Holiday homes under the hammer

Published

on

imagesA DETACHED bungalow in the sought after rural village of Hundleton is one of 23 lots that will go under the hammer at a property auction later this month. The three-bedroom property, which benefits from a large kitchen diner, an integral garage and generous front and rear gardens is offered with a guide price of £100,000. The bungalow is expected to be of interest to buyers looking for a new home or holiday rental due to its close proximity to Pembroke, Pembrokeshire National Park and a choice of sandy beaches. Also on offer at John Francis’s property auction in The Ivy Bush Hotel, Carmarthen on 28 November is a spacious ground floor flat in Main Street, Pembroke.

The grade II listed building, which offers two-bedrooms with a separate guest bedroom and shower room is an ideal residential, investment or holiday home. With a guide price of £50,000 the current owners achieve an annual income of more than £7,000 for the property. Nigel Jones, director of John Francis, Wales’s largest independent estate agent, said: “These properties offer a flavour of the type of fantastic residential holdings we have on offer later this month. “Both of these properties have the potential to be beautiful homes, or alternatively used as holiday lettings because of their sought after locations. We’re looking forward to seeing how well received they are with prospective househunters later this month.

“We’re also selling a grade II listed former Victorian police house to the prospective buyers at our Carmarthen auction. Located in Fishguard Town, the fivebedroom house has impressive original features including original cell doors, which are certainly an interesting selling point. With a guide price of £110,000 to £130,000, this is an opportunity to purchase a property steeped in history and potential.” The November auctions mark John Francis’ fifth and final auctions of 2014. So far sales from its auctions this year are again on target to achieve sales of £15 million. Mr Jones added: “There is no doubt that the property market has had another positive year, with buyers and sellers attracted to the speed and certainty of sale an auction provides. This is again reflected in the healthy total of sales that we have achieved at our 2014 auctions.” John Francis’ two-day auction will see a total of 38 properties brought to auction in Swansea and Carmarthen on 27 and 28 November.

Bethan Lewis, Interim Assistant Director of Public Health at Hywel Dda University Health Board (UHB), said: “Throughout the vaccination programme we’ve aimed to make the vaccine easily accessible through a combination of drop-ins and appointments. This change will allow us to deliver the COVID-19 in partnership with primary care and minimise the risk of duplication or vaccine waste.

“If you are eligible for an autumn COVID-19 booster, please wait to be invited by either your GP or the health board. Everyone eligible will be offered an appointment by November.

“GP practices are also preparing to invite eligible patients for their seasonal flu vaccine and aim to offer an appointment to everyone eligible by December. Again, please do not contact your GP practice at this time, you will be invited when it is your turn.”

Scheduled drop-in sessions for children and young people who are home-educated or not in education to access childhood vaccinations routinely offered through school nursing teams will continue as advertised at selected MVCs.
