John Amos Rural and Cobb Amos are delighted to report another successful auction at The Luctonians Sports Club, Kingsland on Thursday 17th October.
8 Lots were entered and the sale commenced with fierce bidding for 1.90 acres at Orleton which sold locally at £31,000. Lot 2, a site for 6 houses at Knighton, fell short of the reserve price and is now available by Private Treaty.
Lot 3 was a single building plot in Weobley which had caught the eye of a few local builders and this was sold at the guide price of £70,000. Lot 4, 5.60 acres of pasture land at Welshwood, Whitney on Wye also attracted plenty of interest and eventually sold for £80,000.
Lots 5 and 6 were sold on behalf of a deceased Estate in Kington and both attracted plenty of interest. Spring Cottage, a two bedroom cottage for renovation sold at the guide price of £140,000, whilst 62 Bridge Street a shop with a flat above had tremendous interest and more than doubled the guide price of £30,000 by reaching a sale price of £62,000!
Lot 7 a 3 bedroom modern cottage with an agricultural restriction was withdrawn just below the guide price of £225,000 and is now available by Private Treaty.

After the Sale, Auctioneer John Amos said ‘We have had a great year for auction sales. There has been more interest all year and this has been reflected in packed auction rooms and plenty of bidders. This year we have seen 47 Lots so far through the auctions and sold over £5.8 million worth of Land and Property across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire and Powys.’
