A FORMER BT exchange is set to go up for auction.

Guided at £25,000, the freehold land near Wellington comprises a detached brick building with parking and storage space.

Measuring 0.021 acres, the former exchange is situated between residential properties.

The brick building measures 8’ 3” x 7’ 7” internally – bigger than a usual telephone box and offers bidders the chance, subject to planning, to make real any dreams of a Tardis in the country.

There is also a parking and storage area for two or three cars.

Nick Girone-Maddocks, branch manager of Gibbins Richards’ Wellington office, said: "Former BT exchanges are popular with bidders because of the potential they offer for alternative uses.

"Subject to planning, you could look at developing and extending this property, although with the current trend for smaller living spaces who knows? This Lot could spark off a new trend for ultra-micro-homes."

The former BT exchange in West Buckland, Wellington, will go under the hammer with Network Auctions on December 5 at The Westbury Mayfair Hotel, London.
