Property description

FOR SALE BY PUBLIC AUCTION on Friday 5th April 2019 at 12 midday. Guide Price: 'Offers in excess of £45,000'

A proper renovation project not for the faint-hearted! 1 Coburg Villas offers tremendous scope and potential but requires complete renovation and modernisation throughout. The property is situated in a popular location in the oldest part of the town and is just a few hundred metres from both the sea front and the high street and sits in an elevated position enjoying views over the neighbouring properties towards Capstone, the Bristol Channel and distant Welsh coastline. The property also has views towards the harbour, Lantern Hill and Hillsborough.

The three storey accommodation is in a very poor state of repair with some areas open to the elements and the bay windows in a state of dilapidation and in need of rebuilding. There is no staircase to the first with access being required by ladder only and some of the floor areas being held up on acrow props. There are several areas of rot and dampness with the property likely to require a complete strip out and re-fit. As a result of the works required we can almost certainly say that the property is not suitable for mortgage lending purposes.

The house is on the market for the first time in nearly 40 years. The ground floor currently comprises a lounge, dining area and kitchen, the first floor with a bedroom/living room, a further bedroom and a bathroom with 2 more bedrooms on the top floor. In addition there is also a 'garret room' at the top of the building which provides a 'look out' which enjoys the open vista. The layout could easily be varied during a rebuild to suit the new buyers needs.

The property is accessed via steps which lead up from Fore Street and which also leads to the neighbouring adjoining property. There is a front garden area in a very natural state and at the rear there is an enclosed court yard garden. All mains services are connected to the property.

The bustling sea front is just a short stroll away and the property is very close to some of the town's best restaurants including the Michelin starred 'Thomas Carr @ The Olive Room'. The picturesque harbour is a just a few hundred metres away and the pier is also close by and home to world renowned artist Damien Hirst's 'Verity' statue. There is an excellent choice of bars, cafes and other eateries to suit all budgets and tastes and there are beaches at Wildersmouth and the famous 'Tunnels' which are again all within a short walk. The high street has further amenities and there are schools for all ages, a health centre and hospital as well as Tesco, Lidl and Co-Op supermarkets. The town also has a Theatre and Cinema.

Internal viewings are NOT possible due to the unsafe nature of the property. We have an interactive walkthrough tour of the house available to view at . There are also an array of detailed photos taken throughout the property which are available upon request.

For further information please do contact our offices.

The property is to be sold 'as seen' and there are still a number of chattels remaining in the property. We are unsure of the exact nature of these chattels but understand that there is nothing hazardous left in-situ although have not carried out any detailed checks. The property however does have considerable amounts of pigeon excrement throughout. Webbers Estate Agents cannot accept any liability for any items left at the property.

We understand that there is possibly Japanese Knotweed present at the rear of the property. The area identified can be seen on the two photos of the rear of the property above. It can also be seen on the 'walkthrough tour'.
