COMMERCIAL premises in Langport have sold for nearly £20,000 above their freehold guide price at auction.

Located in Bow Street, and formerly used by Mike Deverell Insurances Services Ltd, the building fetched £84,500 when the gavel fell.

It was listed with a guide of £65,000-plus in the fifth auction of 2022 by the regional land and property auctioneers Clive Emson.

English Homes of Langport was joint auctioneer.

Senior auction appraiser Audrey Smith said: “With offices over two floors plus an attic with storage space, this building drew strong bidding at auction.

“The new owner has various courses of action, including continued office use although there is potential for residential conversion or retail subject to the necessary consents.”
