Quirky property heads to the sale room

Thursday 31 January 2019

If you like peace and quiet, NAVA Propertymark Protected Paul Fosh Auctions might have just the thing you're looking for.

The Newport-based auction house is selling off a Grade II listed 160-year-old Monmouthshire property, and it could prove to be ideal for new owners looking for a quiet life.

The ecclesiastically styled, block-built carved stone faced cemetery lodge, which dates from 1854, is situated in the grounds of Chepstow cemetery and has a guide of £150,000 plus.

It is thought that the property was probably once used by the cemetery sexton who maintained the grounds - and whilst the new owner won't be expected to do any digging, they will become the new 'Gatekeeper' of the cemetery.

Located off Mathern Road in the High Beech area, the lodge, which was built in 1854 with more modern additions added in the sixties, is deceptively roomy, with three bedrooms, a conservatory and includes a single parking space to the side. The property also comes with a large enclosed rear garden, headstones no included.

Paul Fosh, owner of the auction house, said: “This quirky property has real potential and would be the perfect period property for those looking to get away from noisy neighbours.

“The cemetery gates are opened and closed for public access at specific times in the day to allow access from the public tending to graves. A key for the gates will be supplied to the new owners on completion of the sale.”

The property, which is being sold on behalf of Monmouthshire County Council, is included as one of some 74 lots being offered for sale at Paul Fosh Auctions on Thursday, February 7, at The Park Inn Hotel, Llanedyrn, Cardiff, starting at 5pm.
