There’s a great selection of properties in desirable locations at Romans’ second auction of the year, including a public house set in 1.25 acres close to Marlow and High Wycombe. The auction is taking place on Wednesday 23rd March at 1.30pm at the Green Park Conference Centre in Reading.

The Peacock, Bolter End

“Last month’s auction highlighted how popular property auctions are becoming, with hundreds of people in attendance and 86% of the lots selling” comments Simon Clayton, Romans’ Auctions Director.

“It is one of the fastest ways to buy a property and you can find some real gems at affordable prices, plus the contracts exchange at the fall of the gavel so there are no unnecessary delays.”

In Romans’ March auction there is an opportunity to completely change your lifestyle by purchasing The Peacock, a public house in Bolter End. The detached freehold public house is situated on a plot of approximately 1.25 acres in a picturesque Chilterns location and provides great potential for investment with a guide price of £390,000 – a real life changer!

Alternatively, you could build your own family home with several lots offering fantastic potential for building projects, including a bungalow on Barkham Road in Wokingham which comes with planning permission for a replacement five bedroom house and a guide price of £550,000.

“This is a great opportunity for an investor or a family looking for a project and keen to put their own mark on a property by building it themselves” comments Simon. “It is in a fantastic location and is sure to drum up a lot of interest.”

Woods Road, Caversham

A detached house on Woods Road in Caversham with a guide price of £385,000 also comes with planning permission for the demolition of the existing dwelling and the building of a five bedroom detached house and garage.

There is also a rare opportunity to purchase a three bedroom detached house with a large rear garden on Henley Road in Caversham with a guide price of £400,000. Within walking distance of the village centre, this period property does require modernisation but would make an ideal family home.

Several properties are ready to move into straight away, including a recently renovated four bedroom semi-detached house on Peabody Road in Farnborough with a guide price of £350,000, a three bedroom detached house on Downsland Road in Basingstoke which requires modernisation and has a guide price of £260,000, and a quaint cottage on Church Lane in Three Mile Cross with a guide of £320,000 which also requires modernisation and offers great potential for extension.
