Dedicated to DIY? Blank canvas properties with potential for greatness

If your new year’s resolution involves knocking down walls, stripping off wallpaper or re-decorating Sarah Beeny style, then an auction property purchase could be for you.

Although it is true to say that certain auctioneers tend to offer the same old property type time and time again, others provide considerably more variety and tend to include property lots that are far more interesting. 

With lashings of time, a strong vision and a keen eye for design, those with dedication to DIY can capitalise on auction opportunities and snap up unique properties that have huge potential.

Held on Monday 30th January at Kensington Town Hall, Countrywide’s next London based property auction will include a huge variety of property types from across the UK.  When the hammer falls 3 lucky auction goers will have the opportunity to renovate these far from ordinary homes:

With 13 bedrooms this substantial home is huge and has maximum potential for development. In the centre of Dover the property’s unusual design has maximum kerb appeal and could be converted into a highly desirable luxury home. Guide price £375,000.


This 3 bedroom Grade II Listed former granary has an attractive exterior and is set in pretty gounds.  At a guide price of £225,000 this property offers history and period features that could be restored to greatness.

There is no doubt that this flat fronted period detached property has a unique charm. Situated in a semi-rural location on the outskirts of St Austell it has 3 bedrooms, seperate lounge and dining room, oil fired heating, a large garden and lots of off road parking.  All for a guide price of just £140,000
