SVA Property Auctions’ Livestream Auction puts Land and Office Lots Under the Hammer

SVA Property Auctions, Scotland’s independent property auction company, will be hosting its third online auction on Wednesday 2nd June at 2.00pm.

The June auction follows on from the successful response by both vendors and buyers to the previous live-streamed auctions, which saw SVA Property Auctions’ director and auctioneer Shaun Vigers at the rostrum, gavel in hand, knocking down the lots in real time.

Says Vigers, “We have an interesting selection of properties, located across a wide geographical area, which are being offered by both independent clients and our public sector clients with this latter group returning as vendors, following the easing of restrictions on travel. Both vendors and clients are engaging enthusiastically with the online bidding platform and we are committed to continuing to offer this service in tandem with our traditional “ballroom” format once we are able to return to our venues.”

Highlights of the June auction include a substantial parcel of woodland near Helensburgh, not dissimilar to the Kennel Wood lot which generated significant interest in the March auction. The 15.5 acre lot at Glenoran Estate, Rhu, occupies an elevated position overlooking Gare Loch and the Firth of Clyde and was originally the site of a grand house owned by Charles Kidston. Whilst the Kidston family was a well known family in the area, their most famous family member is probably vintage textile designer Cath Kidston.

Little remains of the original house although some of the terraced gardens and ornamental trees have left their mark and blend in with the mix of deciduous and evergreen trees which largely cover the site. The lot is being guided at £30,000 and there maybe a potential opportunity to secure planning permission for the development of a large house on the site.

The lot on Bridge Street in Musselburgh is another highly attractive property, likely to generate  considerable interest. Situated on the south side of Bridge Street opposite the Brunton Theatre, the handsome B listed office premises is currently arranged into three self-contained suites over the ground and lower ground floors. There are separate entrances to both floors and a substantial area of former garden ground can be accessed from both the ground or lower ground floor. If the internal staircase were to be re-instated, the property affords considerable scope to return it to residential use. The lot is being guided at £290,000.

A 0.64 acre land parcel at St Madoes Parish Church in Perthshire’s attractive Carse of Gowrie is coming under the hammer with a guide price of £65,000. The site is well situated, with easy access to village amenities and convenient commuting and the principle of residential development is already established over most of the plot.
