A Henderson res­i­dent will be ner­vously await­ing the re­sult of bids this month when his house goes up for auc­tion.

The man, who has asked not to be named, has put a $1 re­serve on the Edmonton Rd prop­erty.

“I need to go over­seas in June,” he says.

“I was told the best op­tion is a no-re­serve auc­tion.”

“It’s the rules of the auc­tion.

“I just hope a lot of peo­ple turn up on the day.”

The house, at 64 Edmonton Rd, is be­lieved to have been built in 1945 for Claude Brooks, who started off the Tui Glen hol­i­day park.

It will be auc­tioned by Ray White Real Es­tate on May 31 at 1pm.
