A ‘rather grand’ Victorian detached house near Launceston could be restored to its former glory if it sells at auction.

Yeolmbridge House, at Yeolmbridge, has 12 bedrooms, a dairy and milking parlour, wine cellar, cold store, summer room, a coach house, servants’ quarters, walled gardens and an orchard along with a sweeping private driveway.

Requiring extensive refurbishment, the character property has a freehold guide price of £575,000. 

It is among 174 lots listed in the latest auction being held by one of the top five property auctioneers in the UK, Clive Emson Land and Property Auctioneers.

Auction Appraiser James Lofthouse said: “This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a rather grand detached period residence.

“The property boasts a wealth of character, not to mention the interestingly attached former servants’ cottage, coach house, greenhouses and attractively walled gardens to the rear. 

“However, it requires extensive refurbishment to reinstate it to its former glories. Naturally, it will appeal to owner occupiers wishing to recreate a stunning family home.

“Others may consider the potential for further development, subject to all necessary consents being obtainable.”

Yeolmbridge House is being auctioned in arrangement with Webbers of Launceston.
