BIDS are starting at just £175,000 for a six bedroom house which auctioneers have described as having huge potential.

Devron House, Lomax Street, Great Harwood is offered for sale via unconditional online auction by SDL Auctions in partnership with Curtis Law.

Bidding ends on Tuesday.

Jason Lee, national sales manager at SDL Auctions, said: “This double-sized property is a house of endless possibilities. It would make a beautiful large family home and has in fact been finished with quality fittings, with décor worthy of a glossy interiors magazine.

"Alternatively, it has the potential to be split into self-contained apartments, subject to planning permission.”

Mr Lee said the traditional exterior belies the ultra-modern interior of the property, which has large black and white chequerboard floor tiles in the hallway, feature striped carpets in the reception rooms and a show-stopping kitchen with glossy red cabinets and central island breakfast bar, with luxury features such as twin gas hobs.

He said these contemporary touches are complemented by period features such as stained glass internal doors, deep skirting boards, bay windows and ornamental coving and ceiling moulds.

Mr Lee added: “The space in this property has to be seen to be believed. With no less than four large reception rooms and six double bedrooms, it also has an attic conversion and a cellar, providing a vast amount of potential.”

On the ground floor is a large hallway with large reception rooms either side, one of which extends to just under 40ft long.

There are two further reception rooms at this level, plus another which is currently used as a storage room. In addition, there is the kitchen and a ground floor bathroom.

The six double bedrooms and two bathrooms can be found on the first floor, which also has stairs to an attic conversion which has a WC and two further rooms, which could potentially make this an eight-bedroomed property.

Outside there is off-road parking and easy access to local amenities, including supermarkets, shops and medical services.
