Site sold at auction ‘has huge potential’
A former town centre pharmacy has been sold at auction.
The site in Bank Street, Ashford, achieved a price of £230,000 when it went under the hammer on Monday.
The mid-terrace property, which combines retail and office accommodation, was home to Kamsons Pharmacy until the company moved to the High Street in March last year.
Auctioneer Kevin Gilbert said: “There is huge potential with this lot and it attracted builders and developers. It is close to other retailers and the County Square shopping centre.”
Mr Gilbert added that the upper two floors had a separate ground floor entrance and could be converted to residential units if planning permission was granted.
A 0.84 acre plot of land off Poundhurst Road, Ruckinge, sold on the same day for £100,000.
The next sale is the fifth of the year with Kent lots going under the hammer on Tuesday, July 26, beginning at 11am, at The Clive Emson Conference Centre at Detling, near Maidstone. For more information visit www. cliveemson.co.uk
