3 Bedroom House For Sale


Southberry Close is a detached house set in 1.19 acres situated in a semi-rural location on the edge of the village of Doulting,

Extended by the current owners and offering good sized accommodation, the property would now benefit from renovation and updating works, but it has great potential to be an ideal family home.

On the ground floor, the accommodation comprises a conservatory, dining room / study, downstairs cloakroom, utility room and kitchen / breakfast room. On the first floor, the split landing gives access to the three bedrooms – one double and two good sized singles. The large family bathroom is fitted with a pedestal wash hand basin, low level wc, a separate shower cubicle and a panel enclosed bath.


There is pedestrian and vehicular access across a driveway which is not owned by the property. A public footpath leads up the driveway and then follows the boundary to the east skirting around the house before following the boundary line to the bottom of the garden. There is a detached double garage with two up and over doors, power and light connected. There are formal lawns with a variety of shrubs, plants and trees and a paddock area with a boundary of conifer trees.

In total the plot measures 1.19 acres.


Completion has been set for 16th July 2024, or earlier by agreement.

Registering to bid and Administration fee

Cooper and Tanner require all bidders who wish to bid at our Auction to register beforehand, whether you are intending on bidding in the room, by proxy or online. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to provide card details in order that the Buyer’s Administration Fee of £1350 inc VAT can be paid if you are successful. A week before the auction a hold will be placed on your account for this sum, which will then be released if you are unsuccessful. This fee will only be taken if you are the successful buyer. The fee is retained by Cooper and Tanner and does not form part of your deposit or completion settlement. Please also be aware that the Buyer’s Administration fee is payable per lot purchased and applicable to all pre-auction sales. If you are successful in purchasing more than one lot, we will contact you following the auction to take subsequent payments for additional lots bought. All checks required by current anti-money laundering legislation must be satisfactorily completed, as part of the registration process before prior approval to bid will be granted; this will include providing proof of funds.

The account details will be provided to the successful bidder on conclusion of the auction. Once funds are cleared, they will be transferred on to the account of the solicitor acting for the seller.
