Auction Appraiser Chris Milne said: “With all the flats let and generating a good income, we considered this property ideal for continued investment.

“Our bidders obviously agreed and we had an excellent auction resulting in a great outcome for both vendor and purchaser.”

The property is situated a short distance from Hastings town centre with its various local and national retailers, supermarkets, schools and mainline railway station.

  • In St Leonards, a two-bedroom terraced house needing refurbishment at 7 Mount Pleasant, was sold for £155,000 freehold after strong bidding.

Located in an established residential area, the house is a short distance from Hastings town centre with its various local and national retailers, supermarkets, schools, railway station and the seafront.

Auction Appraiser Jade Flood said: “The house, set back from the seafront and with some sea views, needs refurbishment, but our bidders could see that once enhanced it would be ideal for owner occupation or investment.”

  • More than three-quarters of an acre of woodland in a triangular shaped parcel in Hastings was sold for £10,000 freehold.

The land, adjacent to Underhill in Warren Road, Fairlight, extends to approximately 0.31 hectares (0.79 acres) and is located close to the A21.
