This four-bedroom house in Drayton sold at auction for £461,000 this week – well above its freehold guide price of £380,000 plus.

The property in North Street went under the hammer with Clive Emson Land and Property Auctioneers on Wednesday, March 20.

Senior Auction Appraiser Audrey Smith said: “Orchard Rise sits on a superb plot with large mature gardens in a sought-after village.

“Bidders saw past some internal water damage and recognised the potential for this property, whether for owner-occupation, letting or refurbishment and resale.

“The new owner may also wish to extend the property, subject to all of the necessary consents.”

Orchard Rise was auctioned in arrangement with English Homes of Langport.
