north west, with guide prices ranging £10,000+ to £150,000+.

Also going under the hammer is a two bedroomed, mid-terraced house at 28 Briscoe Lane in Newton Heath, currently rented out for £520 per calendar month, or £6,240 per annum. This has a guide price of £63,000+.

Mr Thompson said: “This is an excellent investment opportunity and could result in a yield of nearly 10 per cent if sold at the guide price.

“We’ve got a great range of properties to suit the needs of all buyers, and we’re expecting a busy evening in the auction room.”

The SDL Auctions North West auction takes place at the AJ Bell Stadium in Manchester on Wednesday 28 February. The full catalogue can be viewed here and is combined with the lots from the SDL Auctions Cheshire & North Wales auction the day before at Chester Racecourse.
