1 Coronation Street to go under the hammer

SDL Graham Penny has a property going under the hammer in its next auction which has one of the country’s most famous housing addresses – 1 Coronation Street.

The property isn’t the home of the Barlow family though, it’s not even in Weatherfield or next to the Rovers Return, instead it’s a two bedroomed end-terrace house in Stoke on Trent on the market  with a *guide price of only £35,000+.

Andrew Parker, auctioneer and managing director, commented: “When we started inviting entries for our next auction we weren’t expecting to include such a famous property address in our catalogue. We’ve already received a huge amount of interest in the property and it’s only been on the market for a few days.”

“Coronation Street is probably one of the most housing famous streets in the UK, behind Downing Street – and we’ve sold a property on there too.”

 The property is a two bedroomed end-terrace house in need of modernisation and improvement throughout, however does benefit from uPVC double glazing and gas central heating. It is being sold by auction on Thursday 16th March at Nottingham Racecourse. Successful buyers will pay a 10% deposit on the fall of the gavel to secure the sale and completion will take place only 14 days later.

Andrew added: “The property on Coronation Street is one of several properties in Stoke that we have received instructions for recently.
