An eclectic mix of land and property in north Kent and south London has been sold at auction - including the former hair salon Mario Edmund in Gravesend.

The lot was among 133 listed for sale by Clive Emson, the land and property auctioneers.

The 64 Windmill Street premises, which has five storeys, a back garden and parking at the front, might have development potential as long as all necessary consents are obtainable - this was one reason why it went for £317,000 against a guide price of £230-240,000.

Ben Snelling, auctioneer, said: “This is located within the regeneration town centre of Gravesend and is a good size commercial building.”

Another Gravesend lot was 147 Parrock Street, a town centre shop with upper parts and a freehold guide price of £135-145,000 that sold for £212,000.

A plot of land in Swanley measures 1.15 acres, which may have development potential as long as all necessary consents are obtainable.

Astonishingly, it sold for £360,000 - way above the guide price of £50-60,000.

In Dartford, at 31 Blackmans Close, is a two bedroom maisonette with a freehold guide price of £165,000-plus which sold for £184,000.

Another Gravesend property was 91 Lamorna Road, a three bedroom, mid-terrace house for improvement with a freehold guide price of £195-205,000 that went for £252,000.

A further Dartford lot was 92 Berkeley Crescent, a mid-terrace, three bedroom house with a freehold guide price of £265-275,000 that sold for £288,000.

Clive Emson Auctioneers enjoyed a record-breaking 2017 after cataloguing 1,168 lots and achieving sales of £160 million at a success rate of 80 per cent.

Following this sale, the outlook is extremely positive for 2018, according to managing director James Emson.

The next sale will be held on Tuesday, March 20, at the Clive Emson Conference Centre, Kent County Showground, Detling, starting at 11am.
