A Grade II listed period property close to Belper town centre is to be featured in SDL Auctions Graham Penny’s Derby auction on Friday 14 December at Pride Park Stadium.
It is located next to the Babington Hospital site, which is to be sold, and opposite the Strutts Centre, the former Herbert Strutt School, on the main A6 arterial road. It provides access to Matlock, Chatsworth House and has the city of Derby some eight miles to the South.
“This stone-built house at 10 Derby roadin Belper has two double bedrooms and offers something a bit different. It needs improving and modernising but has a lot of potential,” said Robert Stone, Senior Valuer at SDL Auctions Graham Penny.
“The house sits in a mature enclosed garden which wraps around to the side elevation and the property has the potential for an extension, or possibly business use, subject to planning permission.”
SDL Auctions has been instructed by Derbyshire County Council to sell the property in the auction room only and has a guide price of £90,000+.
“The approach to the property is very impressive with lovely old buildings on either side and it is five minutes’ walk from most of the amenities of Belper, a town with a fascinating history,” added Robert Stone.
“For those who enjoy their sport, and perhaps a Saturday afternoon pint, it has a side gate to Belper Rugby Club on Strutts Playing Field next door. It is a property with potential and for those with imagination will offer an interesting investment opportunity.”
