More auction sweeties

Allsop has over 270 properties up for auction next week (don't know whether that's a reflection on Allsop's size or the market's). I've picked out the more interesting 'wrecks'.
Lot 61 is the rather lovely Grade II listed office building pictured above, in Cheltenham. Currently tenanted (three months notice), it's being sold with planning permission to turn it into a three-bed detached house. It has services, parking and a decent-sized garden. Guide price is £200k plus - details here.
Lot 86 is the faded beauty below, in Poole, around five miles from Dorset. It's three-bed, detached and for auction at £130k plus. Details here. (Incidentally, if you're interested in that area, this detached house in Bournemouth, Lot 175, is worth a look)

Rather bigger is Lot 254, a repossessed former care home in Blackburn (below) with, currently, nine bedrooms in the house and extension. It has a guide price of £250k-£300k, Details here.

Finally, Lot 258 is, unsurprisingly given the picture below, significantly cheaper at offers over £40k. However, it's in a nice position, on the edge of a village; around eight miles from Swansea and four from the M4. And it's a wreck, which is what we're about after all. Details here.
