Property News: "The Old Church Lords It As Chapel Cottage"


Brighton-based full service auction team, Austin Gray, return to Hove Town Hall on 20th of November with a new selection of lots from all over Sussex. Starting at 1pm, the auction will include this unique property dating predominantly from the Victorian period, which has
been substantially extended over the years. The property used to be a place of worship as a chapel, from where it gets its name.

The property in Burgess Hill, West Sussex, is very near to Wivelsfield mainland railway station with regular trains to Gatwick and London Victoria and is one of 20 lots in this, the best auction that Austin Gray has ever put together, with a guide price value in excess of £6million.

Internally, the property is dated and would benefit from a programme of refurbishment and re-configuration of the rooms. Alternatively the single storey extension could be turned into a two-storey building to create a substantial family home. In addition the rear garden is potentially large enough to accommodate another property. The asking price for the property at the auction will be £325,000-£350,000. Adding more value to the property is the block-paved driveway which provides parking for numerous cars, plus a detached double garage. The large garden houses a glazed covered swimming pool, and brick-built building with shower and toilet facilities that could be used for an office or changing rooms.

Nick Muston, Head of Austin Gray Auctions said, “This is just one property with bags of potential amongst a whole host of interesting and varied lots that we have assembled for our latest auction.”
