A 'SUBSTANTIAL' eight-bedroomed house in New Brighton is among 27 Wirral properties set to go under the hammer at auction next month.

The double-fronted property on Nelson Street - featured in Smith and Sons' online auction taking place on July 10 - is described as 'in need of a full refurbishment programme and is ripe for conversion into a wonderful family home, apartments or HMO'.

Up for auction are investment and development opportunities for anyone looking to add to existing portfolios or those keen to refurbish and sell on.

A number of terraced properties in Birkenhead with guides starting as low as £35,000 are sure to attract attention.

For developers, there is a rare opportunity to secure three adjoining properties in historic Hamilton Square. Planning permission was granted in October 2019 for change of use to an Apart Hotel or there is space to create a series of apartments and/or commercial space.

Chris Johnson, Auctioneer at Smith and Sons commented: “This is a strong auction due to the range of properties available – there really is something for everyone. Those looking to strengthen their portfolio will be encouraged by the number of rentable properties available, whilst there’s some great semi-detached and terraced properties that would make perfect family homes.

“Viewings are now underway and we look forward to welcoming interested parties prior to auction in July.”
