Ghouls and ghosts won’t put off bargain hunters!


For those unperturbed by ghouls and ghosts and things that go bump in the night, there’s a chance to bag a bargain at Nottingham-based heb chartered surveyors’ next auction.

The property agents and auctioneers are offering a former cemetery keeper’s lodge which sits within the grounds of Kimberley’s cemetery.

The unique and interesting lot is a Victorian detached house with three bedrooms, two reception rooms and private gardens to the front, rear and side.

The property is known as Broomhill Lodge and is situated just inside the cemetery gates at Kimberely in Nottinghamshire. It has a guide price of £90,000 and is being sold on behalf of Kimberley Town Council.

Auctioneer and partner at heb, Matt Hilton, said: “We are delighted to have been instructed to act on behalf of the Town Council and assist with the sale of this property which is a classic auction lot in view of its unique location.

“The property is extremely well-built being Victorian and sits on an attractive plot with open views over the cemetery towards the chapel and countryside beyond. The property is in need of refurbishment and could make a beautiful family home.

“The property does have an unusual location but I doubt this will put off too many property hunters who are looking for an exceptional bargain with fantastic potential.”

A further interesting feature of this property is the former public conveniences which are attached to the rear of the property and form part of the sale. However, the buyer will be able to convert these areas into their own accommodation as there is no future requirement for these facilities.

The property is to be sold with many further auction lots at the Nottingham Gateway Hotel, Nuthall Road at 2.30 pm on Wednesday 13 February 2013. For more details, contact heb on 0115 9506611.
