Interest builds in 38 Fornham Road, Bury St Edmunds, a dilapidated town house going under auction for nearly £200,000 next week
Interest is building in a dilapidated house, on the market for nearly £200,000, just outside of a Suffolk town’s centre before it goes under the hammer next week.
The property at 38 Fornham Road, in Bury St Edmunds, is in need of a substantial facelift, with much of the interior in disrepair.
Auction House East Anglia, which is taking the property to auction, said there has been a lot of interest in the property.
The auction will take place through a livestream next Wednesday (November 1), starting at around 11am.
A spokesperson said that, whilst no official bids have been received, they are expecting a good number of buyers to register to bid.
The property requires extensive refurbishment works and cleaning of the interior and garden is necessary.
The house has three bedrooms, and counts a Tesco superstore and the town’s train station as nearby amenities.
It is also within walking distance of the town centre, as well as high schools County Upper, St Benedict’s and King Edward’s.
Pubs in the near vicinity of the house include The Linden Tree, The Beerhouse and The Tollgate.
The most recent sale on the road was for a five-bed dwelling in the same terrace, which went for £455,000 just over a year ago.
The house is in council tax band B.
