Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Spate Of Break-ins -

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. cliveem­
