Agency prepares for first auction
CALDERDALE-BASED estate agency Charnock Bates has branched out into property auctions.
The first auction will be on May 24 in Halifax. The lots include an alluring mix ,from farmhouses and cottages to a derelict barn and a host of development opportunities.
The venue for the event is the magnificent, grade two listed Georgian gem Somerset House designed by John Carr.
“We’re very excited and Somerset House is the perfect place to stage our first auction,” says Stewart Charnock-Bates, who founded his eponymous company in 1984.
The firm is a specialist in the sale of country houses, listed buildings and period properties.
