A HOUSE, in the same family since before the Second World War, has been sold at auction.

The detached house at 127 Park Road, Chandler's Ford had been in the same family since it was built in the 1930s.

Auctioneers claimed there was 'keen interest' for the home that eventually sold for £550,000.

The property went under the hammer on Wednesday, September 23, as one of 137 lots being sold online by regional land and property auctioneers, Clive Emson.

Rob Marchant, Clive Emson’s Hampshire auctioneer, said: "This attractive detached house had remained in the same family ownership since it was built and occupies a generous 0.23-acre corner plot in a highly sought-after residential location.

"The house requires some upgrading and is considered very worthy of the improvements required.

“Alternatively, the site could potentially be suited to either part or full redevelopment, with a new dwelling/s constructed in addition to the existing house or perhaps demolition of the existing house and full site redevelopment, subject to all the necessary consents being obtainable."

Other sales included land at the rear of West Street in Ringwood which had been guided freehold at £220-240,000 and sold prior to the auction.

A parcel of “overgrown” land on a residential development behind Knatchbull Close and Bridge Road, Romsey, also sold prior to auction with a guide price of £1,000-plus.

A six bedroom home of multiple occupancy also sold at Forton Road, Gosport for £225,000.

Clive Emson's next digital auction is ending on Wednesday November 4.
