A disused lift shaft has been sold off at auction today for £350,000. The beachfront plot on Viking Bay in Broadstairs originally had an asking price of between £40,000 and £50,000. The lot was in the Clive Emson auction, which was held this morning in Maidstone.
Also on the list was a block of public toilets in Longport, Canterbury, which went for £120,000.It was listed as having ‘potential’ in its location opposite Canterbury College and close by to a pay and display car park.
Even a bunker dating back to the Second World War on the Isle of Sheppey couldn’t escape the gavel after it went for £85,000.It was sold as a “rare opportunity” to buy the freehold which was once an air raid post.
Finally, an office building also went under the hammer at the auction, at The Clive Emson Conference Centre. There is a catch though; it’s right next to Sittingbourne’s fire station. It fetched £210,000 after having a guide price of between £210,000 and £220,000.
