Smart Liverpool dockside apartment to star in Chester auction

A rare opportunity to purchase a smart Liverpool dockside apartment is going under the hammer in the next SDL Auctions Cheshire and North Wales auction. 

It is one of four Liverpool properties for sale from a total of 78 lots in a bumper catalogue for the auction at Chester Racecourse on Thursday 14 December and the Manchester auction at the AJ Bell Stadium on Tuesday 12 December. 

Apartment 30 is on the 9th floor of Malmaison Apartments, within a contemporary waterside development at Princes Dock, and has a *guide price of £90,000+.

 The one bedroomed apartment has a modern, open-plan kitchen, living and dining area leading to a good-sized, walk-out balcony.

 Edward Feather, senior valuer and auctioneer at SDL Auctions Cheshire and North Wales, said: “This is a great opportunity for either an owner-occupier or an investor to purchase a well-located city centre flat, close to an abundance of amenities and facilities.” 

The other Liverpool lots include a three bedroomed, semi-detached house at 15 Henley Avenue, which is close to a number of local amenities and facilities in Litherland and Seaforth, and has a guide price of £80,000+.

Mr Feather said: “This property needs some upgrading but would be an ideal purchase for a local investor or owner occupier because its currently the lowest priced three bedroomed house on the market within a quarter of a mile radius by almost £20,000.”

Meanwhile, another semi-detached house is at 188 St Mary’s Road in Garston, currently split into two self-contained flats on the ground and first floor, and with a guide price of £50,000+. 

Mr Feather said: “This double-fronted property, which has good access into the city centre and is close to shops, schools and leisure facilities, would suit a local landlord looking for strong rental yields.”

There is also a two bedroomed, end-of-terrace house at 10 Ronan Close in Bootle, already producing annual rental income of £5,400, with a guide price of £40,000 to £45,000. 

The SDL Auctions Cheshire and North Wales auction is at Chester Racecourse on Thursday 14 December. The combined catalogue of 78 lots can be found here, and at www.sdlauctions.co.uk.
