A cottage and some odder stuff

Allsop's December auction list had a few properties that caught my eye - including this sweet semi on the Isle of Wight.
No 3 East View Cottages is in the village of Chale Green, around 15 minutes drive from the seaside town of Ventnor and a similar distance from Newport.
It's small - just two rooms and a bathroom downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs but there's plenty of space to extend into its large front and rear gardens:

The cottage is Lot 15, with a guide price of £130k.
The catalogue also includes some more unusual properties, including two rather nice-looking former telephone repeater stations. This one (lot 221), at Drayton in Oxfordshire:

And this one (lot 220) just outside Chippenham in Wiltshire:

Both come with a small plot of land and both have a guide price of £15-£20k.
Finally, I was quite taken by the former office block, below.
Territorial House is in Connah's Quay, Deeside, and, as well as 6,000sq ft of offices, comes with a separate two-bedroomed detached house, yard and car park on a  site of just over half-an-acre.
It's an attractive looking building (no idea what it's like inside) and the whole lot has a guide price of just £75k-£100k. Lot 229.
The auction is on December 17th. Full catalogue here.
