Stonehenge goes under the hammer at the next CPBigwood auction on July 2.
However, local pagans shouldn’t start pooling their resources in a bid to buy the open plan arrangement of stones in Wiltshire, just yet.
What is actually up for sale is three self-contained flats at Stonehenge Croft in Druids Heath.
Up for offers over £130,000, the flats bring in a tidy sum of £13,200 per year.
The highest price for a lot at the forthcoming auction has already been achieved – a week before the sale itself.
There has been a conditional exchange of contracts on a massive apartment development in Bilston, which had a price tag in excess of £2.5 million.
Old School Court in Broad Lanes drew in plenty of offers above that, with the winning bid made by the Birmingham property group AH Field.
Even though this property is no longer on the table, there is still plenty to attract buyers, whether they looking for an investment property with rental potential or a home of their own for a bargain price.
There are 123 lots in all, covering an area from Middlesborough to Wales.
Jonathan Hackett, partner and head of auctions for CPBigwood, commented: “There are some lots where we hope to achieve a figure well in excess of guide, some where we predict interest levels will go crazy and others where we have already been inundated with people wishing to purchase prior to auction.
“It is all very positive.”
Prices range from “nil to a mill”.
Lot 14, which is for ground rents on eight townhouses in Elmwood Gardens, Birmingham, is effectively going for “nil” as it has no reserve price.
There are a number of lots that are inviting offers close to or just over a million pounds.
These include a collection of flats, bedsits, lock up shops, workshops and land in Stratford Road, Hall Green.
They currently produce an income of £82,000 but have an estimated full rental income of more than £100,000. This earning potential has seen the guide set at £950,000-£1,050,000.
An apartment complex that is close to Nottingham University and Nottingham Trent University could see a steady source of income from renting to students.
Sunbourne Court, in Alfreton Road, Nottingham, has a guide price of £800,000-£900,000.
A little closer to home, though not far off in price, is a family home that comes with a swimming pool in the much sought after location of Henley in Arden.
Twelve Elms is a five-bedroom detached home that stands in 14 acres of land in Blunts Green, on the edge of the Warwickshire town. A guide price has been set at £850,000-£950,000.
Interest has already been high in New Cottage in Groveley Lane, Northfield, with a price of £95,000 to £115,000. Though in need of modernisation, the two-bedroom home has a pretty period look.
Grade II listed properties tend to be a feature of CPBigwood auctions and there are two for sale at the July 2 event.
A day nursery in Wolseley Road, Rugeley together with neighbouring Chancel Cottage in Church Street, has a guide of £350,000.
Queen Anne House, an office building in High Street, Coleshill, is available for £355,000.
Providence Chapel in New Road Willenhall is not listed but it does date from the Victorian era. With plenty of potential for alternative uses, including residential, its guide price is just £100,000 to £125,000.
Over in the South Staffs village of Wombourne, there are mixed retail and residential investment opportunities in charming looking properties in Walkers Way and on the High Street, overlooking the green and cricket club. Guide prices range from £100,000 to £425,000.
The auction begins at 11am at the Holte Suite, Aston Villa.
