An entire street in Lancashire is up for sale for just £250,0000

A whole street in Lancashire is being auctioned off – and the starting price is just £250,000.

The row of Grade II-listed properties in Accrington are being advertised as an ‘excellent’ development opportunity for potential buyers, LancsLive reports.

It includes a former coach house now being used for storage space, a self-contained two storey office, and a row of terraced cottages.

And it comes with a car park with space for six vehicles.

The properties up for sale span Abbey Street, Black Abbey Street and Jacob Street.

Auctioneers have put a guide price of £250,000 on the lot, which in total covers about 20,000 sq ft.

For the same price you could buy this two bed duplex flat in the Northern Quarter.

Properties near to Black Abbey Street sell for an average price of £67,000, and have increased in value by around 30 per cent this year compared to 2019.

And on Abbey Street, the average sale price is around £74,000 – up by 19 per cent on last year.

The properties up for sale are just a stone’s throw away from Accrington train station and the town centre’s many shops, making it a desirable location for developers.

The auction will take place next Thursday (November 26) at 10.30am via SDL Auctions.
