Described in the catalogue as ‘a rectangular shaped site forming a passageway’, the thin strip of land is situated between a coffee shop and a charity shop on the popular Northcote Road, near its junction the busy Battersea Rise.


The Lot generated plenty of interest from bidders due to its potential, with planning permission granted to build a studio flat. Development includes a ground floor entrance and first floor extension beneath and to the rear of the existing building to create 900 sq ft of living/work space.


After the sale, head of Savills auctions Chris Coleman-Smith said: “The vendor of Lot 144 was pragmatic and realistic with his guide price. In the run up to the auction we received a great deal of interest in the passageway and so we were expecting competitive bidding today”.
