A Mid Wales lake and an historic Montgomeryshire manor house snapped up at Morris Marshall and Poole property auction.
It’s not often you have the chance to buy a Welsh lake or even an historic Mid Wales manor house. But that’s what happened at Morris, Marshall and Poole’s summer auction.
Carregdio Lake, sitting within 2.87 acres of spectacular Montgomeryshire countryside, close to Llangurig, near Llanidloes, was auctioned for £31,000. With a guide price of £15,000, the interest in this rural location, surrounded by woodland, demonstrated the interest out there for unique rural locations.
The lake was one of several properties in Powys, Ceredigion and Gwynedd being auctioned which ranged from flats and apartments in Barmouth and Abedyfi, to town centre homes and land in the combined auction.
But it was Maenol, a manor house on the edge of Llanidloes that attracted significant interest. The Grade II listed building, associated outbuildings, including a summer house and land, was auctioned to a local family for £410,000.
Paul Jervis from Llanidloes said he planned to restore the property as a family home. “I’ve bought it as a family home for generations to come. I’m looking forward to restoring it to its original condition.”
The property, which was built around 1832 by Thomas Evans, a Superintendant Surgeon in the East India Company with links to Kew Gardens in London and was once the High Sheriff of Montgomeryshire, had a guide price of £350,000.
Other properties sold included:
- A first floor one bedroom apartment in Aberystwyth for £45,000
- A three-bedroom apartment in Barmouth for £90,000
- A detached bungalow in Newtown for £136,000
The auction was held at Welshpool Livestock Sales facility at Welshpool. Morris Marshall and Poole will be holding another property auction on 25th September 2014 at 2pm. You can find out more details here.
Residential, commercial and agricultural properties and land are expected to be included in the next property auction from throughout Powys, Ceredigion, Gwynedd and Shropshire.
