Amongst the residential lots is a substantial Victorian town house in a popular Cambridge city location with flexible accommodation over four floors.  The property is currently used as a licensed HMO and is in need of sympathetic improvement and updating (Lot 11 - guide price £600,000-£650,000). It presents an ideal opportunity for converting back into a family home, or as a buy-to-let investment, with a current annual income of almost £50,000. There is also the opportunity to purchase a pair of attached buildings in the village of Lode which is being sold as a single lot (Lot 12 - guide £450,000+). One is an existing residential dwelling whilst the other, known as The Guildhall, has previously been used as a commercial space. It has been granted planning permission for change of use to residential, offering buyers a unique opportunity to acquire and tailor the property to their needs.

Commercial lots in central Cambridge are always hard to come by, but the catalogue features two such opportunities.  The first is a single storey building in the heart of Cambridge which was once used as a post office and may now be suitable for a variety of uses, subject to planning (Lot 2, guide price £125,000-£150,000). The second is a substantial premises for sale on Mill Road (Lot 3, guide price £225,000-£235,000) which was damaged by a fire in 2019; the building is in need of substantial refurbishment but gives buyers a rare chance to acquire such a building in this thriving part of the city.  Elsewhere, there is also an opportunity to purchase a leasehold investment in a retail unit in Soham, Ely (Lot 8), currently producing a good rent as a ladies’ fashion boutique.

Ian Kitson, Director at Cheffins, comments: “As ever, we have a wide range of lots at our upcoming auction, with opportunities for both investors and owner occupiers.  Central Cambridge lots are always rare, and we are therefore excited to offer four such opportunities in this catalogue, which we hope will excite potential buyers.  These sit within a catalogue that contains a variety of lots, spread across a wide geographical area, and therefore should offer something for most buyers.”

The property auction will take place at 2pm at Clifton House, 1-2 Clifton Road, Cambridge, on 6th March, with bidding available in the room and online.
