Sat back on a generous garden plot behind mature stone walled gardens at one of the highest points of West Lancs with gorgeous hard-to-beat open views to the rear we are delighted to offer for sale Melling Farm house via the modern method of auction.

The property has undergone extensive renovation and structural work with our client spending in excess of £130,000 in recent years taking down and rebuilding the rear gable wall to a new two storey design, building a brand new single storey extension to the side that features a chimney breast and beautiful vaulted ceilings, underpinning and rebuilding a large section of the front of the house, repointing and dressing all the exterior stone, diverting an old drain/covert from underneath the house and installing a new roof on the whole of the property property. All plumbing and electrics have been removed and the floors have been dug out in preparation for underfloor heating to be installed. We are therefore offering the property for sale as seen (essentially a shell) with no internal fittings which in our opinion gives a buyer a unique opportunity to purchase a home of true distinction in one of Wigan's / West Lancs most sought after areas that has a blank canvas and can be renovated to a buyers own specification.

The gardens extend to front, side and rear with ample off road parking and hardstanding at the side for a large shed or garage (subject to necessary planning approval) The sale will also include several thousands pounds worth of stone at the property which can be used for any additional building / landscaping.

Please note that the floor plan provided by Regan & Hallworth is the proposed design of the house and for illustration purposes.

This property is for sale by the Modern Method of Auction which is not to be confused with traditional auction. The Modern Method of Auction is a flexible buyer friendly method of purchase. We do not require the buyer to exchange contracts immediately; however, from the date the draft contract for sale is received by the Buyer's solicitor, the buyer has 56 DAYS in which to complete the transaction; whilst using every endeavour to exchange contracts within the first 28 days. Allowing the additional time to exchange contracts means interested parties can proceed with traditional residential finance. Upon close of a successful auction, or if the vendor accepts an offer during the auction, the buyer will be required to make payment of a non-refundable Reservation Fee of 4.2% of the final agreed sale price including VAT - this is subject to a minimum of £6,000.00 including VAT - which reserves the property from sale by securing the transaction and takes the property off the market. The Reservation Fee is paid in addition to the final negotiated selling price. A non-refundable Buyer Information Pack fee of £200.00 including VAT is payable towards the preparation cost of the pack, if the Buyer Information Pack has been produced and provided by IAM Sold. The Documents in the pack can then be used by your solicitor during the conveyancing stage of the purchase. It is recommended that you view the Buyer Information Pack before agreeing to your purchase. Fees paid to the Auctioneer may be considered as part of the chargeable consideration for the property and be included in the calculation for stamp duty liability. Further clarification for this must be sought from your legal representative. The buyer will be required to sign a Reservation Agreement to confirm acceptance of the terms prior to solicitors being instructed. A sample copy of the Reservation Agreement and all terms and conditions can be found in the Buyer Information Pack, which can be downloaded from the auction section of our website, or requested from our Auction Department. Please note this property is subject to an undisclosed reserve price which is generally no more than 10% in excess of the starting bid, both the starting bid and reserve price can be subject to change. Terms and conditions apply to the Modern Method of Auction, which is operated by the North West Property Auction powered by IAM Sold.
