Derelict Upwell cottages up for sale
Three derelict properties in a Fenland village have gone up for auction.
The derelict cottages, two of which collapsed some 40 years ago, at 29 Dovecote Road in Upwell will be up for auction in May.
Guided freehold at £125,000-130,000, they are among 135 lots listed across southern England by regional land and property auctioneers Clive Emson.
Russell Hawkes, a senior auction appraiser with Clive Emson, said: “There were three cottages, of which only one still remains, on a 0.22-acre site.
"We are advised by the seller that the other two collapsed approximately 40 years ago.
“The cottage is situated approximately 6.5 miles south of Wisbech, and according to the local authority is shown on Ordnance Survey maps dating back to the 1880s.
“There are good surrounding road networks, including the A47 and A10.
“The remaining cottage is in poor condition and would make an ideal renovation project with potential to perhaps reinstate three dwellings or create one larger property, subject to all necessary consents and accesses being obtainable.”
Bidding will be live from Monday, May 3, with the auction ending on Wednesday, May 5.
