Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

AUC­TION House has just sold its 2,000th prop­erty and is the first auc­tion­eer in the UK to achieve the to­tal this year.

David Pank, of Man­ning Stain­ton, brought the ham­mer down on the suc­cess­ful lot, which was Ash­field House, a 17bed­room Grade II-listed for­mer nurs­ing home in Thorn­ton, West York­shire.

The prop­erty had been guided at £175,000-£225,000, but even­tu­ally sold for £341,000.

Auc­tion House found­ing di­rec­tor Roger Lake added: “We orig­i­nally ex­pected to sell our 2,000th lot in early De­cem­ber, as we did last year, but the sheer num­ber of lots be­ing listed with us and our 79 per cent suc­cess rate this year has meant that we reached our tar­get six weeks early.”
